I have been working at Unilever full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible Working Environment (if you need to work from home in the middle of the week to go to the doctor for example, it's fine). As long as you get your work done, people don't tend to care when you leave the office etc.

Easy access from NYC with use of company shuttle (you pay for it but it's minimal)

Company truly believes and lives it's motto around purpose and sustainability

Ability to work across multiple categories

Top notch research and data capabilities. Although there are a lot of processes, there is a rarely a function or job that doesn't have built in tools to help you succeed

Cons

Pay growth year of year is minimal. Only way to get a good salary increase is to get promoted and this can be hard moving up levels depending on what stage of the year the company is in.

Advice to Management

Although you need to focus on hitting your Wall Street numbers (especially post Kraft-Heinz), refocus back on the long term with people management. Especially when you look to delay promotions around times of profit crunches.
