How are flexible working hours at Unilever?

Pros

Great flexibility in terms of working hours, allow to work from home

Cons

Very local culture with stubborn and narrow minded management. Unilever was a good company with great culture probably 10 years ago but the mindsets of senior management didn’t change since then, resulting in the leaders leading the company in an old-fashioned way (micro-management, do not reward performing staff with promotion and pay increment, instead they add extra responsibilities to ‘give new exposure’ etc.) They can’t accept new ideas and new management styles and that’s why the people who can survive are trainees they train themselves and the ones that left then rehired.

Advice to Management

Be more open minded and needs a complete cultural change

Great flexibility in terms of working hours, allow to work from home
