    Pros: Highly competent pool of people to work with and learn… Cons: Upper management is ruthless when it comes to quarterly earnings Jargon… Advice to Senior Management: I like the Unilever approach better - don't give quarterly earnings predictions. Build morale in your employees.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
