Current Employee - Finance Manager in Englewood Cliffs, NJ
Current Employee - Finance Manager in Englewood Cliffs, NJ

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 full-time (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

    Former Intern - Supply Chain Co-Op in Englewood Cliffs, NJ

    I worked at Unilever as an intern (less than a 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.
