"My love of Unilever is in part the luck I’ve had with great bosses (including my current) and the ease of organic networking opportunities. "

"I started working at Unilever when I was a relatively new mom, the line manager was extremely flexible with me and my schedule. When my daughter's preschool was only 2 hours a day, I was able to work from home for the entire year to accommodate my daughter's schedule. This was a game changer for my work-life balance. I have never felt as if I have to choose between work and home at Unilever. "

"Unilever cares about the environment and social justice issues which is wonderful! Unilever has a longer paternal leave policy than most companies and no stigma attached to taking the full time off. "
"We have so many Business Resource Groups to support women- GALvanize, Women Advancing Manufacturing (WAM), NEW U- Network of Executive Women @ Unilever, United Parents! All of these groups help us stay connected, support networking, and promote friendship in the office!"
"Unilever really puts diversity at the heart of what we do. Not just by having very strong Business Resource Groups but by walking the talk in all levels and having tangible actions and plans for a better workplace and career plans for women"
"Unilever is an amazing organization, and they truly walk the talk when it comes to advancement of women! I am in a factory location and see the programs translate here too, in an area traditionally geared toward men. "

"Expect to work long hours and put in a ton of work and then get passed over by a UFLP for a manager role."

"There is flexibility and support for women but it's hard to move up in the company without giving a lot of that up. I'd also add the company is struggling to accept women who have stereotypically masculine leadership styles."

"The benefits are okay, but in terms of the flexibility with working at home, that only works if you have a salary position. "

"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. "

"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."
"Male dominated leadership. Not the friendliest atmosphere. I got a warning for having too many doctors appointments when i wad pregnant. Left the company before giving birth"
"Company does not think family should come first. You should be able to rearrange your life at a drop of a hat to work more hours. Lots of over time and working short staffed."
"Some days it could be bad management does not treat generally works the same"
"The company gives great benefits for maternity leave. They take great consideration of you in terms of family emergencies. You're overall treated fairly assuming management isn't female and rather take advice from a male coworker with less experience, then I guess it's fair."
"only the moneys good"
"While the company is supportive of women, a lot of the women in senior leadership roles have husbands/partners who have very flexible careers. It's not super easy for dual income families. Most of the senior leaders have worked abroad, as well, which is very tricky to navigate when balancing two careers. Maternity leave policies are good but not great and there is no on-site day care despite employees asking time and again."
"lots of females in the bottom ranks, far fewer at the top."
"Great place to start your career."
"Because of the agile work atmosphere you are able to balance between your responsibilities with family and work."
"I have been employed for 3 years. They offer good insurance, paid vacation, 401K, and a discount in factory company store. Im happy with my job, it is very clean and theres not real hard work for the pay in this area, it is actually good. They recognize 8 paid holidays although good Friday or eater is not one of them. The company is involved in many non profit organizations to help the fight against world hunger, relay for life and some others. They provide many hair products at this location. It is a international global company."
