Heavy bureaucracy, very slow, more central management that limits flexibility, good sustainability focus.

    I have been working at Unilever

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    good salary, perfect colleagues, stability

    Cons

    so-so career development, no manufacturing plants thus job tasks in Supply Chain are not so interesting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1998-2001 years were better then all time after. Try to return back to initial standards
