  • If upper management were aware of how often this goes on I don't think they would be happy (in 27 reviews)

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance, family like work environment, there are some really exceptional team leaders,

    Cons

    HR seems determined to lower rate of retainment past 5 years (there is a WSJ article on this search for "deadwood and Kimberly Clark), difficulty advancing or moving out of your silo, lower than average pay, often silo'd thinking instead of whats best for the company

    Advice to Management

    start offering more crossfunctional roles to employees at grade 11 status. this could create well rounded individuals in leadership roles. Additionally stop trying to lower the retention rate for employees this used to be KC's shinning achievement that attracted talent (and kept tribal knowledge in house)

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great opportunity for growth and training. The company genuinely cares about their employees.

    Cons

    Employees there for 20+ years don't seem to have the drive for success like newer ones. They tend to do things 'the way they've always been done'.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge longtime employees to think outside the box and be willing to take risks.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark full-time

    Pros

    Its an amazing company, was ranked top 50 employers in America in 2017, #1 CPG company. The work environment is great. You do get a free car and gas when working in Sales. As a CDA you work with the current employees in the roles which you can move into in the next year. This gets you great experience in these areas and can help you decide what role you want to go into next.

    Cons

    With the opportunity to work with the many roles comes the con of not having exact job responsibilities. This means there are times where you may not have work to do. You do also move into a new role after a year or two. Meaning, if you move to a city for your time as a CDA, youre likely going to have to move on and start all over in a new city after only a year or so. This depends on what city you start in and how many positions are open where.

    Advice to Management

    The program needs much more structure.
