    Pros

    Great people and great environment that actually has HR for HR! Instead of always giving to others, HR folks actually get something back. Great acknowledgement and recognition. Compensated for great ideas and innovative thinking. Allows freedom within a framework. NO MICROMANAGING! Competitve and collaborative environment. My peers want to experience success together. Best company I ever worked for. Commitment to diversity of thought, gender, race, sexual orientation and experiences.

    Cons

    Ask me on another few years. Right now.....it is an ideal environment for middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being inclusive and innovative.

    I worked at Unilever full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Company truly cares and invests both time and resource to develop employees
    -Encourages employees to step out of their comfort zone and take on more responsibilities
    -Company is trying to drive diversity and manage a good male: female manager ratio across functions

    Cons

    - Career progression is still slower for women; top level management is mostly composed of male managers

    Advice to Management

    Ensure more women are promoted to mid and top level management especially in developing countries such as Bangladesh where the presence of women in senior level management is almost non-existent

    Pros

    This is a great for development. You get to grow in your career and get better at the things you love. You also get to see the world, or get the world to see you.

    Cons

    Lots of change happens in this organisation. You have to be prepared to change the spare wheel while the car is moving. You have to change and reinvent yourself all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Globalisation is great, but it comes with lots of impact for smaller countries. Get better at improving diversity through concerted effort to bring in employees from forgotten countries.

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

    Pros

    Unilever is a company which provides great learning environment. It has always been value driven and that is what differentiates it from many other companies. I really appreciated transparency, professionalism and how people are been treated.

    Cons

    When you work in a small country, sometimes you cannot always feel greatness of the company. I feel humanity, which has always been in company's roots, has been lost a bit; company easily lets it best people go.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of its best people, no matter if they belong to big or small operational company.
