Great place to get a 2-4 yr foundation then move on to a better environment/ advancement -- just like any big CPG firm.

Pros

Top CPG company; a lot of brands; great training; easy to go into other marketing afterward

Cons

Big, get lost in the shuffle. Some roles much more work than others.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote and support the star talent more. Work out better balance of responsibilities. Value an MBA more. Promote where due in terms of work product not just friends with everyone.

    Pros

    The people - there is a very strong community within the company and several of my colleagues are now friends of mine. The career advancement opportunities are very good, there is a clear career proposition and plenty of chances to prove yourself and to deliver real value and growth to the company. The work/life balance is excellent, managers are very good about letting you take time off/leave early if you need to. There are excellent opportunities to work abroad.

    Cons

    Compensation is claimed to be at a premium above market rate but isn't. Unilever can also be a bit 'soft' for some people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more transparent about the direction of the company instead of justifiying decisions made reterospectively.
