    Pros

    Great company with great heritage, people, teams and achievements.

    Cons

    Some of the new outside leaders focus on financial assets instead of the great human asset.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the high level and quality of leaders, and be more selective with the new leaders. It will help you to maintain your real talents.

    Pros

    Kimberly-Clark has a great HR department. During recruiting and employment as a mechanical engineering co-op, I had a great experience working with the HR department. The pay is comparable to other internships and co-ops and the work is interesting.

    Cons

    The town of Marinette, WI is not the most interesting place to have a co-op. I watched a lot of movies that summer and spent a lot of time by the lake and exploring the town.

    Advice to Management

    Keep things interesting for the co-ops during work, because the town is not going to keep any employees there.

    Pros

    Bonuses started in 2014. I have worked with some exceptionally smart, nice people who embraced the corporate values.

    Cons

    There are big pockets of the company where the corporate values are just words and politics reign..

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at your leadership teams and the impact they have on corporate culture.

    Pros

    Well paid, decent benefits, nice facilities

    Cons

    Too many hours expected (salaried hourly wage greatly diminished by this); disparity in internal job posting

    Advice to Management

    Adopt a European attitude about work and home life - Work to live not live to work! Time off is good for employee morale.
