I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

People are good to work with, problems focus on processes and not the people. Employees empowered and trusted to make decisions. Usually held accountable too.

Cons

Red tape, promotions based on who you know or how well liked and known you are by management. Currently a lot of consultants are giving some not so great advice and Sr mgmt is listening. Pay, career path, and business organization have lacked direction over the past several years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Middle management struggles between a dedicated workforce and the politics above. Small changes for the better have been good, but not enough. Having to say "yes" all the time or setting unrealistic goals isn't going to turn the company around.

    One of the best companies I have ever worked for - brand driven but with people at the center.

    Pros

    Great, smart, caring people - strong business and marketing minds with a culture that is caring and compassionate.

    Cons

    Living in NE Wisconsin is not as exciting as New York, and the winters can be challenging at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are 140 years old this year - we will only make another 140 if we continue to innovate and grow new brands, not just renovate and improve the current ones.

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay, very safety aware. Opportunity to buy product a low cost. Monthly incentives to win gift cards, production results, safety results. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Performance review is based on a pyramid concept. Only a few can be at the top and so many MUST be at the bottom. You are calibrated against everyone that works there, not just your department. Results are based on perceptions and not necessarily the facts.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
