    I worked at Unilever

    Pros

    It's good for your resume

    Cons

    -too political
    -favoritism
    -low salary
    -no recognition for efforts
    -first line managers are protected accross all departments
    -don't provide equal opportunities to every employees
    -You are just a number

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Top senior management: you have lost so many good employees over the past 5 years because you have empowered the wrong people. I would suggest that you spend at least a few minutes with each of your employees to understand the true challenges they are going through and collect real honest feedback from them. Employees are afraid to speak up and they end up leaving because of internal corruptions at Unilever. You have invested so much time and money in training and developing people but they all end up leaving because they are treated better outside the company.

    overall; good place to work but eventually compensation is a bit too low

    I have been working at Unilever

    Pros

    Good working environment, team working.
    Flexible working.
    Not too hierarchical, your voice can be heard
    Many opportunities for lateral career move

    Cons

    Slow, bureaucratic, risk adverse
    Lots of statements of intention but does not really materialise
    Compensation definitely below industry average
    Organisation gets flatter, with fewer opportunities to move up whilst more is asked for same level of compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say - too many initiative that go nowhere
    Align compensations on industry average
