Productive but a bit repetitive
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Morristown, TNJuly 2, 2015
It was a great company to be employed; I however was a temporary employee and was unable to experience the benefits. A typical day at work included performing the same tests on a sample of each batch produced.

Overall good company in a challenging economy
Logistics Planning Specialist (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KSJune 22, 2015
Hill's Pet Nutrition is unfortunately on the decline due rising cost of materials in a struggling economy. Consumers can not afford to pay top dollar for pet food like they used to a decade ago.

Global company

Very limited opportunites for advancement without a degree

Global Business Practices Investigator (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, NYJune 22, 2015
Although I enjoyed the fact policies and procedures were in place, most of the time work was delayed awaiting for management to approve/finalize in order to move on with workload.
Enjoyed the work with different teams

The company Does Not give the individual to work freely and expand their ideas. Very conservative in the way they function and there is no space for advancing within the company.

They say take your time and do your job right as the breath down your neck because production isn't high enough. They do not have a good safety culture and contradict themselves.

R&D Intern (Former Employee) –  Piscatway, NJJanuary 23, 2015
This was my first internship ever. I learned what it felt to work in a corporate workplace. It was mostly the interns and temps that were working in the lab while the scientists/management did the desk work. It was fun because it was next to Rutgers.

Colgate is a factory
Technical Technician (Former Employee) –  Morristown, TNJanuary 8, 2015
Go to work, as a technical tech you are not allowed to work on anything unless it is approved by engineering, or quality control. A problem that can be fixed in 20 minutes takes hours because the tech has to wait on someone in management to make a decision.
Frustrating
Pros
great work enviroment
Cons
lack of management decision making

Great people to work with. Long hours. Management changes frequent.
Plant Processing/Project, - Sr. Engineer (Former Employee) –  Richmond, INJanuary 2, 2015
6am or 7am start day ending at 5pm or later depending on needs.

I learned a lot about "Supply Chain" budgets, and manufacturing in general. What all goes into putting product on a shelf..

In management, decisions are hard at time, but it is always better to be upfront and truthful to employees.

There were many changes happening at the same time.

The most enjoyable part was the laughter that surrounded the people that I worked with. They are very good people there.
Pros
good people

Global Master Production Planner/Manager (Former Employee) –  Richmond, INDecember 13, 2014
I loved working for Hills-Colgate Palmolive. I regret leaving this company just for the opportunity for more money and new growth opportunity.

They care about their employees. Culture is one of positive recognition, mutual respect, work/life balance, and personal growth and development opportunities.

They have strong processes that support continuous improvement, work procedures, and problem solving.

Very well managed, structured, and focused on the success of not only the business but their employees.

Can't say enough good things about my experience and this company!
Pros
great culture, personal development and pay

Senior Package Engineer (Current Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 5, 2014
This Global company offers a lot of opportunity with challenging workloads that allow you to learn a lot and exposes you to other functional areas within the company.

Very charitable company and highly involved within the community which is awesome for active volunteers (like myself).

The worklife balance is fairly respectable!
