poor processes improvement strategy, issues are always blamed on people other than actually looking at the process.

Advice to Management

    I worked at Unilever full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits & compensation package. Strong brands. Emphasis on teams.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy. Sloth culture- nothing gets done. Decisions made that are counter to growth and common sense. Not sure this division of the company will exist in 18-24 months. Rumors abound that Unilever is exiting the food business and selling off the brands.

    Roadblocks to successfully winning business make it more attractive to hang in the home office than pursue customers. And seriously, with a portfolio of over 500 items, why would they limit what we can sell based upon our job title?

    Recent structural changes are disconcerting and morale is lower than Ive seen in more than 15 years.

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

    Pros

    Big company, lots of opportunity if you are flexible and can move around the world. Great entry level job, but then get out by the time you make it to manager. Nice sustainability agenda.

    Cons

    Zero growth in NJ. Less upper management roles every year. Downsize and restructuring is the norm. Work life balance is poor. Leadership does not deliver. Leadership is encouraging an up or out mentality... meaning if you are not promoted in a couple years, you will be let go.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful what you wish for as you'll be losing a lot of your top talent.
