Not too many pros here but the sustainability living plan is amazing, also the agile working and working from home option is great

Cons

poor processes improvement strategy, issues are always blamed on people other than actually looking at the process.

    I worked at Unilever full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great culture and work environment
    Very focused on employee development - that is good for you :)
    Exposure to world-class brands
    For those that like to travel - there are global opportunities

    Cons

    Not a decision culture - not enough employees are not empowered to make decisions
    That results in way too many meetings that require too much analysis and too little action

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work on the culture, but, allow for a little more empowerment

    Smart people, good brands, too top heavy to provide opportunities to move up!

    I worked at Unilever full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People are smart and the support functions - consumer research, brand finance, etc mean you can focus on marketing. 4 1/2 stars

    Cons

    They keep consolidating roles at the top so that if you ever hope to move up to the top - and I just mean Director and above - you better plan on being there a LONG time! 2 stars

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide training to everyone who manage people. The level of inconsistency and ability of people to manage other people was at times appalling.
