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

    Pros

    Globally recognized and diverse product line. Great company for individuals with the end justifies the means mentality.

    Cons

    Not a true team environment. Individual achievement promoted even at cost of counter productivity to team members. Lack of true leadership. No loyaltiy to employees only to profit and self agenda. Time and cost valued greater than meeting consumer requirements. Passes increase cost of benefits to employees and reduces benefits to offset company cost.

    Advice to Management

    Quality over Quantity. Be a Brand Leader not a Brand Killer. Create product demand by creating consumer demand.
