Reviews:

“Great big lumbering FMCG giant”

Good training, people management processes, support for education and learning. Incredibly good at brand management. Solid, salt of the earth ops and manufacturing types. Make stuff you use every day across foods, ice cream, laundry etc.

Slow, lumbering beast. Massive budgeting cycles. Too many co-workers doing the minimum to get by or people who work there for 10+ years and get comfortable.

Port Sunlight - the village they built for their workforce!

“So far, so good!”

Fantastic variety in terms of training and a good amount of responsibility is given to you from the offset. Good potential to network and make good contacts. Graduates can be asked to relocate every 6 months which can be rewarding. There is a company shop offering good discounts. The working environment is very pleasant, people are open and friendly and they are also open to flexible working scheme such as being able to work from home. There are plenty of opportunities to progress. There are lots of opportunities to network with more senior members.

Having to relocate every 6 months can be a negative for some graduates in terms of practicality ie. finding somewhere to live etc. Although if you are relocated abroad this is taken care of for you.

Working hours can vary on a daily basis.

“Very large and successful organization”

Pros: Unilever is a huge organisation with multiple extremely successful products. It makes one proud to work for such a well known company. The company supports many charities as well. There is a lot of employee benefits such as discounted canteen food, a staff shop and a very nice building to work in.

Cons: Sometimes you feel like just a number, especially when it comes to staff communications etc. This is mainly due to the huge number of employees. The salary is not very high. It takes quite a long time to get promoted.

Unusual thing: There are a lot of long-term employees at Unilever. Some of them have been here for over thirty years!

“Professional, the work is interesting, clarity in career development lacking”

Really good diversity policity and multi-cultural backgrounds in evidence in the organisation Products are brilliants Really professional approach to business Meaty projects and tasks that you can get your teeth into, fulfilling Decent compensation

Senior management do not listen to staff as they are too busy on the soapbox of their own reasons, rationales and wherefores Needs to be a proper talent management process put in place to enable staff to see a progression path and to forward plan for it Bureaucratic processes, very slow Top management need to see the wood for the trees, too busy managing the numbers and figures to be strategic and in touch with the real issues of the business
