Do people talk about their financial situations at Unilever?

Pros

Great benefits, competitive competitive, very strong company values, mission and vision. Really applied diversity and inclusion to it process and is attempting (with success) to influence the world of business.

Cons

False sense of belonging; it s and extremely hierarchical company and mainly white and privileged individuals, usually formed by the trainee program (that lasts 4 years). The promotion and professinal growth is confusing and theres normally no way for you to keep doing your job if you want to grow at Unilver. I felt extremmly frustrted working there and that caused a series of psycological damages to me.

Advice to Management

You guys aare running a messy and hihgly frustrating compnay, where the purposefulness of your brands is not cutting off. Think of how your going to guarantee your employees are psychologically safe and how you will build a sustainable business from there. Stop doing things just for show.

How is race or ethnicity talked about at Unilever?

Pros

Beautiful workspace, free ice cream, great perks, some people are genuinely good people (though many of the best have left)

Cons

The leadership is horrible! They talk about "Every Voice Matters" but it's totally fake from the top down. They don't care about diversity and inclusion - it's all a numbers game. I honestly believe some of them are sociopaths, especially in HR and Legal. I personally witnessed truly abhorrent behavior and when several people complained to the legal department, they did nothing except cover it up. Shameful! 80+ hour work weeks with no relief, including weekends and holidays; very few people are set up for success. Leadership says they will help you if you come to them, but when you come to them, they do nothing except penalize you. Much of the work is ego-driven and has no value. There's a reason the rate of people of color leaving is so high - the Diversity & Inclusion program is a total joke. Favoritism is rampant. Bias runs unchecked.

Advice to Management

You need to get rid of everyone in leadership and start all over again, especially in legal and HR. You should take a hard look at the ethical violation complaints - there is a recurring theme. The fact that the people who are the subjects of the complaints are still there while the people who complained about them have all been fired, forced out, or voluntarily left..... no retaliation policy, huh? You need to completely revamp your Diversity and Inclusion program and bring in actual experts who care, not people trying to satisfy their ego and fulfill their own ambitions. It's disgusting and transparent.
