I worked at Unilever PLC as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

The work atmosphere in the Trumbull, CT office was family oriented. People were always very friendly to one another and teams felt like families. As an intern, I was highly respected among all my coworkers. There is a lot of room to grow in the company too with the companies rotational program.

Cons

I was not a fan of the location in Trumbull, CT but that is personal preference.

    I have been working at Unilever PLC

    Pros

    True emphasis on sustainable growth - operating ethically will deliver improved sales
    Outstanding people and collaborative culture
    Genuine work/life balance achieved for most employees
    Wonderful brands that really do improve consumers' lives
    Good pay, based on good performance
    Still massive opportunities to grow in new markets and win share through innovation

    Cons

    Decision-making can be painfully slow - driven by consensus culture and obsession with keeping everyone happy and informed
    Product performance is not necessarily as good as competitors in some areas (laundry, some foods) and some ranges have become too flabby and indistinct
    Extraordinarily hierarchical - like the colonial civil service in some respects
    Not a business for mercurial minds and instinctive, creative spirits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A record-breaking year in 2012 and another in prospect for 2013 despite global downturn. The temptation must be to just carry on what we're doing right now. But we have to be faster, more imaginative and less bureacratic if we're to see off hungry competitors. We talk about it, but I don't see the people aroud me changing...
