TECHNICAL WRITER (Former Employee), Piscataway, NJ – July 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

Pros: location, cafeteria, company store
Cons: plant location
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.
Relaxed atmosphere and very family oriented company.

Teamleader (Current Employee), Durban, ZN – September 9, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: shift work
I manage an entire shift crew and act as production manager on evening and late shifts. I have gained vast skills and knowledge while working for an international company. I control, plan and manage staff according to business needs, I always lead by example in EOHS and Quality issues.
Enjoyed and learned new facets of business in this arena. Work handled was too scientific in nature. Lot of exposure in to product sciences and market dynamics along with brand equity. Co-workers are co-operative and disciplined. Hardest part of job was aligning local market needs and global templates and expectations. Being at the center of every decision – more... making process was enjoying. – less
