*Presige within the CPG industry opens up doors if/when you decide to leave the company

Cons

*Too structured and rigid
*Not enough opportunity to move around within different functions in the company
*Outside of brand/marketing it is hard to move up in the organization

    I have been working at Unilever full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place if you are in a senior position or just starting out. Great training and mentoring. Opportunity to work on world-class brands and cutting edge management best practices.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic style. Too process oriented. Unless you have a seat at the table, it's hard to get your voice heard. Unilever is too big which makes it slow to react to react and decisions take a long time. Not suited for professionals who prefer a fast-paced environment. Very long and odd working hours. Too much power centered in Europe which puts employees based in the US at a slight disadvantage in terms of work recognition

    I have been working at Unilever as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Location, Chicago is a great city. Smaller office.

    Cons

    The Foodsolutions division is somewhat of an afterthought in the broader conversation at Unilever. Completely sales driven environment: sales staff superfluously pass out subsidies to make a sale, thereby diminishing any brand value of Unilever's products.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people in Operations who actually know what they're doing. Hire people in Sales with some backbone and willingness to stand up for the company, rather than continuously bending over for the customer.
