Exceptional best brand practices and training

HR is horribly insensitive and antiquated, family mobility's a must so it's hard on two career families and kids.

Advice to Management

Fire your HR officers and develop more family friendly career paths.

    Pros

    Unilever has a great reputation for taking experimental steps towards innovative marketing communication. It's also a great training organization, with high emphasis placed on training new hires. My manager has also been really great in helping me seek additional training to support me in my projects. I was quickly given real projects and real responsibilities upon starting at Unilever, so I've learned a lot!

    Cons

    It's a fairly bureaucratic organization with a lot of processes to learn and manage. As such it's not always as nimble a marketing organization as it could be...

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on process work or empower admins to help their teams with some process work to free us up for more strategic thinking and implementation work.
