    Current Employee - Engineering Co-Op in Conway, AR

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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