Pros

The growth opportunity at Unilever is great. Career opportunity is based on performance and management is focused on career development.

Cons

Unilever can be somewhat beurocratic at times. The best people at Unilever are world class but the support outside of marketing can be spotty.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to management would be to learn to be more flexible and take calculaed risks. If you punish people for risks, they will stop taking them.

    Pros

    Unilever is father/mother of marketing so the opportunity to work in the marketing function is hugely attractive. As a brand manager you "own" the brand and coordinate the rest of the company to grow/protect it.

    Cons

    It's a massive global company, so connections to overseas colleagues was much less than I was expecting. Also the functions are in silo's so you are not expected to look beyond your function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Two changes should be assimilated quicker. 1) The role of private label and the threat from powerful retailers and 2) non traditional media (80% of marketing spend is still ATL)

    Pros

    It's a good learning place, 2nd largest consumer products company, with many global brands and teams.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, and top heavy. Similar to other large corporations, constant re-organizations and job changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More accountability, and greater transparency with re-organizational processes.
