I'm so tired of this

In the past several weeks rumors of more layoffs have started to circulate around the office, and I am so, so tired of it all. Really Colgate? Really? The enormous cost cuttings from the past several years were not enough for you? Our team has been... —  read more

With this leadership we are doomed

Having just watched the webcast, I'm left with the feeling that leadership has no idea whats happening even one level below them. This is something you are just figuring out now? The way this company has been run for the past several years should... —  read more

Another Layoff.....

Take a deep breath everyone. I was let go from CP. I was hurt and had many emotions going on but when I think back, Colgate Palmolive did me a huge favor. I am managing projects that I could have never done at Colgate due to the crazy politics. I... —  read more

Falling Stock Price

Falling stock price. This is what happens when the Company cut cost to the bone. Shame on Upper Management. Not a single person got fired. I bet they all got Fat bonuses. —  read more

How is the layoff list determined?

In the last few layofffs, I was surprised to see certain individuals let go. One can only imagine it was done intentionally rather than for the sake of growing the business. In some cases management protects who they like. It makes no sense to me. In... —  read more

It will be Ok.

I will never forget how I was treated when I received my layofffs notice. My managers smiled and laughed in my face for two whole months. It was like, I finally got you!. People in Piscataway were afraid to talk to me and isolated me. It was the... —  read more

Layoffs throughout next and the following year

Layoffs will occur in 2018 and all of 2019. With the two new companies Colgate aquired, they need to see who will fits and who will not fit with the new groups. They will treat the new companies as the did Toms. Management is nervous but if they did... —  read more

Don't trust upper management when they say no layoffs

Our upper management told us no more layoffs in Personal Care for 2018. Anybody actually believes this? Upper management will say ANYTHING to get people to calm down and restore some kind of productivity. Scared and stressed employees are not that... —  read more

Colgate is truly out of control

I have seen the worst in people. Behaviors of hate, revenge and just because I can attitude from management. It's truly an organization out of control. For example, some people who were let go in 2011 the hell extended into the following year with... —  read more

Moral Compass is Broken

Once upon a time, Colgate was a better place. Remember, it was never perfect but people cared. This layoff was cold and heartless. People were disrespect and demoralized. Thank you to the many people supporting the folks being let go. You have no... —  read more

Layoff Humor- Not Funny

A lot of people received their layoff notices as of Nov 1st and days after. For the rest of the Colgate population not affected, please refrain from boasting or giving the list of names during your group meeting while laughing. It's not a joke. Stop... —  read more

Hopeful and Blessed

I have to be honest. Nov 1st felt like the day from hell. You sit around and ponder, "how in the hell did this happen to me". You stop feeling motivated and get even more depress because people at work are afraid to speak to you. It's hard to walk in... —  read more

Layoffs on Nov 1st 2017

Corporate will layoff people salary grade 15 and lower who have enough points to qualify on Nov 1st. Henning is an axe man and heads are starting to roll. Apparently, the strategy for growth is cut to the bone and keep cutting until a limb falls off.
