A typical day at Colgate included meetings, onsite or offsite with internal stakeholders such as: Finance, CS&l and Packaging and External Stakeholders such as Advertising agencies etc. I interacted with my manager through scheduled weekly status update meetings to update the senior brand Manager about my project. The co-workers are friendly and open. The most enjoyable part of my job was the product launches, seeing all the hard work come alive. The hardest will have to be managing work-life balance
