Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

I worked at Unilever full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There was an emphasis on learning and growing within the organisation.

Cons

The objectives of the management trainee program were not well articulated, and it seemed like HR just kept on guessing what to do. Proper methods of giving feedback are not in place

Advice to Management

Encourage a more feedback friendly environment, especially in the Nigerian business where I worked.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    True emphasis on sustainable growth - operating ethically will deliver improved sales
    Outstanding people and collaborative culture
    Genuine work/life balance achieved for most employees
    Wonderful brands that really do improve consumers' lives
    Good pay, based on good performance
    Still massive opportunities to grow in new markets and win share through innovation

    Cons

    Decision-making can be painfully slow - driven by consensus culture and obsession with keeping everyone happy and informed
    Product performance is not necessarily as good as competitors in some areas (laundry, some foods) and some ranges have become too flabby and indistinct
    Extraordinarily hierarchical - like the colonial civil service in some respects
    Not a business for mercurial minds and instinctive, creative spirits

    Advice to Management

    A record-breaking year in 2012 and another in prospect for 2013 despite global downturn. The temptation must be to just carry on what we're doing right now. But we have to be faster, more imaginative and less bureacratic if we're to see off hungry competitors. We talk about it, but I don't see the people aroud me changing...
