    I worked at Unilever PLC

    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

    Cons

    Once you pitch your tent with this company, the likelihood of leaving for other company is very slim.

    Implement and sustain a robust succession plan for the next generation of leaders.
