I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great place to work with work/life balance

Cons

Performance Review system is horrible. You get put into boxes that rate you.... However, there HAS to be a certain % of folks that fall within the low boxes. If you end up as one of those folks you are digging yourself out of a hole for at least a year or more and you are not allowed to even apply for another area within the company.
Benefits are a bit pricey.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop with the politics of performance management!

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark full-time for more than 10 years

    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.
