Put People First is one of the Pillars of Unilever, unfortunately not practiced in the real work setting

Associate Brand Manager (Current Employee)
Englewood Cliffs, NJ

I have been working at Unilever full-time for more than a year

ProsGlobal company, you own managing the brand from day 1 and you make recommendations that you can see in practice immediately

ConsNO WORK-LIFE BALANCE, especially in the personal care categories. You are expected to work constantly and there is no such thing as vacation or sick time. Takes 4-5 years to be promoted when after 2-3 years, almost all ABMs are ready to be managers. Major disconnect between Global and Regional teams

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to get to know your employees and put the Compass in practice. If employees felt appreciated for their 16 hour work days, then not so many people would be running out the door like they currently are

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

Brand Manager (Former Employee)
Englewood Cliffs, NJ

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


Pros: People are smart and the support functions - consumer research, brand… Cons: They keep consolidating roles at the top so that if you ever hope to move up to the top -… Advice to Senior Management: Provide training to everyone who manage people. The level of inconsistency… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
