    Not bad overall

    Forecast Analyst (Current Employee)
    Appleton, WI

    ProsGood flexibility with work schedules. Opportunities for training and personal growth. Good performance management process and open opportunities process.

    ConsHave been through a couple of periods of lay offs that have made the work environment more stressful and negative than it used to be. Haven't seen much in the way of streamlining of work and many people are overwhelmed with the work they've had to take on. Also there is an absolutely terrible performance review process in place that has created a lot of tension and competition among employees that didn't used to be there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFix the performance review process, it is a waste of time and creates a really bad work environment every year around that time. Keep trying to help the employees who have absorbed all of the work from the recent downsizing to get their work back in balance.

    Too much focus on delivering short term results to Wall Street at the expense of long term brand equity investment.

    Brand Manager (Current Employee)
    Appleton, WI

    Pros3 words - Work Life Balance! Kimberly-Clark is an excellent place to work for great work life balance.
    It is extremely flexible with office/face time as long as the work is getting done.

    ConsKimberly-Clark is a complex matrix organization that has too many people and layers for effective decision making that all have to be on the same page before a recommendation or decision will be pushed up through the layers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe focus on short term results has been at the expense of long term equity building initiatives.

    Used to be great - now needs more focus core values and products.

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Appleton, WI

    Prosgreat mix of staff - but this has changed drastically lately & morale is very low currently.

    Consas a global company we've been seduced into thinking that staff can be commoditized and treated as "heads" rather than "people" with more knowledge and experience than they're given credit for. We seem to be currently looking just for "cheaper" rather than "better value".

    Advice to Senior Managementmanage, direct, lead. be confident enough to make decisions and stand by them - even if they don't fit "the process". "the process" doesn't sell our products or actually get anything done. fix the company & the share price will follow (not the other way round). micromanagement and indecision are crippling the ability to get things done. sometimes you have to try and fail in order to suceed - but there are too many people are trying to take credit for anything that's looking sucessful - rather than simply being given clear responsibilities in their specific areas.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
