Intern for Department of Finance, Taxes (Former Employee), Ciudad de México, DIFAugust 14, 2012
Pros: great management, friendliness
My main responsibility was creating and analyzing Excel spreadsheets to monitor, predict, and optimize tax reporting for financial and investing decisions.
I learned the complex tax structure that a large multi-national company like Colgate Palmolive employs while understanding the unique tax situation in Mexico. Most importantly, I learned how to minimize – more... tax payments to optimize revenues and profits. – less

Pleasant Working Environment
TECHNICAL WRITER (Former Employee), Piscataway, NJJuly 16, 2012
Pros: the cafeteria was awsome, and i loved the discount on the product line, it definitely came in handy.
Cons: i enjoyed this job alot.
Each day I would come in and research different lab procedures through reading, working with techs, and engineers, and studying prior procedures. I would then begin reformatting and rewriting the SOPs so that they were up to date and user friendly. Although I worked often independently, my manager and I communicated frequently and he kept me aware of – more... my time frames and provided the necessary materials so that I may meet my deadlines.The technicians were very friendly and helpful, and I never had any problem talking or asking questions.The hardest part of the job was just familiarizing myself with some of the terminology, and working with proper calculations and conversions. Overall, I enjoyed the location, and the atmosphere of Colgate-Palmolive. – less
