    I have been working at Unilever

    Pros

    Unilever is truly a company that cares about their employees. I feel as though I have recieved such an incredible amount of training and unique experiences that will help me shape my career with them in the future. There is no lack of respect or acknowledgement for the completion of good work at Unilever and it seems like an outstanding place to build a career.

    Cons

    Some aspects of the communication between Human Resources and employees as well as Human Resources and Field Management has room for improvement but small changes stand to make big differences on this topic.

    I have been working at Unilever

    Pros

    Unilever views their insight team as a strategic partner and is a very consumer focused business. The Chicago office has a great energy and is a fun place to work.

    Cons

    As with most large corporations, Unilever can be really political and the many processes can be really cumbersome. Also, Chicago office is closing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No words of feedback - experience at Unilever has been really positive and I'd recommend them as an employer to anyone looking to work there.
