I have been working at Unilever full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Big company, lots of opportunity if you are flexible and can move around the world. Great entry level job, but then get out by the time you make it to manager. Nice sustainability agenda.

Cons

Zero growth in NJ. Less upper management roles every year. Downsize and restructuring is the norm. Work life balance is poor. Leadership does not deliver. Leadership is encouraging an up or out mentality... meaning if you are not promoted in a couple years, you will be let go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be careful what you wish for as you'll be losing a lot of your top talent.

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

    Pros

    Coming in with zero experience, my time here really helped me grasp concepts that I learned in the classroom. Having this company on my résumé really gave me a competitive edge compared to other students.

    Cons

    Lack of attention from some managers that did not care about the work I was trying to contribute.

    I worked at Unilever as an intern

    Pros

    Work/Life balance was great, good people, not a lot of bureaucracy, upper-management does an excellent and competent job

    Cons

    Not great at matching skill-set to task, bad at project follow-through, a lot of brainless co-workers, a lot of brash people in the NJ office, a lot of ideas and not a lot of actions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I was on a co-op in 2011 we were told that Unilever strives to retain their interns. I finished my co-op and received an excellent evaluation and an offer to come back. I built my experience the next summer at different company before graduating and interviewing for a full-time position with Unilever. I didn't even make it to the second interview -- perhaps this is why the lower-level talent struggles around you! This mired my time here throughout various projects: Great ideas, no execution!
