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

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

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
