I worked at Unilever as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The company's learning culture is invaluable to an intern and entry-level employees. It has so many resources and invaluable talent within the organization eager to help new talent on board.

Cons

Because the company is so large, getting answers from human resources takes some time. Human resources for North America is centralized at its New Jersey headquarters and all the remote offices are at a disadvantage when wanting questions answered from HR. When asked questions, I am rarely given a clear answer the first time, whether it is deadlines or who to contact for what.

Advice to Management

HR needs to be more personalized. From my observations with my own manager, employees fill out a survey once or twice a year to evaluate the HR department's performance. If HR touched base more often and was more invested in its employees, maybe the results from those surveys would be less scathing.

    I have been working at Unilever full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    exposure to tons of research techniques, from product development and packaging to ad campaigns to in-market evaluations. a company that sees very little attrition, most likely due to the culture and great brands

    Cons

    the split between brand development and brand building creates a lot of extra work, namely through prolonged, self-serving debates. getting promoted is very difficult and not based purely on merit; you're often "waiting in line"


  2. "good working experience for the time"
