Pros

The growth opportunity at Unilever is great. Career opportunity is based on performance and management is focused on career development.

Cons

Unilever can be somewhat beurocratic at times. The best people at Unilever are world class but the support outside of marketing can be spotty.

Advice to Management

My advice to management would be to learn to be more flexible and take calculaed risks. If you punish people for risks, they will stop taking them.

    Pros

    Money is good, benefits are good...but need to know how to treat their employees with respect.

    Cons

    Upper managment lets positon of power get out of hand, they brag of their ethics policy, but truthfully speaking, this company managment in the United States has no ethics and they treat their employees very poorly, take away their dignity and spit you out.

    Advice to Management

    Uk would be wise to pay more attention to UnileverOne in the United States, they give Unilever a bad reputation.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The work environment is very professional yet relaxed. Employees are intelligent and motivated to get work done well.

    The company has brands that span both Home Personal Care and Foods. Home Personal Care moved from Connecticut to New Jersey in 2008, so employees now have a better opportunity to move between the two areas to get a broader range of experience.

    It's a short commute from New York City or Eastern New Jersey suburbs, so it is very accessible for employees who desire to live in those areas.

    Cons

    The marketing department is saturated, so there is little upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Add a few more layers in the marketing organization so people can move up and feel as though there career is going somewhere. Stop removing positions to consolidate work - people are overwhelmed and it provides less opportunities for people who are ready to move up.
