    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.
