    Advice to Management

    People are bleeding blue, the heart of this business is being lost somewhere. Recognize the talent that is walking out the door.

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

    Pros

    Great brand name company with a strong reputation, great/nice people to work with, flexible hours that are very accommodating of life needs, strong brands that offer a great learning opportunity

    Cons

    offices located in NJ/hard to get to, size of the company means projects often move slowly, accountability sometimes difficult because process and division of labor means no one ever owns an entire chain of responsibility (e.g., when experiencing supply chain issues with a new product launch, no one on either the brand or supply chain teams was able to determine what the cause was and no one was necessarily empowered to step up)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to give employees opportunities across different parts of the business. Restructuring efforts should continue to focus on enabling business to be more nimble and give more ownership to individuals

  7. "Not Bad"

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Unilever full-time

    Pros

    The company is very large, as it owns various brands worldwide. There is opportunity to grow depending on your upper management. Discounts on brands they own, profit sharing...etc.

    Cons

    Some of the management will act as if they are listening, but will totally ignore your concern unless it affects them directly. More sick days and less targeting of certain employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more..they are the front line of your company.

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

    Pros

    Big organization with lots of resources to innovate. Hard-working, driven people wanting to make a difference or advance up the career ladder. Getting faster at innovating.

    Cons

    Can be highly process driven. Using a lot of quant research to validate/kill new ideas. Trying to do the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. They're in New Jersey, though offices have been refurbished and are quite contemporary compared to before.
