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

Pros

Great work community, good location if you have a family, access to many health and social benefits, and have access to some of the brightest minds you'll ever meet.

Cons

Location not so ideal for young professionals, often get that "lost in crowd" feeling, the company is so large you constantly don't know who to contact for services or questions in your daily work, and training for certain functions is almost non-existent.

Advice to Management

Have your employees engage more creatively as there needs to be more passion in the work place (face-to-face, no more agile or sharepoint). There are a lot of people with great ideas and no way to share them.

    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
