    Current Employee - Manager in Englewood Cliffs, NJ

    I have been working at Unilever full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Extremely ethical, progressive, competitive pay, collegial, smart & nice people. Stellar brands!

    Cons

    Silos, too much reliance on broken "systems" for such things as paying vendors, filling in annual goals & objectives. There is also no on-boarding - very difficult to understand all of Unilever's complexities. Sink or swim. Some leaders constantly talk about how the company "overpays" and how some people just don't work hard enough. Nearly impossible to get rated for "great performance," even if you're killing yourself trying to do the job of a couple of people.

    Extremely hierarchical.

    Former Employee - Trade Marketing Analyst  in  Englewood Cliffs, NJ
    Former Employee - Trade Marketing Analyst in Englewood Cliffs, NJ

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

    Pros

    Stable growth environment
    Managerial support for career development
    Opportunity to work on major brands and to manage huge, complicated budgets and P&Ls
    Generous benefits package
    Flexible work environment

    Cons

    Slow-moving
    "Process" often interferes with nimble career changes
    Difficult to get into marketing and brand management without an MBA
    The US is seen as a "training ground" for global leadership, so senior leadership is in constant flux
    Tendency to "buy" into categories rather than growing there leveraging internal expertise
    Reliance on consulting firms to provide expertise already available in-house

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Slow career progression and fixed job responsibilities stifle collaboration and growth.
