No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some flexibility with hours for salaried employees

Cons

Long days/weeks; under -appreciated; zero confidence in mill management

Advice to Management

There is zero confidence in the mill management. Attitudes of the workers and salaried folks are going downhill fast. If it is not addressed seriously soon, I see this mill being closed within 10 years.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Heroic brands. Good work-life balance. Good family values. Strong distribution system.

    Cons

    Analysis paralysis. Very frugal. Major operations are based out of a nice, but small town.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the flash of new leadership derail your purpose

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are friendly Company car I think they are generally trying to change the culture for the better (but they are missing the mark most of the time) Great wins in innovation

    Cons

    High turnover of minorities and women (and they admit they need to improve the situation) No leadership, just task managers Old-school good ol' boy mentality Pay is low Dying brands that lack brand support (Kotex) Last to implement trends (digital marketing, etc.) Afraid of change Poor decision making Tom Falk is less than inspiring

    Advice to Management

    It's sad that a company known for successfully marketing the first feminine product is also known for being one of the worst workplaces for women. Women and/or minorities are the last to get ahead at the company (and this is freely admitted as a major turnover issue at EVERY major sales meeting & national meeting). If you want to real change at your company, you need to go beyond creating a culture of "accountability" and focus on leadership training, and improving morale. To ensure all employees have an equal opportunity to promote throughout the company, assess talent with a more structured and objective methodology such as intuiting an assessment board/team for assessing talent and promotions. Fire the CEO, add more women and minorities to leadership positions, and implement a new culture, not just that of 'accountability', but that of leadership and real change that is inspiring. Be quicker to adopt the latest industry trends, and re-structure to ensure decisions are made in a more streamlined manner.
