    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent pay. Really good around vacations/PTOs.

    Cons

    Horrible structure (worst I have seen so far) and most experienced folks don't know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pinching pennies. You can only go so far with downsizing and sending jobs overseas. Become industry leader and command premium on your products.

    Great challenges and self rewarding. Wonderful workers who deliver quality. Education benefits are first rate when exercised.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, remote work available, tuition reimbursement program and IVF benefits

    Cons

    Most of the managers are not good people managers they are just smart and know how to play politics and get promoted. Do your job for about 3 years then exit the company. There's no real room for growth here. Also, for such a large company you would think they would have better health insurance coverage. Cigna barely covers the basic and it is expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Select people to become hiring managers that don't have biases and provide better health insurance coverage to your employees instead of cost cutting with Cigna.
