Risk-Averse, Old-Style, but Stable

Team Leader (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

ProsKimberly-Clark is a conservative, stable company which isn't going to go belly-up in uncertain times like these. I feel stable in my position and am prouod fo the company's brands and reputation for making quality products. I love the people I work with and trust them. My sector primarily promotes from within to management positions.

ConsThere are few women or minorities in leadership positions in my sector. I do not see any concerted efforts to promote or recognize the values of diversity to the organization. Communication from the leadership of my sector regarding how we are doing is spotty. Compensation relative to others in the industry is less - this is justified to the employees by saying that we are such a stable and risk-averse company that the stability outweighs the compensation issues. There is a relatively new system of forced-ranking of performance and leadership qualities which penalizes those who take risks and fall short of goals. The system encourages those who sandbag, then blow out their numbers.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow your employees to take risk, learn from mistakes, and value those who are willing to take on risky projects. Make a concerted and company wide effort to employ and promote diverse teams. Make clear communication with all teams a priority.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
