Great place to start a career, great training, lack of upward mobility

Associate Finance Manager (Former Employee)
Englewood Cliffs, NJ (US)

I worked at Unilever PLC

Pros- Great training opportunities
- Looks good on a resume
-They understand that people are career switchers
-Laid back environment - can work from home, wear jeans everyday
-Subsidized food from cafeteria
-Shuttle from NYC to work (although it is a little pricey)
-Great 401K

Cons- Pay - base pay and bonus are not competitive
-Jobs keep getting larger - every reorg consolidates two jobs into one without a pay increase
- No opportunity to have direct reports until you become a mananger
-Manager positions constantly being eliminated, limiting upward mobility
- Takes too long to get promoted
-Work experience before business school not counted when looking at upward mobility/promotions.

Advice to Senior ManagementLots of WL1s are jumping ship...do something about promotional opportunities.
