When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck (approximately $113K annually) can be spotted in Trumbull, Conn.; Chicago, Ill. ($89K), Englewood Cliffs, N.J. (around $86K), and New York, N.Y. (about $85K) are the next top-paying cities. High paychecks are not found in Covington, Tenn.; in fact, at $42K it is one of the worst-paid cities. By state, the highest pay levels are found in Connecticut, where the average Unilever employee makes $88K per year.
Years of Experience
Between the one and five year mark, median pay is $76K annually. Broken down by tenure, the largest share of Unilever employees (36 percent) have five to nine years of experience and earn approximately $82K per year on average.
The highest average salaries go to Associate Brand Managers, who bring in close to $98K annually, though Finance Managers are not far behind at around $85K along with Associate Marketing Managers ($85K) and Marketing Managers (about $78K). Financial compensation for Packaging Engineers is rather low — on average only $65K — relative to the rest of the company.
Certifications and Degrees
Being a Project Management Professional certainly has its perks — salaries approach approximately $88K per year and far exceed the paychecks of those without certification. Unilever workers who hold a Master of Arts (MA) are also well compensated, earning $109K on average.
The highest-paying skill to have in this role seems to be Strategic Marketing; employees claiming this as part of the toolbox earn a median of around $106K annually. A garden variety skill at Unilever is Project Management; slightly less than a third of Unilever's people use it regularly. Other skills in demand are Marketing Management, Microsoft Excel, and Data Analysis.
Benefits and Perks
Unfortunately, a minority of employees — about a quarter of survey participants — are presented with both paid vacation and sick leave. A strong majority of workers participate in a 401(k) program. The vast majority of survey participants report having health insurance, and most survey participants report having dental coverage. The list of perks also includes a casual working environment, a subsidized cell phone, tuition reimbursement, and flexible hours.
