    I have been working at Unilever PLC

    Pros

    Unilever 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

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    I'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.

    I worked at Unilever PLC

    Pros

    Unilever is father/mother of marketing so the opportunity to work in the marketing function is hugely attractive. As a brand manager you "own" the brand and coordinate the rest of the company to grow/protect it.

    Cons

    It's a massive global company, so connections to overseas colleagues was much less than I was expecting. Also the functions are in silo's so you are not expected to look beyond your function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Two changes should be assimilated quicker. 1) The role of private label and the threat from powerful retailers and 2) non traditional media (80% of marketing spend is still ATL)
