    Pros

    It is a big company, with opportunity to move around a lot.
    You have to be a special breed to do it, but you may even get as far as a level 3 or 4, but that is only for the exalted few

    Cons

    The ideal Unilever person is one who joins with no real experience of how other companies work. You can be moulded into the company ideal, complete with inane phrases and three letter acronyms. With the required amount of arrogance and distain for both your colleagues, and especially anyone who you consider your subordinate, you will think your are getting ahead in the structure, but your goals will always just be beyond your reach.
    All the time your personal life will suffer from the long hours, and poor pay.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the silly sounding phrases and the incessant new ideas from the consultant de jour. Get rid of the layers of useless management and ask the ones who actually do the work
