As a follow-up to this article, I wanted to talk one-on-one with the leadership teams of the two companies and get their insights on the ten-year comparison.
The good, bad, and the ugly on my experience. It has a wide variety of job opportunities and encourages employees to advance themselves internally. It also has opportunities to travel and move to different areas in the US and abroad as Colgate-Palmolive has facilities in numerous countries.
In the analytical lab where I was employed, the work load was heavy and the pace was very fast. I did enjoy the work, but the work load became too much because of some not so work oriented co-workers.
The job security enjoyed there has the drawback of allowing less desirable employees to keep a position and often make the work load heavier for those who do work so well.
I also tested many raw materials to ensure they met specifications as well. The chemist position was responsible for following all test procedures, using proper protective gear as trained, and rules for the plant and areas in the plant.
All testing and paperwork had to meet FDA regulations since even toothpaste falls under their jurisdiction.
A typical day consisted of testing paste, entering the data generated, entering data on raw materials, and cleaning the glassware, etc. The lab was under constant pressure to meet the time limits set on many of the materials tested. It also had to cope with an expanding group of materials being tested and the new procedures required for their testing.
It was becoming a position that had the chemists over extended physically and mentally to keep track of all the procedures etc. I would have long since found another job had health conditions not caused me to pulled from work on advice from my doctors.
It was satisfying to ensure products met specifications that were going to be used by the public. It brought a sense of pride to see those products siting on the shelves in stores for sale that had a high probability of having been tested by myself and know that I had helped a large number of people with staying healthy.
The work load and some of the other employees made the job a miserable experience for me. I did enjoy the company overall although my experiences in the lab were not good.
