Great company to work for

The company is great to work for, have great benefits. this plant is fairly new and it needs to create their own culture, management has evolve in the last couple years and I think they're going to the right direction, but i still feel they are disconnected from the reality of what the technicians have to do to still have machines running, scheduling is a thing they need to work on.

Colgate was a great place to work at.

My time at Colgate was less than a yr due to being hired to help close the plant. During that time frame, I learned how to run 4 lines and drive a forklift. I would love to work for them again.

Stressful workplace with no recognition for better performance

The middle management doesn't set a good example to their employees to maintain life/work balance appropriately, doesn't make any considerable efforts to get high performing employees valued and longer hours compensated. Highly skilled and qualified people are not retained by the company. All initiatives are slow down due to delays with decision making at middle management level (due to fears to experiment and test). Company has great values but their implementation and interpretation by some managers are far from being perfect.

Pros

50% compensated lunch, 20% annual bonus, company car for grades 16+, medical insurance benefits.

Cons

Longer working hours, lack of fair recognition for high performers, management style is old fashioned, 4) non-retaliation policy is not followed if you speak up using employee engagement survey.

Colgate has great benefits and a great atmosphere however....

Interning at this company was a great foot in the door for students. Most people who work at the company are friendly and some are just very busy to even have a conversation.

The people you work with keep you going

Anyone will tell you the best part of Colgate is its people. Most coworkers are friends in real life and that’s just the way it goes for most of us here. Everyone is willing to drop everything to help one another succeed. Middle management and our agency capabilities can be challenging - but the pride of the brands you present and the people keep you going.

Pros

People, culture, iconic brands, good benefits

Cons

Middle management not equipped to manage, agency capability limitations, slow to evolve
