Tax Accountant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 20, 2018
Colgate is a great company to work for, it offers great work life balance.Colgate allowed me to grow within my role. Management styles differed by Department. Some colleagues had great managers that aided in their development, some Managers like the ones I reported to were very hands off, which hindered growth. Colgate offered exercise classes 4 days per week which was great, they also had a Nurse Practitioner on staff, which was extremely helpful at times, since it was easy to get a prescription if needed. The only problem I have with Colgate is its constant restructuring and or outsourcing of jobs. I believe this is counteractive in its believes in that they really don't care about their employees. I believe Colgate could have tried harder to save jobs, by reducing other spending such as company match for annual giving campaign. They could have also saved money with constant floor renovation. Floors were remodeled then decided they were no longer going to use it. This wasted money could have been used to save someone's job. I believe Colgate should become more conscientious with its decision to cut jobs, especially in a time we live in, where people are committing suicide for various reasons.
Great work life balance, with flexible working hours.
Maintenance Technician III (Former Employee) – Morristown, TN – May 15, 2018
Management is unpredictable and inconsistent. Employees are abused and bullied. Human resources is a joke when complaints are filed by employees. Human resources play favorites to any employee that will drop a dime on other employees.
No work life balance, since your salary they don't care if you work all day, all night and weekends. They make you feel like your job is in jeopardy if you don't meet all your company objectives like a sales number that is unrealistic.
Integrated Marketing Communications Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 9, 2018
As an intern, it was great sitting in on meetings and learning about a company that has been around my entire life. It was great experiencing all the effort and brains that go into something the outside world sees as so simple.
Pay is pretty good considering there isn't much expected other than showing up. Hourly workers are all paid the same (except warehouse, who are paid a few dollars less, and Tech Techs, who are paid a few dollars more). So, a new hire, makes exactly the same as someone who has been there 10 years. Great for the new hire, not so great for the experienced person.
So, you get paid the same, whether you bust your tail, or do nothing all shift. So what kind of culture do you think that breeds?
Management is horrible. Don't worry, they only stick around for a couple of years, then they move on or quit. Colgate Morristown is a revolving door for management trainees. Some come in and try to make a difference, and are promptly shut down. Others come in and simply do their time and try not to make waves.
Everything is an illusion at Colgate. Quality, Safety, Environment, Work-Life balance. All is made out to be top notch, but in reality it is all just lip service. This facility is the most unprofessional place I have ever worked. It is laughable that it continues to run and Colgate still makes million$ from this factory.
All that being said, if you can stand to be a part of a mediocre workforce with horrendous management, and do little to no work, for pretty decent pay ($18+/hr) then this is the place for you.
Pay, benefits, vacation, company store, climate controlled
management, forced overtime, lazy coworkers, incompetent and uncaring supervisors
