    Great work environment. Opportunity to work from home with work/life balance. KC give you the opportunity to work both independently and in group settings. Leadership at KC is good as long as your willing to play the corporate game.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They were mentor ship form senior management as well as working closely with a well known retail chain. The daily interactions between the Retail consumer company and marketing team at Kimberly Clark.

    Cons

    Change of Senior management. The new President of sales. All of senior management replaced by new president of consumer sales with his own team from past employer. Our teams that had been mentored by our former Senior management was no longer available for personal contact. A lot of senior account managers were replaced by new presidents former employer. Not a customer service team environment anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Please re-create the 'team' atmosphere between Sr. management, marketing staff and sales team. Stop ruling by intimidation and the four quad rating system. They had a strong sales force, team efforts and strong mentoring opportunities. They threw away a lot of seasoned professionals.

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements, casual dress, great co-workers

    Cons

    Limited mobility due to grade system.

    Advice to Management

    Several of my Co-workers have left because they are unable to advance to another role due to the grade system. At this time I am also weighing my options. You should consider a system that allows for experience and education, not just current grade.

    Pros

    Slightly above average pay scale. Dynamic environment with external customer as focus. Willing to discover new ways of conducting business IF the leadership team of the department or functional areas is on board. IF NOT you will get frustrated.

    Cons

    Depending on what part of the company you work with, there can be a strong influence of an insider's network of career employees. Many have learned how to protect their positions even though they may not be producing results. The organization also goes overboard on having meetings. Seems like they restructure the company every 3-4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Identify the next set of true leaders and let them run with the company. Stop outsourcing so many important areas to the business such as IT & HR
