Pros

Unilever employees are down to earth, and actually care about the work they do. Overall, the company stresses ethics, and tries to make the workplace feel small in your individual responsibilities, but yet linked to a huge multinational resource.

Cons

Some of the work I was assigned was routine, and not the most challenging. Additionally, I felt like there were not many outlets for new ideas.

Advice to Management

Give more challenging projects, and more responsibility to younger employees. Also, encourage new ideas and creativity, and create an environment where learning and problem solving is the norm.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    For junir people / young graduates interested in marketing of FMCG, this is one of the best places to get experience.

    Cons

    Short-term (quaterly or even monthly) decisions driven by recent business performance over-rule the yearly strategy led by consumer preferences. Complex decision taking, alwyas shared reposnsibility among a group of people (even on senior levels0 makes decision takign slow. Lack of knowledge transfer (whena person changes job, the knwoledge experties leaves with him/her)

    Advice to Management

    Stimulate slower rotation of people (at least 3 year on a job, also for maketign) woudl be a benefit.
