I worked at Kimberly-Clark as an intern (More than a year)

(Translated from English)

Pros

Ich konnte mir CAD- und weitere praktische Engineering-Fähigkeiten aneignen, die man nicht direkt an der Universität erlernt. Es gibt die Möglichkeit, mehrere Monate an verschiedenen Orten in den USA zu arbeiten.

Cons

Jede Mühle und jeder Standort hat eine andere Kultur, und es ist teilweise etwas einsam, die einzige Person im Studentenalter am Standort zu sein. Es gab keine Unterweisung zu SolidWorks oder AutoCAD, wo ich am Anfang arbeitete, also war es zunächst ziemlich mühselig.

Advice to Management

Halten Sie den Kontakt zu Mitarbeitern an allen Standorten. In Neenah, Wisconsin, konnte man den CEO häufig sehen, aber es wäre schön, wenn die Bereichsmanager mehr Kontakt aufnehmen und die Geschäftsziele erklären würden.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, additional perks such as health center, cafeteria and forested grounds. Good team members depending on the department you are employed in, there is a very family like atmosphere. Good work/life balance for long term employees.

    Cons

    The culture is bipolar on many levels. Complicated levels of corporate programs that require HOURS of training but are never implemented and set everyone up for noncompliance. Seemed like a new system was being implemented every year and directives and training are extremely vague. Huge disconnect between global and regional goals. Managers in positions do not understand what they need or want, constantly mislead staff and then blame the staff for the mistakes. Feels like you're being led into failure. The culture has changed vastly over the years and many team members are extremely passive aggressive as a result. Sharky behavior is not dealt with appropriately and personnel are not held to the standard that the global objectives direct. They talk a good talk, but don't walk the walk. It is not unheard of for contract staff to work for years (+5) in a position only to watch coops and new engineers being hired left and right when these support positions NEVER have the opportunity of becoming permanent. If a company offers someone a contract position for that long, clearly that individual is value added Head count is always restrictive and the company is always undergoing reorganization which offers zero value to the departments affected and creates a culture of fear and people who lack accountability. Contract and partner personnel are treated extremely poorly. Janitorial, facilities management and other service teams are blamed for KC employees not following their own program. Safety program is a means to finger point and find fault while no KC employees are ever held accountable when safety concerns exist.

    Advice to Management

    KC was once an amazing culture. With a very high emphasis on people. When considering talent, consider those who have worked for your company for years in contract positions rather than hiring externally. You don't have enough gears to power your engine. Too management top heavy and not enough entry level positions for talented work staff. Enforce the programs you already have in place before implementing new ones that are never enforced. Focus more on personal and professional accountability than the blame game. Work together to find real solutions rather than being defensive and passive aggressive.
