Great place to work until they closed the mill.

Pros

Good wages and benefits, emphasis on safety in the mill, good people to work with. The company likes to hire recent college grads and does provide internships/coop experience.

Cons

Kimberly-Clark closed the Everett mill site in April of 2012, putting 750 people out of work. They are rumored to be closing more sites in the future.

Local managers are good but often hampered by direction from corporate headquarters.

24/7 operation hard on family life.

No help from the corporation in finding work at other KC mills when the Everett mill closed.

If you are a salaried employee, you can not move up in the company unless you relocate to other locations around the country. Hourly (union) employees can not move up out of production jobs without a degree.

    Pros

    I've had great development experiences across various sectors of the business, and in different locations. Lots of responsibility, even when I was junior with the firm. Good resources to help mentor and grow talent within.

    Cons

    Trend over the last 5-7 years has been to hire externally (and, usually with dubious success.) Add that to much into narrower career ladders as a result of restructures. So, it's been harder to get development into director level and higher as they've been filling the few positions that exist from outside when they do open up.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your development roles below MAAP/director--you need to have them. Create a formal development program for high potential talent and then use it judiciously.
