    I worked at Unilever

    Pros

    Felt supported by managers and co-workers in my role. Lots of opportunities for learning, and personal development. I felt I had meaningful projects to work on without excess pressure. Work life balance is great and the company is highly supportive of agile working methods.

    Cons

    Difficult to get projects moving quickly due to the company being so large.

    Cons

    not clear expectations, always changing your targets, too much pressure, too much stress, expecting you to solve all the problems that Unilever Canada face

  5. "Great experience to gain as an intern"

    4.0
    Customer Development Intern 

    I worked at Unilever for less than a year

    Pros

    Dynamic environment that allowed intern to be exposed to various workplace challenges. Given large amount of responsibility and autonomy while working on meaningful projects that could impact the business.

    Cons

    Lack formal on boarding and limited interaction between co-ops in different positions. Work from home made it difficult at times to build relationships.

    I worked at Unilever for more than a year

    Pros

    The people at Unilever are fantastic. Managers mostly keep to themselves and leave room for all employees to grow.

    Cons

    While at Unilever I felt that i was given very little guidance. Although this was good for my growth at times, it became hampering when small problems took large portions of my time just due to a lack of knowledge or experience.
