    Pros

    Good work and life balance company culture. Benefits are good. Generally speaking, the working pace is good, not too slow not too fast. Good globalization between sites across the word.

    Cons

    Too large middle-management level, extremely complex structure of management and reporting line. Too many stakeholders to employee and difficult and no time to concentrate on to deliver a high quality work.

    Pros

    Fantastic easy going relaxed culture where everyone is passionate about what they do. Love the attitude to flexible working and family friendly policies.

    Cons

    Compared with similar roles at other multinationals in the South East, the salaries are not at all competitive meaning that lots of folks stay for a while so they can include Unilever on their cv's, then move on.

    Advice to Management

    None
