I have been working at Unilever

Pros

Relaxed working environment, but very professional at finishing their work. Easily attracts best talent out of University and have a good sense of global recruiting. Leverage of being a multinational offers great opportunities for development. Big push to move East and therefore it would help if you would be interested to at least spend 2-3 years somewhere in the East (China/India). Work/life balance is excellent, and especially in the UK, nice holiday allowance (5 weeks).

Cons

Way too big -- difficult to make a big impact. Bureaucratic at times and so can get sometimes stuffy for young people as there is not great support for new ideas or moving things quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support for new R&D structure

    I have been working at Unilever

    Pros

    - Awesome training program. Its Marketing Academy is perhaps the industry's best.
    - Caring leadership. One key reason I've been so committed to the company is due to the great leaders I've been lucky enough to work with.
    - Global opportunities when it comes to career advancement and professional experience
    - Great brands with many having claiming market leader position in their respective categories

    Cons

    - Complex organizational structure with lots of stakeholders to manage
    - HR system and people have some way to go
    - Brand building - Brand development structure still have a long way to go to make it really work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to feedback
    Actively create forums for employees to do so (not just the annual Global People Survey)
    Show how you act on the feedback - in details
