    Pros

    Unilever is a company surrounded with good people. The office seems more like a family than just co-workers. They ensure that people are rewarded for a job well done. Great place to learn about the Consumer Goods Industry, especially if you are just graduating. I highly recommend trying to start your career with this company.

    Cons

    There can be times with a lack of management when you are a new employee. If you reach out to others, the employees are usually well trained and have been with the company for many years so they are willing to help you learn.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger mentee programs for your entry-level full time employees

    Pros

    Unilever is an ethical company that strives to treat its employees well, at least in comparison to companies of similar size. It also understands the benefits of giving back to the surrounding communities and involves it's employees in its community service projects. Unilever respects the Work/Life balance of employees and offers flexible work arrangements, enabling employees to give their best without sacrificing their personal lives.

    Cons

    Unilever needs to better educate its management in skills related to employee development, and leadership abilities. It's difficult to gain a promotion without moving to another position under a new manager. There should be more emphasis on rewarding individuals who work above expectations and an established method for employees to recognize other employees for outstanding work.

    Advice to Management

    People are the most important asset of a company and Unilever has incredibly talented people. Make sure to see the "big picture" and not just short term cost cutting to achieve a bonus for a year. This will not help the company in the long term. Make sure to use the talents of employees to the fullest and take the time to know what those talents are.
