    Pros

    Very friendly atmosphere and awesome managers. Lots of learning opportunities and a lot of responsibility

    I really can't think of many. I would still be there today if they offered a higher entry level salary.

    Keep doing what you are doing. Kimberly Clark has a great family like atmosphere.

    Pros

    Great with flex time and summer Friday afternoons off. Nobody is looking over your shoulder making sure you are putting in specific hours it is all about getting your work done.

    Cons

    As an R& D person, over the years there seems to be less emphasis on doing good experimentation and fundamental research more on outsourcing and project management. It is less rewarding if that is your interest.
