It was great place to work, learn and grow. The people I worked with at Unilever were great people and Unilever had a wonderful way of bringing us together to collaborate and deliver results. At times it could be very challenging and there was a high level of pressure to deliver as the business is very results driven. It is a large corporate company and some decisions did not filter down to lower levels however considering the size of the business Unilever still did a great job of transparency and this made you feel comfortable with your job security and that of your teams. This bread great culture I would recommend it to anyone who is considering it.

HR (Former Employee) - Durban
This company can be great again if only Management will change their style. It is super hierarchical and levels in the org matter, the management style is based on fear and HR is the worst place to be at as they do not correct bad behavior or lead by example! You are not promoted for hard work, but for agreeing to all the bad decisions leadership make. The culture used to be admired, now it is a rut.
Pros
Promotional discount on Unilever products
Cons
Pathetic Management style

Global Mobility (Former Employee) - Durban, KwaZulu-Natal
The core values of the company and senior management are awesome. Problem is WL2 management in Durban Head Office in Global Mobility department. They tend to sweep lots of things under the carpet, causing bad reputation for the company
