It was a great honor to work in such an environment. It presents the ideal work environment for any job role. Everyone who works there is disciplined and well behaved, professional and 100 % competent in whatever position they may hold. Everyday you will learn something new and everyone feels happy and are ready to help you succeed and grow. Everything is fair at Unilever.
Pros
You can trust the company; great employee benefits
Cons
I cant think of any

You had to do sales travel a lot working 6 days a week no day off had to work even December time i had a good relationship with the manager the most interesting part about the job is that we recieved commission for every sale that we did and there was a target that we had to reach the salary was good for someone who doesn't have a child

Unilever used to be known as an amazing place of work, with amazing benefits, but most of all, a place to really grow your career amongst vibrant, skilled individuals. However, this is no longer the case. Unilever is more about results than it is about it being for the people. A very disappointing time spent working here.

Unilever is the school of business marketing. The learning experience has been the best for me, coupled with the people and environment.
The culture allows you to embrace yourself but also pushed you to tap into your potential.
Pros
Staff discounts on products. Medical aid benefits. Pension fund benefits. Performance bonus
Cons
Flexible working hours. Stagnant growth (bottle neck for progression opportunities)

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

Great company to work for. Really takes care of their employees. Company that understands family time is important. No working outside of office hours. If you are based at head office there are so many other benefits over and above salary benefits

Unilever is still a good company to work for. Have had a wonderful time the first decade of my service there and then things started to be uneasy maybe because of SAs economic changes. As the time went things got worse when the constant job loses became a talk of the show and really affecting almost every department. It was really hectic everyone felt very much insecured. It has had a lot of job cuts and has done it in a professional manner and went the extra mile to ensure that whoever is affected gets an over and above severance pay. I'm at home now and do not regret any of my years spent at Unilever. Was my second home, the spirit of caring hovered and the feeling of belonging was high. I can go on and on about Unilever till dawn.
Pros
Unistore discounts
Cons
Delayed recognition for some. Salary descripancy for the same position
