Cut-throat competitive and very political
ABM (Former Employee) –  Toronto, Ontario, Canada27 March 2013
Pros:
Great downtown location
Fun and bright coloured "happy" office
Good opportunity to learn from inter agency and unilever organized events, activities, guest speakers, etc.
Opportunity to work from home if you need to
It will look good on your resume

Cons:
Individualistic vs collaborative work culture, more ABMs than brand manager positions, so there is cut throat competition to show off and make it to the favorites list
Poor management: favoritism, lack of coaching and clear expectations, no constructive feedback which inhibits your professional growth and development. Management does not make your success their success, you're pretty much on your own.
Large number of "mandatory" company meetings, events and activities, limiting the time to do your actual work.
Lower than average starting salary for this particular role
Pros
location, industry learning opportunities, work from home
Cons
not collaborative, poor management that limits your growth, lower than average salary

Machine Operator and Mix Flavour
Machine Operator, Mix Flavour (Former Employee) –  Simcoe, ON9 October 2012
An excellent job for a person my age but there is a large gap between what happens on the factory floor and what the supervisors believe can be done. At times there is a huge lack of communication between what the workers can do and what the supervisors think can be done. The managers need to have a better grasp of what the factory is capable of.
Pros
great pay, good co-workers
Cons
forced overtime, supervisors knowledge

Staff turn over is fast, job security is always a concern.
Quality Specialist (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON1 August 2012
10-12 hours of working is not uncommon and also there is no proper system of carry over for the next shift. Completing all the work before end of the shift is very demanding.
Pros
young co-workers keep you inspired
Cons
lack of time for family

Esprit d'équipe Unilever
Account Manager Unilever Canada (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC17 January 2016
J'ai travaillé moins de deux années chez Unilever. Je pensais jamais que j'aurais autant aimé visité des épiceries et des pharmacies. Quand on m'a promu responsable de comptes, j'ai demandé à mon patron s'il était possible de continuer un peu sur la route:)

Unilever a été une incroyable école. Lors des dernières 9 années, j'ai appliqué les apprentissages Unilever sur l'exécution en magasin à chacune de mes visites en magasin.

merci!
