    Pros

    - Ok Benifits
    - Free product/company store
    - Pay for relocation for most job changes
    - Good people to work with
    - Opprotunities to advance, in sales functions this may require a move
    - Managers who do care about their people, however all of the "rules" some times get in the way of doing what is right for people

    Cons

    - The "rules" they will promote you and give you more work however they claim the rules don't allow you to get the full salary bump needed
    - There is no way to move up in Unilever without taking on managment over people and some people just aren't cut out to be managers and get forced into jobs they are not good at to get promoted it leaves you with some very bad teams to work for
    - There is not a lot of connection from the sales team to upper managment to give direction or have an understanding of what its really like in the trenches.

    Advice to Management

    They have a good vision however they do not do a good job carring this out on individual teams.
