I worked at Unilever as an intern (Less than a 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 Management

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.

    I have been working at Unilever as an intern (Less than a year)

    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 a 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.
