There's always something new to learn each day. Seniors are very helpful and encouraging, they often support us whenever we are in need. Managers improve the way of working and encourage creativity in work. Hard work never goes unappreciated here, and our time is valued by all. There are very less toxic employees here, mostly we have a great group of supporting colleagues. Often there is outbound and supplier visit which helps in socializing and better technical understanding. Overall, it's a wonderful place to work and grow in a career.

One of the fantastic organizations for role makers!
I always wanted to work in an organization that offers enough space to think independently about my own work and shape my responsibility in alignment with business need without a boundary of rigid framework. Unilever encourages me to challenge status co, think in terms of value add, spot opportunities for potential transformation. While I get flexibility to decide what I want to do that makes business sense, their is strong performance culture around living up to my delivery commitment. My work encourages me to step out of comfort zone and collaborate with other colleagues to deliver new capabilities with openness. The organization with it fast paced business has made me realized that it's only change that's constant in the world!
Unilever has been a great workplace for me, the company not only provided me with extensive exposure in the legal sphere as their marketing lawyer but also exposure in terms of interactions with the various business and research and development teams, as also many of the government organizations. A typical day at work was extremely enterprising and full of learnings and new interactions. Work at Unilever also exposed me to a lot many challenges on the legal and business perspective, however, as it is said, where there is a will there is a way and thus bearing this principle in mind, I have been successful in approaching all the challenges. I look forward to better and bigger opportunities as i move on in my career.
A typical working day at Unilever:-
Before any work could be started Health and Safety checks had to be completed to ensure the area in which myself and my team were working was meeting standards. A check list had to be completed before any machinery was operated and I was responsible for ensuring tasks such as adjustments on lines to machinery to get them running to improve the lines overall effective efficiency (OEE). This enabled engineers to continue with other breakdowns on other lines or maintenance tasks.
Objectives were set at the outset of each working day to ensure productivity targets were met.
Productivity Targets were set at the outset of each working day, however self initiative was paramount to ensure deadlines and productivity targets were met.
What I learned:-
I learned that promoting a 'Can-Do' approach towards to tasks in hand ensured all of the above could be achieved. Having a positive outlook at the start of each day promoted productivity with team members.
I also learned that dependability was a key feature in my working day, Dependability was a quality that worked well for team members as they relied on me to get tasks done and also for the company as they could feel assured that I would work to the best of my ability and also lead a team of 6 staff to get the job done.
Co-operation and maintaining positive relationships with colleagues and supervisors was another quality which showed a wi

Corporate Conglomerate with major global brands, diversity, global leaders & a great mission statement
Global brand development in London either meeting in Studio marketing office or Unilever Chelsey corporate offices for top-level meetings. Daily review of US innovation teams needs due to time change. Once US projects and directives have been executed, then regroup with Creative Team for their input on product strategy, brand launches, upcoming events, and projects. Depending on which country is in town or on the calendar host multiple int'l conference calls to source and resolve various regional responsibilities and challenges. Manage and orchestrate top-level professionals product testing results along with organizing multi-tiered international flow communicating project guidelines and goals while relaying info to US innovation teams in real time. I learned invaluable huge corporation policies and procedures, research practices, politics, and expedient project follow through. Management and global leaders were all brilliant and motivating maintaining strong focus and understanding of objectives. Co-workers were very diverse throughout EU and aggressive in making a strong imprint on the brand however they saw fit although they were not as friendly or brand loyal as I had hoped. Hardest part of the job was supporting the new brand direction I felt conflicted about that ultimately decreased revenue globally while working long hours to help in a movement i didn't truly believe in with people who were more in it for themselves rather than the company.

Meet sales Reps and make calls on many different classes of trade.
Management had a " Cavalier Attitude" to hiring Sales Reps. One was hired before I on-boarded with the firm in Wantaugh ,L.I.
Then he was assigned to Cover Fairfield County, CT and Westchester County outside NYC. It generally took him 2 hours in the morning before he reached his first call and 2 hours at the end of the day in the evening to get home. He burned out quickly.
Management had a " Cavalier Attitude" to attending meetings on time. Often meetings were scheduled at the office for 8;30 AM and the Manager would stroll in at 10 to 10:30 AM saying it was traffic.
We all faced the same traffic.
The hardest part of the job was competing with top brands like Crest from Proctor and Gamble and Colgate. These were well established brands and had consistent advertising and marketing support on TV . Lever did not support these brands and they died on the vine and were sold to Arm & Hammer. After many new product failures Lever learned that the best way to build a #1 brand name was to BUY it and they did a great purchase of Chesborough-Ponds after I left the firm.
Selling and maintaining placement of any product line in a grocery store/chain is like going to war every day. If your products are not supported by a strong marketing program as well as well trained and staffed sales force the products will not survive over the long term as viable inventory items in the trade.

A truly learning organization with performance orientation
For almost 5 years of my early working life, I both contributed to the business success of the organization and had a wonderful learning experience with this global giant in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods Market [FMCG].
I worked in a Business Process Review/Management Team [that reviewed key Business Processes in 5 Divisions of the Group] in my first year: Then I moved to the Product Development function before moving into the Marketing function. My working in Business Process and Marketing required me to travel a lot both within and outside Ghana.
Typical day at work would involve my participating in a morning departmental meeting at which we would review the previous day's activities and pick up on any outstanding items that required further attention. The rest of the day would find me applying myself to tasks that would lead to my achieving my day's objectives.
I learned my whole foundation of Management principles with Unilever. I learned how to work smart and work to achieve set objectives. I learned the culture of planning, monitoring and controlling how a business should run. I learned how to work in teams, both as a member and as a Leader. I learned hot to communicate effectively and how to place my unique talents at the disposal of my team and the organization.
Management were very receptive to new ideas and mentored us young Managers.
I had very helpful co-workers and although there were times when we did not agree on a number of issues, we always found ways t
The entire privacy programme and strategy is about helping everyone to understand their role in privacy. Once Unilever's privacy principles and legal objectives are widely understood then our strategy will succeed. The entire concept of trust and transparency is fundamental to our digital growth ambitions to have a two way dialogue with one billion people, and the need to demonstrate how we comply with the law is built on the ‘Accountability Principle’. Through the provision of tools, techniques, guides, policies, procedures and standards - that will ensure that privacy principles are fully established throughout Unilever. We have also achieved the following: • Single handedly engaged with nearly every ULE board member on privacy and related security issues, and developed and cultivated relationships and networks across the entire business in nearly every MCO/Cluster. • Raised the profile of privacy within Unilever and advised Paul Polman, Audit Committee and NEDs on issues of privacy and cyber security. • Cultivated an open dialogue with key functions where the Privacy CoE are seen as a ‘must invite’ on committees and project boards including SalesForce, CEC, PRM, Workday and many more. As a leader, I am required to establish and maintain a consistently high level of motivation remains throughout our privacy programme. Over the last three years, I have replaced four people to ensure the equilibrium, passion and focus remains in place. This helps to drive people’s enthusiasm
