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

    Pros

    Company with a real vision of sustainability and values at the core of the business. Working hard to re-invent and become more nimble.

    Cons

    A huge company with all the complexity and politics you would expect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to "break the mold", but think also about the leaders you employ to break it. The same English and Dutch "club" that got us here may not be the right ones to get us to the next level.
