    Pros

    -A ton of overtime available
    -Great breaks
    -Clean working environment
    -Great pay
    -Management that cares

    Cons

    -Many other floor workers can get away with not trying/caring on the job, as it is almost impossible to get fired

    Advice to Management

    -Stop trying too hard for safety measures. A lot of the time you make the job way more difficult than it has to be without actually making anything safer.

    Pros

    Company with a great history of innovation and commitment to their core values

    Cons

    This current group of new leaders at the executive ranks are primarily focused on short term results and the latest analysts views instead of being focused on the next 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to your rich heritage and drive innovation vs. cost cutting us to the race to the bottom.

    Pros

    The culture is great and they do focus on your growth and opportunities

    Cons

    At least in the Finance org, the positions they have available for promotional opportunities aren't the most exciting and seem like they'll burn you out after awhile. The location of the North America office is also not ideal for someone who's not ready to settle down.

    Good people. Great brands. Stable. Summer hours.

    Gets a little cold up north. We need more team freedom and less decision makers.

    Pros

    They pay a very high salary compared to most CPG companies.

    Cons

    It is a good old boys club at the top VP and above. They work so hard to convince people that they promote women, but it's only for their image. The few women they have at the top are "yes" women that are there only so KC can say they have women in management.
    The culture is toxic, majority of employees at HQ are fearful of losing heir jobs. To protect themselves they constantly throw other people under the bus to make themselves look better than their associate.
    It's such a "nice" culture" that no one gives direct feedback. Instead they call HR and make constant complaints about their associates.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people below you, stop assuming they are inadequate.
    Don't sit and whisper to the male manager sitting next to you when women leaders are speaking. You are missing out on valuable information.

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

    Pros

    Employee Friendly, work life balance, ability to work from home, good insurance and benefit package. Management encourages quick decisions from the bottom up.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations for work load. Expectations of quickly moving through the departments. Completely correcting an issue does not happen. Management wants the quick fix. They promote on how much networking not on quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    Work with ALL individuals on how to have conversations with potential new team leaders and help them schedule networking opportunities and give them guidance and direction.
