I have been working at Unilever full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of contacts made but as soon as you get to a certain level of pay you get cut for cheaper workers. So it is good for contacts

Cons

Been here 5 years. Have had 6 bosses and have been thru 3 downsizing the company reorganizes every 5 or so months in some regards.. Be very careful sounds good but on Foodservice it is defentily a stepchild to retail Worst insurance in the industry and in my role I was told the only way to move up would be to leave. Travel 30% turned out to be 90 and I am never home almost lost family over it. Senior management changes every 5 years as they are based out of the country and they have to move back so Europe .. So no constant leadership or vison

    I worked at Unilever full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are smart and the support functions - consumer research, brand finance, etc mean you can focus on marketing. 4 1/2 stars

    Cons

    They keep consolidating roles at the top so that if you ever hope to move up to the top - and I just mean Director and above - you better plan on being there a LONG time! 2 stars

    Advice to Management

    Provide training to everyone who manage people. The level of inconsistency and ability of people to manage other people was at times appalling.
