Kimberly-Clark Engineering

Co-Op (Former Employee)

ProsAt the locations I was at Kimberly-Clark the people were as a rule pretty friendly. The company has a pretty good culture and the pay is very good.
Most of the management is pretty good.

ConsAt the engineering and management level the company always seems perpetually understaffed. Ten hour days are the norm for salaried employees.
Also the general level of co-op advisers varies greatly. KC might think its a good idea to pair a first term co-op to an engineer who's never had a co-op before, but that isn't always good for the co-op.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease give a class on the progress review forms. I have yet to meet a supervisor that fully understands them or even rates the same way as any other. This can lead to some very odd performance variations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
