    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 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.

  4. "Maintenance Techician"

    Former Employee - Maintenance Technician in Covington, TN

    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Culture that cares about people growth and development

    - Many iconic brands to work on
    - Strong culture of "giving back" to the community

    - Very competitive intern program with limited number of offers
    - Heart of the business lies in the Jersey office - limited opportunities elsewhere
    - Big company negatives, such as being a more "anonymous" place to work (due to sheer size) and beauracracy
