    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.

    Pros

    they used spend a ton on training and development. when employees start, they attend a three week course spreadout over the year in new york. It teaches you the fundamentals of marketing and you learn from some very bright people. Unilever has a traditional approach to marketing that gives you a solid foundation for your career. I'd highly recommend someone out of school working here or someone with an interest in marketing with no skills. However, leave after a few years because the balance at work is non existent and you can get way better paying jobs, better career progression elsewhere.

    Cons

    poor worklife balance in marketing, lack of recognition, senior management always a step behind the competition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to their employees and act on their concerns
