Colgate 2025 Strategy

Any intel on the news we will see at the end of March? Prices going up for sustainability? Restructuring? New approach to e-commerce? Feels like we are already very lean here...thoughts?

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

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

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

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

Severance pay?

I was wondering if somebody who was let go as part of the latest Colgate layoffs could tell us what kind of severance package they received? I'm pretty sure they are far from done and we'll be learning about new layoffs soon, so knowing what to... —  read more

People Eyes Are Now Open

This recent layoff really opened the eyes of many people. You can't have a department meeting to discuss the layoffs and new organization changes hoping to raise hopes and morality knowing we have 2018 and 2019 layoffs still looming. Boys and Girls... —  read more

Time to speak up

A few people lost their jobs today out of hate, ignorance and revenge. Right now I can honestly say we are living in a cultural environment that isn't fair. Sadly race plays a role and so does gender. Let's not forget age. The behaviors I am seeing... —  read more

Didn't Deserve

I have known this individual for a very long time. This person was funny, smart and could put a smile on your face. A real cool person. Today, my dearest colleague lost their job. I can't begin to understand why and how. It didn't make sense. When I... —  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

Crazy Place

Help me understand something. What was the point of letting people go only to hire the ones you want. Favorites....If you read the job openings, you can clearly see they are for specific people based on the job description. So why tell people to... —  read more

Moving Forward

This was a crazy week. But I think we have learned a few things: No one is safe You can do great work but it will not guarantee your job is safe. If management doesn't like you or hear negative perception you will be on the chopping block. It's... —  read more

Is Colgate done with round 2?

Are we out of the woods yet? Seems very calm in my office, so calm that I am starting to worry it's quiet before the storm. I realize I am probably just being paranoid, but if anybody knows for sure if all the layoffs were done with yesterday, please... —  read more
