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

I temped here for only a few months, I had a great 3 day a week job here and shared with another person so there really wasn't much work for me to do. Too bad, I would have liked to have stayed but I like to be busy and project focused.

Pros: flex work hours, half days on friday, great comprehensive benefits, employee activities committee
Cons: the distance to travel to work was over one hour
Enjoyed the professional and friendly environment. Enjoyed working with all levels of management and learned how to prioritize workload and deal with deadlines. Worked closely with various departments and had heavy interaction with co-workers in other areas of Human Resources. Most difficult part of my job in Human Resources was dealing with terminations – more... and conducting exit interviews. I enjoyed mostly the diversity of the people and the many cultures that made up the talented workforce at Colgate-Palmolive. – less
