I have been working at Unilever full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

You design your individual career map/growth plan

Cons

Medium rate compensation for a strong performance culture

Advice to Management

Linking compensation with performance does not translate in actual execution of rewards granted. High performers are not recognized as they should in theory...the end of year payouts are more of a financial exercise than they are a merit reward

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

    Pros

    One of the best marketing companies - lots to learn, vast opportunities due to operating in many categories

    Cons

    Must fight to be noticed. Good talent must compensate for incompetent subordinates with no accountabiliy.

    Advice to Management

    Incent and hold managers accountable for performance and growth of employees that report to them ; Make all levels accountable for the same competitive results as marketing

    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.
