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

    Pros

    The work atmosphere in the Trumbull, CT office was family oriented. People were always very friendly to one another and teams felt like families. As an intern, I was highly respected among all my coworkers. There is a lot of room to grow in the company too with the companies rotational program.

    Cons

    I was not a fan of the location in Trumbull, CT but that is personal preference.

    Associate brand managers receive outstanding marketing training and are given a high level of responsibility and autonomy. Most of the people who work at Unilever are very smart and nice, enabling strong collaboration.

    Cons

    Long hours. Can be challenging to navigate some of the bureaucracy. Path to promotion is not as quick as at some other consumer packaged goods companies.
