    "Put People First is one of the Pillars of Unilever, unfortunately not practiced in the real work setting"

    I have been working at Unilever full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Global company, you own managing the brand from day 1 and you make recommendations that you can see in practice immediately

    Cons

    NO WORK-LIFE BALANCE, especially in the personal care categories. You are expected to work constantly and there is no such thing as vacation or sick time. Takes 4-5 years to be promoted when after 2-3 years, almost all ABMs are ready to be managers. Major disconnect between Global and Regional teams

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to get to know your employees and put the Compass in practice. If employees felt appreciated for their 16 hour work days, then not so many people would be running out the door like they currently are
