    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Unilever full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Allows creativity in using Excel formulas - gives room to implement new changes if you find a way to do so

    Cons

    - files and names are very disorganized - no one truly knows how things were once created and why - specific documentations are outdated and misleading, resulting in extremely long onboarding time - unreasonable requests from business partners that could have eliminated hours of trouble if was done one level higher in 30 minutes

    Advice to Management

    Make sure unnecessary complication between employees with other employee and employees with systems are reduced to minimal.
