    Pros

    It is a great company to work i have learned so many things about the market and how to develop the brands of the corporation on the trade.Also the relations of my peers are excelent.

    Cons

    The corporation in essence its very very good,but some individuals does not match the corporate basics,and Human resources have so many push in another deparments as sales and Marketing .That create a serious dilema in charge of power

    Advice to Management

    My humble advise to the management is that every deparment must work independbly from human Resources Dept.

    Pros

    Great benefits and very good training. Stable income with little growth without being willing to move

    Cons

    Was a tremendous company to work for but several years ago it started to slide. Management made changes to sales leadership and go to market strategies and the results are showing in the form of bad results.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team, not the consultants.

    Conservative and results oriented. Transitions of leadership limit true investment in your development.

    Amazing benefits - on site workout facility, cafeterias, health services, "fun activities" for family and health, half day Fridays in the summer, work from home flexibiliity.

    Cons

    Frequent reorgs and transitions of team leads lead to fragmented individual development.

    Adapt LEAN and teach leaders to create a sense of team.

    Pros

    With such a storied history, Kimberly-Clark had always been close-knit. The training was great and the people were great. You knew your team would support you no matter what. Not only were they leaders in the industry, but they allowed their leaders to lead.

    Cons

    Times have changed. Kimberly-Clark decided not to change with the times. The arrogance of feeling like they knew more than their customers reached an all time high last year. They forgot what success looked like. They forgot what it meant to be leaders. They promoted people that had no business leading teams. Just because you are "smart" about business does not mean that you cannot learn about the marketplace. There are way too many directors that get to use their voice when the should really use their ears.

    Advice to Management

    Take a moment and really look at your Sales and Marketing leaders in your organization. Then look at the people in those roles 7 or 8 years ago. Who would you rather run the company? The people you have in place now, who are losing market share each year for the past 4 years? Or the folks from the past that built this company from hard work with great thoughts and relationships? Having been in the industry for two decades and knowing the teams - I know I would choose the people from the past who really knew their customers and how to sell the products. Marketing Leaders should believe in marketing. They should not be lead by sales professionals...not by engineers. The same holds true about Sales Leaders. They cannot be run by finance or by marketers. Keep people in roles that suit them! Trust the good ones to stay and do it right. Stop letting their voices be silenced thus forcing them to find a career with someone else!

    In the last few years there has been a lot of downzsizing and restructuring so job security was a worrry.
