    Fantastic place to work for and learn.

    Finance Director (Former Employee)
    Mexico, Distrito Federal (Mexico)

    ProsPeople oriented, international workplace. Highly competitive.

    ConsWork load and too many meetings (of which many do not add any value) keep you out from the real world. It is a big shock when you leave the company.

    Great place to work

    Learning Manager (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsHeadroom to follow up on new ideas, friendly atmosphere, truly global, very human generally, inspiring CSR mission that really matters (not just greenwashing), very varied, some roles offer good work-life balance, virtual working

    ConsCan be a bit silo-mentality, need to do lots of stakeholder management which can slow things down a bit, pay is good but not best-in-class but the pros outweigh this IMHO

    Exciting, challenging, rewarding and fun.

    Customer Account Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsUnilever is a very large global company and as a result there are a plethora of opportunities both in the UK and abroad.

    The Unilever culture is based around people. They understand stand that if they treat the employees right then they will get the success that they want.

    ConsDue to the size of Unilever, you can sometimes find yourself lost in such a huge organization. when in the UK business it is sometimes hard to think of the business as global, however my next role in brand development may help to change this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would say that the higher levels should get more traction with the Unilever graduates. It is the Unilever Future Leaders Program and therefore i believe meeting higher management at the start would provide inspriation and support for the future.

    Unilever, a lovely company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsUnilever is a lovely company to work for with awesome opportunities for learning, personal and professional development through trainings and on the job skills acquisition. There are systems and processes in place to guide and aid performance. There is strong emphasis on delivery of set targets while not compromising ones integrity

    ConsThere is usually a lot to do so if time management is not a strong competence, there is the tendency to get work life balance wrong.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI'm enjoying my career in Unilever and I think it is a result of the clarity of the focus and direction of the leadership team. There are also many members of the leadership team that inspire confidence and respect in me.
