Liked the job, but manager was horrible. It comes across as an open environment, which it is if you work in sales and marketing, but any other department it is not so much. Some people who have tenure there seem a bit miserable.
Pros
35 hrs/wk
Cons
Too far, people too busy to take lunches

Job Culture
The culture is highly collaborative and fast paced. The leadership is strong and they ensure enough investment in team building and community initiatives to ensure that the employees are engaged throughout the year with the company.

It is a top global company to learn and work for several years, however, with less and less opportunities to grow at managerial positions since company is aggressively consolidating operations and reducing positions. Very financial company very focus in core business with not focus on expansion.

Colgate has changed over the years. Back when I started, there were many opportunities to grow your career as long as you were willing to relocate to another country. However, times have changed as positions have been merged or migrated to shared service centers in India, Poland or Mexico. If you work for the company, it is good to learn as much as you can, but you should seek outside opportunities once you have done so.
Pros
Collaborative work environment
Cons
lack of upward career growth

Management needs to be trained as there is a fear culture in some areas.......not too much space to grow a career in Canada - no understanding of work life balance - not flexible on working from home even with all the tools available which notice lacks of trust on the employees

Job Culture
A working environment that recognizes the individual effort.
Respects a person ethnic diversity.

Challenges a persons abilities and creates opportunities for personal growth.

During my 30 plus years of corporate life I've learned to be a good listener and tried to acquire the skill of knowing what is not being said.Never to miss an opportunity to recognize other people accomplishments.

Managing managements ego is a required skill to survive in todays corporate environment

The hardest thing to accept is the unjust outcome of some situation that are totally out of your sphere of influence .

The most enjoyable part of a job is to see the plan unfold and see the faces of the people that benefit from the outcome.
Pros
Having a successful quarter were most objectives have been met
Cons
Having a bad quarter going from hero to zero in a 3 month period

Unfortunately the contract position was supposed to last longer than expected. However, due to restructuring of the office, many people were being let go - starting with the contract workers first.
