Great people and opportunities, but you must be willing to work very hard

Former Employee - Intern in Englewood Cliffs, NJ

I worked at Unilever as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

--Summer hours (work an extra hour mon-thurs, take a halfday on friday)
--great people
--agile workspace (can sit in different places)
--great co-op program with meaningful work and lots of exposure
--fantastic company store, especially at the corporate location
--great company vision (reducing environmental footprint by half and doubling the business by the year 2020, based on the benchmark of yr 2000)
--very focused on environmental sustainability, giving the the community/world through the business and people

Cons

--Employees are overworked. Work-life balance encouraged, but does not translate into practice.
--for co-ops/interns, pay does not increase based on having additional work experience & school class credits.
--Large company = difficult to get things done fast

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more employees so that the work is more manageable for everyone. It will benefit your company. Dropping the stress levels = happier employees. People work much better together and are more productive when they aren't constantly juggling 10 different "HOT" priorities.

    Pros

    ~ great atmosphere! very laid back and fun
    ~ Supply Chain is very good with helping employees to see different areas of the company (plants, planning, etc)

    Cons

    ~ more difficult to move between different sectors (supply chain to R&D, etc) than it is to move within sectors

    I have been working at Unilever full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great brands, embraces new media as well as traditional, good op to grow, and plenty of training courses available if you want them.

    Cons

    Don't get me wrong for a company of this size and footprint they DO make decisions, but decisions on new programs, and key hires DO take a while to gain traction.
