    I have been working at Unilever full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Unilever Sustainable Living Plan. You can get involved in other sustainability initiatives outside of your normal job role. There is a lot of training and support. Great people to work with, positive culture.

    Cons

    The pay isn't as good compared to some competitors but other benefits, e.g. agile working, parental leave policy, Unilever rewards, make up for it. Not that much travel for the lower work levels, some may see that as a pro.

    I have been working at Unilever full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Company reputation. Social and environmental standing.

    Cons

    Leadership. Pressure on staff. Lack of required investment. Accelerated off shoring of skilled headcount.

    Advice to Management

    To a certain extent working within UL for the last 12 months has felt like living with Austerity. Cost savings have become a priority over delivery of service and staff well being. Management need to address resourcing issues from top to bottom to alleviate stress levels and pressure on remaining employees. Basically, you can't do your job without the necessary resources, and this is now more apparent than ever.
