I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – Decent salary for locality compared to other major employers.
Production Shift pattern gives plenty of time off. (144 shifts vs. 221 days off per annum)
Private Health care scheme.
Share purchase scheme with buy 2 get 1 free deal.
Company Shop to purchase products cheaply.
Cons – Far too much nepotism going on. New workers employed not for their skills and competancy, but because of who they are related to, or are best friends with!
HR awkward with no heart. Company sticks rigidly to rules but employees expected to be ultra flexible.
Company using current economic climate as excuse to trim costs, have ruined the future defined benefit pension of many long term employees by capping annual rises, also coupled with below inflation pay rises for the past 3 years, and pay band freezes/downgrading.
Advice to Senior Management – Use external assessors for recruitment selection to halt the nepostism / cronyism.
Capping wage rises, Pay bands, and pension benefits, will only serve to cap the enthusiasm of the current employees.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros – KC has a nice work environment and there are plenty of career opportunities if you are willing to go the extra mile and work hard. Very good training system and my experience has been that as ling as you are exceeding expectations with performance then the company is willing to invest in further developing people - for ex support with further education or flexible working.
Cons – Especially for the top performers pay doesn't reflect this therefore people don't feel rewarded enough which can be demotivatibg and sometimes KC is missing out on people that would otherwise be very passionate about their work and could be of great benefit to the company in the future. Management talks a lot about quick decisions and taking risk however they are slow in reacting to their team's concerns or doing something about it.
Advice to Senior Management – Promise less and action more, also ensure the pay reflects one's performance as the MBC doesn't reflect this at the moment and plans to put things right are not visible if they exist.
