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

Pros

Focused on growth of their people more than in the past; becoming an environmentally conscious company despite selling mostly disposable product lines

Cons

Conservative leadership and culture tends to slow down innovation and positive cultural changes such as more flexible work arrangements.

Advice to Management

Encourage all levels of management to embrace flexible work arrangements. Really challenge smart risk taking; our conservative values often hold us back from achieving the success we want.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements involving working from home. A no brainer position where all work involves repetition. Good position if you have a goal of getting in and getting out. Teaches you to establish a tolerance for ignorance from others but more especially management decisions. Boot camp for corporate.

    Cons

    Team leadership generally is not qualified for the position. Proven illustration of racism provided by the most recent team leader. When issues are brought to upper management no resolution is made. Lack of respect to members of the team. No benefits, kudos, or thank you's given from management. There is no growth opportunities for customer service... If that is where you start that is where you tend to finish. The most recent team leader removed several african-american team members while others resigned.

    Advice to Management

    Completely revamp management and learn to utilize resources that produce results. Since CSR's deal with customers ask them what could be used to improve efficiencies. Acknowledge the issues regarding harassment, racism, and micromanagement. Realize that team leaders are not always right.
