I have been working at Unilever full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good people.
Work-life balance and flexible hours
Half Day Summer Friday's
Genuine attempt by Leadership to communicate often with the employees.
Good pay
Nice office space
Well known brands in food and personal care and reduced price merchandise from the company store is a nice touch

Cons

New kids out of business school every year in Brand Management purpotedly to be "digitally relevant". Most do not know how business works and has barely any knowledge of who does what within the organization. Lots of churn.

Agile working environment - like a call center. Be ready to plug and play wherever. Keep your pictures, trophies and plaques at home.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Highly political, too many flavor of the month goals, managing up more valuable than hard work

    I have been working at Unilever

    Pros

    Decent pa, especially if you're hired from outside the company. Lots of opportunities if you're willing to take on extra projects and play the right game with management.

    Cons

    Horrible change management. Insufficient training, low employee morale, struggling to satisfy too many objectives with poor up-front preparation results in extra burden on employees.
