    I have been working at Unilever PLC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a very collaborative environment where you views are valued and taken into account at all levels. The employees are all highly driven but it is not a cut throat place to work compared to some other large companies. Work life balance is as good or bad as you make it and opportunities to move function/location are always there if you ask and push for them.

    Cons

    Career progression - in terms of visible obvious routes are totally non-existent and there is no sign of this changing. Furthermore the PDP system as utilised in other FTSE 100 companies is flawed and de-motivates far more than it drives "performance culture".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a transparent career progression for non-management and management alike (as per your competitors) as this will really drive the performance culture you seek. Not a forced distribution of performance with the current PDP system.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work in this role. I gave what I believed was a compelling question stating the learning opportunities and the interaction with other areas of the firm, but the interviewer wasn't satisfied at all. I believe that this question needs to thought through carefully and have a very good answer ready.   Answer Question
