    I worked at Unilever

    Pros

    Unilever is huge and has very good opportunities. There are many different career paths and experiences, and generally amazing people to work with.

    Cons

    Due to it's large size and piecemeal heritage, Unilever often seems hectic and unorganized. It is frustrating to get things done sometimes, and many situations require a lot of creative effort and knowing the right people. In the lower levels, there is a mix of laid back and work-a-holics, but many of the director level and above have "sold their souls" to Unilever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember people are one of your most important assets, and "global" may not work all the time.

    I have been working at Unilever

    Pros

    I believe the opportunites to work in diverse areas and to travel and experience different culture within the context of a work experience are definite pluses. In addition, you could really take advantage of benefits such as tuition reimbursement or even further your interests in supporting volunteer activities. I have been able to volunteer my time during work hours to help build houses for Habitat for Humanity and also to spend time in inner city schools speaking to middle school students through Junior Achievement. I think few employers support these efforts as wholeheartedly as Unilever.

    Cons

    As with large companies, there is a lot of bureacracy involved which makes change often slow and/or complex.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the little people, they are the one that do all the work!
