I have been working at Unilever PLC full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The culture here is fantastic and its a great place to learn. Fantastic brands to work on and inspirational senior management.

Cons

compared to other FMCG companies of this size and smaller renumeration is significantly below average. Opportunities are good but progression is often limited by internal politics / not enough roles coming up

    Pros

    -Great people, interesting work on a large and international scale.
    -Sustainability is really part of what we do in nearly all things.

    Cons

    -In some areas of the business the org structure is very flat, so you cannot delegate or have the opportunity to manage teams. Its the matrix organisation at its best, so if you are a networker this is not really a contra indicator.
    -New people to the business may find it hard to intergrate, make sure you have a couple of 'buddies' to translate the acronyms and introduce the informal culture.
    -Bonus scheme for low and middle management a little disappointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more courageous with promotions.

    I have been working at Unilever PLC

    Pros

    Unilever is a very large global company and as a result there are a plethora of opportunities both in the UK and abroad.

    The Unilever culture is based around people. They understand stand that if they treat the employees right then they will get the success that they want.

    Cons

    Due to the size of Unilever, you can sometimes find yourself lost in such a huge organization. when in the UK business it is sometimes hard to think of the business as global, however my next role in brand development may help to change this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that the higher levels should get more traction with the Unilever graduates. It is the Unilever Future Leaders Program and therefore i believe meeting higher management at the start would provide inspriation and support for the future.
