Years of Experience
Those who have five to nine years of work experience see average salaries of $76K per year. The largest fraction of Unilever people (33 percent) have been working for one to four years and earn around $64K annually on average.
Bringing in the most money are National Account Managers — their earnings average $109K per year. Regional Sales Managers are a close second at $103K along with Finance Managers (about $94K) and Manufacturing Production Planners (approximately $76K). Production Supervisors at Unilever do not see much in the way of financial compensation and represent one of the lower-paid positions ($54K on average) at the company.
When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck (about $114K annually) can be spotted in New York, N.Y.; Pleasanton, Calif. ($103K), Memphis, Tenn. (approximately $84K), and Trumbull, Conn. ($81K) are the next top-paying cities. Expected earnings are below average (around $60K) in Lisle, Ill., one of the lowest-paid cities. Within the firm, employees working in New York take home the most — $114K per year on average.
Certifications and Degrees
APICS Certification in Production and Inventory Managements are compensated at a much higher rate than non-authorized workers, bringing in close to approximately $85K annually. Earning a Certified Six Sigma Green Belt certification garners significant financial rewards of about $84K per year on average. Unilever workers who hold a B.A. in Liberal Studies are also well compensated, earning $103K on average.
The highest-paying skill in this position seems to be Sales Management; individuals who report it as part of the repertoire have a median income of around $97K annually. Microsoft Excel also popped up often in the survey as an important skill; one-fourth of employees surveyed report using it at work. Microsoft Office, Project Management, and Quality Assurance / Quality Control are also desirable skills.
