The organizational structure and culture is superb, it’s only problem it’s the evolution of ways of production, where lot of production is getting automated and employees are losing jobs, you cannot really say you have secured job more especially if you’re on the floor...overall it’s has reasonable salaries with better benefits

Requires strong individual drive. Lacks experienced managers. Lacks structure and defined job roles and tasks. The company macro culture is not filtered through to ground floor.
Pros
Job security, benifits

Little recognition

They typical day i encountered was when the line i was working at was broken and i was asked to assist to the other line which i was not given work training. That gave me an opportunity to learn abroad about the company and never relay on working on the same position. The management are the great leaders and understands that communication is the key in the workplace. The hardest part of the job is when we can not deliver the target due to the machine problem .e.g Brian Leakage etc. The most enjoyable part of the job was on production day where management come to the factory and work with us, and we become their management.
Pros
free launches and trips

working conditions were not good in peak seasons. We were always working under pressure because the demand was very high in peak seasons. Sometimes they would bring tons of water to wastewater treatment plant and expect you as an operator to monitor the flow of water into the plant and when there is an overflow because of tons of water brought into the plant, they would come and blame you, but it was really a nice experience because i was adapting to work under pressure.
Pros
There were no benefits for temporary workers.
Cons
working conditions were very bad on peak season.

I started working at Unilever from 1992/06/04 to 2015/12/31,i enjoyed my stay at unilever with no regret,i enjoyed every moment being there until i got retrenched.I worked as a Receiving and Dispatching clerk and moved to operation as a universal operator/team leader and i was involved in many activities due to my flexibility e.g safety rap,first aider and fire fighting within the department,i got an Oscar award for that. I was having good relationship with my managers and also the team that i'm working with were good to me because i'm a team player and a good leader.The hardest part with my job is that its a physical job it needs your strength and focus and the most enjoyable part is that meeting our given target on daily basis and what i have learn is that team work and flexibility with the team is the most remarkable thing you can ever achieve.

My area of work is very clean and safe to work in not only for me but also to other employees.It is very good when you we after our targets and you will always want to beat the line record/ shift record, monthly record and year record, We do general maintenance and machine change overs and repairs on the line. i ve learn that you have to stick to production plan in order to meet the demand and lowering the cost. Management are not very good when coming to communication and can divide work for their own benefit. My co-workers very good in information sharing Setting high target for production when their is no or less maintenance on equipment Being a Health and Safety Representative Officer
Pros
vouchers and discount at staff shop
Cons
long hours, environment not healthy in a long run
