Excellent Benifits
Line Tech (Current Employee), Covington, TNMay 28, 2015
Pros: free icecream, ecxellent pay and benefits
Cons: long commute, work hours
Over all, this is a good place to work. It is hard on single mothers and anybody that has a family just because of the work hours. I am in search of a new job because of the distance i have to drive there and the work hours. The pay is excellent.

I loved the career with great pay and benefits, but the hours were long.
Maint. Technician (Former Employee), Covington, TNMay 25, 2015
Pros: Free Ice Cream
Cons: N/A
The hardest part was the stress amounts you received at times, and we were always shorthanded. I loved the job with long hours at times, with time off for your life at home also. Just wished it had been closer to home. It is a very great place to work with a lot of things to learn and expand with. Great pay and benefits also.

CIP Sanitation Specialist / Freezer Operator (Former Employee), Clearwater, FLMay 22, 2015
Pros: free lunches, tons of overtime
Cons: plant closed
Great place to work, very family orientated. A few of my family members worked here for 20 plus years. You worked long and hard sometimes but were giving plenty of breaks and free lunches all the time. Long hours and long work week for 3rd shift.

Problems start at the Top
Sales force Unionize to confront Co. (Former Employee), New York, NYMay 12, 2015
Pros: Big Consumer marketing firm with Huge Marketing Budget
Cons: Huge failure rate for new product introductions from the 60;s through the 70's
Meet sales Reps and make calls on many different classes of trade.

Management had a " Cavalier Attitude" to hiring Sales Reps. One was hired before I on-boarded with the firm in Wantaugh ,L.I.
Then he was assigned to Cover Fairfield County, CT and Westchester County outside NYC. It generally took him 2 hours in the morning before he reached his first call and 2 hours at the end of the day in the evening to get home. He burned out quickly.

Management had a " Cavalier Attitude" to attending meetings on time. Often meetings were scheduled at the office for 8;30 AM and the Manager would stroll in at 10 to 10:30 AM saying it was traffic.
We all faced the same traffic.

The hardest part of the job was competing with top brands like Crest from Proctor and Gamble and Colgate. These were well established brands and had consistent advertising and marketing support on TV . Lever did not support these brands and they died on the vine and were sold to Arm & Hammer. After many new product failures Lever learned that the best way to build a #1 brand name was to BUY it and they did a great purchase of Chesborough-Ponds after I left the firm.

Selling and maintaining placement of any product line in a grocery store/chain is like going to war every day. If your products are not supported by a strong marketing program as well as well trained and staffed sales force the products will not survive over the long term as viable inventory items in the trade.

The Sales Reps that I worked with at Unilever were all great and very hard working people. The Management on the other hand thought that the most important part of the day was lunch.
Need I say more..

Its been a long time since I was at Lever and the key items that I sold have all been sold to other companies. So things must be improving there.

The opportunities given in the Unilever Future Leaders program are excellent. Unilever gives it's future leaders the ability to develop both breadth and depth within their preferred career path.

A very professional, relaxed working environment.
Temporary Laboratory Technician (Former Employee), Trumbull, CTMay 6, 2015
Pros: Relaxed environment, coffee and tea available for employees, company store
Cons: needs more diversity
Unilever was a great company to work for and I would love the opportunity to work for them again. My days were mostly relaxed. I had a routine and sometimes it was good to detour from that but the routine was nice to have because I always had something to do. I learned how to use various instruments and my coworkers were all very helpful and inclusive. The hardest part of the job was probably remembering what each component's role was in the batch preparations but that was also the most enjoyable part for me. I like challenges and it was great to be able to participate in this research. I also enjoyed the fact that this company manufactures so many popular products, some of which i use on a daily basis.

Customer Brand Manager (Current Employee), United StatesApril 29, 2015
Pros: Good People, great heritage, lots of resources.
Cons: Leadership, bureaucracy, paralysis by analysis
Work-life balance here can certainly be tough if you allow it to be with many recent cuts in head count and no reductions in work. Diversity in terms of traditional demographics is fantastic but it often comes at the expense of talent and diversity of thought/leadership is lacking.

I have been treated well over my time here and over-all this is a good company that is having a tough time culturally right now.

Cons: Unrealistic expectations, no work life balance
I learned a lot about Logistics and business here. It is a great place to start out. The pay is unmatched. The benefits package and 401K are out of this world with a great stock package. However, work life balance is non existent.
