    I worked at Unilever full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Unilever is a sophisticated global consumer goods marketing company that has maintained its market position successfully for many decades and provides equal opportunity to all genders.

    Cons

    Slow to disrupt/ adapt and modify its methods to enter new markets - somewhat conservative in its approach and develop new market areas.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the flow and adopt a more adventurous and disruptive strategy to open up new market opportunities. Be prepared to fail more often and to try again

    Pros

    Very dynamic and competitive industry so you learn a lot

    Cons

    Attrition is quite high since a lot of companies pirate employees especially now with the Kraft Heinz attempt.

    Pros

    Fun people to work with. Lots of opportunity for growth , good structure. A good first job

    Cons

    Too competitive and too much pressure on the sales team. Very marketing driven company - not so much innovation

    Advice to Management

    You take good care of your brands but there isn't anything new with it.. P&G and Loreal will pass you by eventually.

    I worked at Unilever (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Nice facility

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't listen to the people on the floor. They see a problem and armchair quarterback an idea and shove it down your throat. If you do it and it fails, then its more work and frustration on you. If you challenge them and hold your ground with your solution, then you have a bad attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your skilled mechanics and quit running off them off. Skilled help is hard to come by

    I worked at Unilever as an intern

    Pros

    I interned at CT. I got to work on real projects that actually matter, which is great for an intern.

    Cons

    Would be better if we get to choose what team we want to be put on, or at least rate our preferences.
