Good place to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Its a fun place to work. Very challenging in a good way. There are plenty opportunities to grow and to travel abroad. If one is focus and know what they want to become they have the opportunity to be that in this company


Career development. Opportunity to go work abroad


Long hours, it comes with the territory

Great place to grow, bad place for balance

Great opportunities to grow. Good salary. They invest in your development and provide great opportunities. Most of the people are really nice. On the flip side working there comes with high stress and poor work life balance. Be prepared to work very long hours. Systems need to be modernised and EQ not always present in company. Good MD (firm, fair and compassionate ) in 2021, and some of his Exco team.Carrot and stick approach by management ...but the stick has a sharp blade at the end.


Nice people, global company, sales development


Long hours, high stress, poor systems management

Friendly working Environment

A hardworking and goal driven Accounting/Finance Graduate, seeking a more challenging opportunity to acquire new skills and develop existing ones. I have the ability to work in a team and am looking to contribute my knowledge and skills to an organization willing to invest its resources in me.

Orders Processing and Customer Service

My typical day, was basically the same everyday nothing more or less, however it was a good experience working there at the time, the people and management are all good people and they have also an open office policy which is great and they give you all the training and tools to make your work comfortable and easy for you. The hardest part of my job was that I had to travel and getting up very early to get to work, but it was worth the trip, because I did enjoy my work and the people I worked with was amazing and always available if you need assistance


Company was to far


Long hours traveling

Consistent Market Leader in Toothpaste & Fabric Care Category

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


Exposure to international Segments


A lot of Red Tape since its an International company
