Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee) –  toronto8 September 2014
structured place to work with good support from management. Unilever will always work to develop and grow your skills. Pitfalls are the competitive nature of employees there most often at the expense of company goals.

Poor work environment
Maintenance Electrician/Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Simcoe, ON23 July 2014
Could be a great place but the environment has apparently gone down hill since Unilever bought the little ice cream plant. The plant may not be around for too much longer according to the current manager.

operator (Current Employee) –  Simcoe Ontario27 March 2014
Management has a cut throat mentality. Employees are never appreciated as well as this facility gives new meaning to the term "Lean Manufacturing" Packers are treated the worse as they are pushed harder and faster until they get hurt and then made to feel like they have done something wrong. Never report an accident because that could cost you your ...

Lipton Canada (Unilever) was a great place to work!
Lead project developer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 February 2014
Lipton fostered personal skills as well as providing Time Management training and Project Management training.

I was encouraged and rewarded with cash bonuses to meet project deadlines on time and under budget.

The CFO of Lipton Canada had an amazing memory. He could have one conversation with you, and remember the details of that conversation, almost word-for-word, as well as who was in your family and how old they were, months or years later!

Very comfortable place to work with a great view of Bloor St. in Toronto!
Pros
Excellent work environment, with great pay and bonuses.
Cons
None that I can think of at this time.
