I worked at Unilever PLC

Pros

Name recognition, global organization, opportunity for growth

Cons

Continuously changing, silo mentality, very large organization, complex structure, costly unit/region reporting structure, lacks work/life balance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Structure is complex and redundant needs to be simplified in order to reduce costs and improve efficiencies. Example: why is the marketing manager/director for Mexico work out of Argentina?

    I have been working at Unilever PLC

    Pros

    Unilever 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.

    Cons

    Due 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 ManagementAdvice

    I 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.

    A company with great values and strong ethics but level of persistent on-going change is unsettling good people.

    Former Employee - Finance Director

    I worked at Unilever PLC

    Pros

    Strong values and ethics
    Diverse middle management
    Strong corporate social responsibility
    Very talented and bright people
    Collegiate, consultative work style
    Driven, ambitious people who are on the whole respectful of others
    Well established control processes mean this a business that is less likely than others to make bad decisions.

    Cons

    Collegiate and consultative style can delay decision making.
    Control processes can be badly applied by some individuals limiting creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.
    More needs to be done with regard to diversity, particularly in leadership roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide on a clear strategy and stick with it for sufficient time to see the outcome. There has been so much change in recent years, some of it very necessary, but there comes a time to stabilise the business and focus on competing.
