    I have been working at Unilever full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its an organization that pushes you to learn & grow every single day, as you step into BIG Meaty jobs very early in your career. There is never a dull moment and I have always felt challenged with exciting roles and new responsibility. To add to the wonderful journey, I have always been blessed with mentors who genuinely care for me and my development. Leaders take it upon themselves to build more leaders, and that creates a wonderful virtuous cycle! The best thing about Unilever is that it lets me be Me, every day.. and the people who surround me are all so bright, genuine and driven that it makes my journey even more inspiring and enjoyable!

    Cons

    Because we are large and spread across the world, we have to work on ensuring we remain simple.

    I worked at Unilever as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Internship program is highly beneficial. The program they run is real work, real experiences. They give tremendous housing for interns and give the best care for them possible. As in intern, I got to work directly with one of the directors on a project and was treated as a full time employee. I value the experience I gained from that program. Unilever values talent, great people working for them, and a better world. All around great company to work for.

    Cons

    I have no cons for this.

    Great place to learn and develop early in your career. Recognizes talent and promotes from within. Agile work environment with flexibility in working hours and schedule.

    I have been working at Unilever as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance was certainly fair, never had to fight for time off when it was needed. Everyone that I worked with was absolutely amazing, saw the big picture of their work. Could not be happier with what I learned and what was taught to me.

    Cons

    Overall there is not much I can say about cons. The company is a great company and is certainly heading in the right direction.
