Promotions are very rare which means salary is rarely going to increase. Promotions are usually given to international employees.
Great environment, family friendly but negotiate your pay coming in because it will not move much, and be prepared with a strong career plan if you want to move up the ranks especially if you have not been recruited from their preferred list of big name schools.
if you want to stay at a place for a long time with the same title and pay unilever is for you.
Flexible work arrangement but limited career opportunities. Very difficult to move up.
It's an amazing place for women to work - the maternity leave is fantastic and the culture is very supportive and flexible for families.
They recently have moved to a more agile work environment that encourages working remotely.
In their own words they have a women problem. There are more women than men at the entry level but those percentages shift dramatically with every level. While the environment is intellectually stimulating and people are very pleasant, it is extremely difficult to get promoted and will likely take an overseas secondment to make it happen. Around 2011 they started a program to specifically encourage and develop female talent. It was excellent and really encouraged me to take charge of my career (and look elsewhere for my next).
Already stated my opinion on this topic under the earlier question. While my input is based on my experience in a single department, for less than a year, I found that lower level employees were mainly young, just out of college and HAD TO work long hours (in the office and then from home) under great pressure. Taking time off had consequences not only for the individual employee, but for a whole group whose members had to cover for each other - meaning, if one was out for a day, the backup person had to COMPLETE the job functions of two people what, in some cases, was impossible. This created great stress and low moral in the department. Also, found very little effective communication between groups/departments in spite of hundreds of unnecessary e-mails each day. This signals a defensive, company-wide "just in case, just covering my basis" mentality. Very frustrating and time consuming, non value-adding activity.
There are a lot of women in the more junior roles, but fewer as you get to the top of the organization. The maternity leave policies in the US are better than what's legally required, but by no means generous - surprising for a company that is supposedly to progressive with regard to the advancement of women. It's a lot of talk about doing the right thing, but not as much action.
