    Pros

    Great coworkers, great brands, perks, training

    Cons

    Life work balance is messed up! They aren't replacing people as they leave and expect current employees to pick up the slack. There used to be five people in my current territory...now there is only one. They are also beginning to micro-manage every aspect of the sales cycle. They keep adding extra work and expect things not to fall through the cracks. Stress levels are extremely high among my peers and morale is low. Unilever wants to double in size by 2015 and I'm sure they will do it, but they are working their current employees to death.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people! Please reward us for hitting all of our targets as a company for the first time ever!!
