Does Unilever offer sponsored degrees?

Pros

Flexible work schedule, remote work available, tuition reimbursement program and IVF benefits

Cons

Most of the managers are not good people managers they are just smart and know how to play politics and get promoted. Do your job for about 3 years then exit the company. There's no real room for growth here. Also, for such a large company you would think they would have better health insurance coverage. Cigna barely covers the basic and it is expensive.

Advice to Management

Select people to become hiring managers that don't have biases and provide better health insurance coverage to your employees instead of cost cutting with Cigna.

Does Unilever offer a retirement plan?

Pros

Good benefits - medical, dental, 401k match, what once was a pension is gone. Still a strong sense of culture, socially and environmentally conscious company

Cons

Changes in corporate structure, gigantic global amounts of red tape, commoditization of pretty much everything, layoffs on scheduled basis, pandering to stockholders at expense of loyal employees

Advice to Management

Take care of loyal employees, listen more direct less, continue with work life balance, walk the talk - cost cutting is not just for the workers

Good benefits - medical, dental, 401k match, what once was a pension is gone.

Does Unilever offer relocation assistance?

Pros

Corporate company with corporate benefits Relocation package if moving from different country Flexible working

Cons

I was relocated for a job that didn’t exist Left a great job to join what I thought was a good role at Unilever to be told 2 weeks before joining that the role had changed and I no longer had a team. No one seemed to take my concerns seriously and despite me moving country for a job. It was a big mistake for me and has caused a blip on my otherwise perfect CV The company is slow and lacks innovation. People get promotions based on networking and not for good work. Would not recommend for top talent in a senior position from an external company. You only do well at unilever if you have been there all you your career

Advice to Management

If you are going to employ talent at Director level, do not change the job before they start the role. It’s completely unethical
