Applied Food Microbiologist (Intern) (Former Employee) – Gemeente Vlaardingen – September 20, 2017
It was my honour to work in one of six global R&D centre of Unilever. I learnt a lot and had a lot of fun there. All colleagues are happy to help interns. There are many experts in different area such as chemistry, microbiology and food processing. You can easily approach them and learn knowledge form them. I really appreciate this experience that working in Unilever.
Senior Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Singapore – May 30, 2017
The best working place I ever had so far, friendly colleagues and great working environment. As a 3rd party employee I love the flexibility of work they promote agile working. Can learn more and enhance communication skill.
Demanding hours and there is no clear KPIs for the job. Advancement was a political topic and it wasnt dependent clearly on performance. If you're looking for a real marketing job, this is not the place to do it. You'll be learning more on stakeholder management.
Marketing Intern (Former Employee) – Singapore – January 19, 2017
The atmosphere at Unilever is very nice: people are nice, the work to do is very interesting and the overall location/building are very nice to work in.
The people I worked with really tried to make my experience interesting and exciting as it was my first job "placement". Because Unilever is such a big company, I didn't have time to be bored, I always had something to do and something new to discover.
Software Programmer (Current Employee) – Singapore – July 11, 2016
working in office with great colleagues will enhance my skills and understanding about business and developing the logics in macros for creating the reports. the hardest part is when the supply planners will not give the requirements on time this will keep delaying the projects to be done on the timeline.
Good work life balance and benefits, lots of politics
IT Manager (Former Employee) – Singapore – January 19, 2016
Work life balance is emphasized by the organization allowing people to work from home or on flexible hours when necessary. Benefits are good with free gym membership and dependents medical included.
Downside is the company is very competitive making everyone seeming to be after each other's throats. Politics is very strong in the company where people cannot just sit down and work. You have to always check what is happening and be prepared in case you are the next one to get axed. There is a strong anti-foreigner sentiment among locals which is ridiculous considering this is a multi-national company.
If you can live with the downsides and have a thick skin to deal with irritating politics, then this may be for you. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
