Great place to get a 2-4 yr foundation then move on to a better environment/ advancement -- just like any big CPG firm.

Pros

Top CPG company; a lot of brands; great training; easy to go into other marketing afterward

Cons

Big, get lost in the shuffle. Some roles much more work than others.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote and support the star talent more. Work out better balance of responsibilities. Value an MBA more. Promote where due in terms of work product not just friends with everyone.

    Pros

    Large diverse company with opportunity to interact with people all over the globe. Good life/work balance. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive however I suppose the benefits make up for it somewhat. Seems to be many different levels of upper management. Can get lost since it's such a large organization. Seems things change for the sake of change recently. Needs deep total rework of company to remain competitive in its field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in the employees

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment, but very professional at finishing their work. Easily attracts best talent out of University and have a good sense of global recruiting. Leverage of being a multinational offers great opportunities for development. Big push to move East and therefore it would help if you would be interested to at least spend 2-3 years somewhere in the East (China/India). Work/life balance is excellent, and especially in the UK, nice holiday allowance (5 weeks).

    Cons

    Way too big -- difficult to make a big impact. Bureaucratic at times and so can get sometimes stuffy for young people as there is not great support for new ideas or moving things quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support for new R&D structure
