Company is on the rise, but may not be for everyone.

Senior Research Scientist (Current Employee)

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

ProsStable company, management is making changes with more focus on winning in the marketplace, business and individual performance/compensation versus just trying to cost-save its way to the next earnings report. Company is making good effort to improve diversity of leadership ranks. Despite the "con" listed below, company is still a good place to work and if you are a top performer you can write your own ticket regardless.

ConsCompany will bend over backwards to retain women, but doesn't care much about men. Men are tracked into "grunt work" assignments with high travel at staff or end up working in a plant in the middle of nowhere, or their careers don't advance or go backwards. Women have a lot more opportunity to be "picky" on their work assignments with a lot less penalty for wanting to manage work-life balance, location, travel requirements, etc.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Engineer Co-Op

Engineering Co-Op (Current Employee)
Conway, AR

I have been working at Kimberly-Clark as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe work schedule as a co-op is very flexible. Every engineer and manager is very helpful, and provides advice both work-related and personal. Safety is taken very seriously and is rewarded. There are several work-related events that K-C puts on throughout the year, which allows employees to meet each others families and have a good time. K-C provides the opportunity to move around and get experience at other locations.

ConsThe work was tedious and not very interesting after a while. The salary is okay, and it appears that one must be very fortunate to get promoted. There are some engineers that have been working for 20+ years in the same role.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Kimberly-Clark as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe culture was great and the company seemed to be very well organized. I also really liked the other employees as they were very helpful so I got to bring a lot away from my experience there.

ConsUsually not much going on in Neenah and the company seemed to be going downhill from what I heard from other employees.
