Overall Reviews at Unilever
Brand Manager | Durban, KwaZulu-Natal | 18 Jan 2020
Great culture and learning/developing environment
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.
ProsStaff discounts on products. Medical aid benefits. Pension fund benefits. Performance bonus
ConsFlexible working hours. Stagnant growth (bottle neck for progression opportunities)

Hoping for a permanent position
Excellent company to work for. Hoping to be permanent. Cause when they write the job description they say you become permanent after 3mnths. But otherwise its a fast paced working environment.

Productive and fun workplace
a lot of experience is gained, most enjoyable part is that you can influence profitability and market share, long hours are put in.

Interactive and productive work place
Unilever is an interactive work-place, which has a vibrant culture. It promotes personal growth and development not only in the company but on a personal level as well and strives to create a work life balance, they have many online learning programmes and trainings. I've also had the privilage of being exposed to QA and micro at the Indonsa factory and have learned about raw material management from their perspective and their role in the business in addition to their interaction with us. There is definatley pressure but I find it to be managable and it keeps one on thier toes. I've also learned to communicate with diverse people and respect different views and opinions as well as maintaining professional relationships

Great Organization and Culture
I have learnt alot in my role at Unilever and have benefited from many opportunities that have been afforded to me. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with global brands and being at the forefront of brand and product innovation. The most challenging part has to be the processes which can become tedious and slow down momentum and team performance.
Prosgreat benefits, focus on company performance as well as individual attention
