I worked at Kimberly-Clark full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great people to work with and learn from. place offered a variety of challenges to keep a pulp and paper mill running.

Cons

managers were some of the worst. no real experience in making paper or maintaining a mill. just a bunch of kids out of college trying to get a big company name on there resume. Lots of confusion with in the management structure and high turn over. When they closed the mill upper management lied to its employees and said they were 2years out from closing. turn out to be 12 months or less for sum

Advice to ManagementAdvice

cant give any to them.. they already know it all.

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

    Pros

    OK pay... and that's it

    Cons

    Where do I start.. When hiring you for this temporary customer service position they tell you it will be at least a year with a GREAT chance of being hired on directly. While there, numerous employees were being cut every day, after only being there for a few months, for no reason at all except "it's for the good of the company". The management does not take the time to get to know you. They will cut you in a second without thinking about it, and without care of your current situation. They're shifty, dishonest, and indirect. They'll never let you know what's going on with your own job. If you ask questions they'll cut you. You leave work every day not knowing if you'll have a job the next day. Would not recommend!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest, and start actually caring about your temporary employees! They're people too, who need jobs and rely on this one for at least a year! Just because they are temporary, stop treating them like dirt. Follow through with what you tell them during the hiring process. Make them feel welcome, and like they actually matter! Making your employees wonder every day when they'll be the ones cut, is not a way to run a successful business!

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

    Pros

    Great training, benefits, large corporation,

    Cons

    Good boy club at the top. Waste a lot of money paying salaries to those on top who don't know the business. They don't treat there employees well no matter how many years you have in. I have seen a lot of good talent leave or be told to leave. Not the company it used to be. They used to be more family orientated. Don't get trapped in a career there. They have no loyalty to their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees. Listen to what they have to say! You would be surprised on how much they actually know.
