No opinion of CEO

Pros

Name recognition, global organization, opportunity for growth

Cons

Continuously changing, silo mentality, very large organization, complex structure, costly unit/region reporting structure, lacks work/life balance

Advice to Management

Structure is complex and redundant needs to be simplified in order to reduce costs and improve efficiencies. Example: why is the marketing manager/director for Mexico work out of Argentina?

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible working conditions Great global brands Opportunity to learn Good name on CV

    Cons

    - Poor leadership and management - Low transparency and incompetent feedback given to employees - very negative and unconstructive - Outsourced HR and IT - Highly bureaucratic and inflexible. Internal moves and promotions difficult - Don't feel like management care about any of their employees on a personal level despite the business' vision to "improve the quality of people’s lives". - A lot of talk with no substance. Management look for evidence of employees' "Standards of Leadership" but don't display any themselves (http://www.unilever.co.uk/careers/apply/graduates/applicationguidanceandtips/) - Many disgruntled employees and low retention among staff in certain areas of the business reflects some of these factors

    Advice to Management

    Employee some true leaders that know to listen to their employees. Live your values rather than just preaching them.


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