"Great people, ok company"

Current Employee - Engineer III in Neenah, WI
Current Employee - Engineer III in Neenah, WI

I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

People are good to work with, problems focus on processes and not the people. Employees empowered and trusted to make decisions. Usually held accountable too.

Cons

Red tape, promotions based on who you know or how well liked and known you are by management. Currently a lot of consultants are giving some not so great advice and Sr mgmt is listening. Pay, career path, and business organization have lacked direction over the past several years.

Advice to Management

Middle management struggles between a dedicated workforce and the politics above. Small changes for the better have been good, but not enough. Having to say "yes" all the time or setting unrealistic goals isn't going to turn the company around.

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, very safety aware. Opportunity to buy product a low cost. Monthly incentives to win gift cards, production results, safety results. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Performance review is based on a pyramid concept. Only a few can be at the top and so many MUST be at the bottom. You are calibrated against everyone that works there, not just your department. Results are based on perceptions and not necessarily the facts.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At the time of my employment, the organization provided competitive compensation, however, it is my understanding they have gone through a salary restructuring.

    Cons

    Again, limited growth opportunities; lack of leadership training; significant development opportunities in the area of building morale

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest a focus on developing ALL employees, not just certain groups. I would also encourage them to refrain from playing the "blame game". At the end of the day, the organization is a team; employees are not pawns. Focus on getting the job down vs. pointing fingers when a plan fails.
