Unilever is a stable company, with plenty of career development and a focus on social responsibility

Trade Marketing Analyst (Former Employee) Englewood Cliffs, NJ

ProsStable 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

ConsSlow-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 Senior ManagementListen to your employees. Slow career progression and fixed job responsibilities stifle collaboration and growth.
