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

    Pros

    Great culture, great work environment, perks of working for a large corporation(i.e. benefits, stability, on site health center etc), there is room to be yourself and be creative, lots of support for taking on new challenges, lots of chances for upward movement

    Cons

    There is not enough cross team communication which can be fixed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture real and keep recognizing people.

    Pros

    KC has a very caring culture and I haven't extremely disliked anyone I've worked with. Good benefits and, while challenging, not extremely competitive with colleagues takes away some stress you find in other companies.

    Cons

    Because the culture is so caring you find inefficiencies at work that can be frustrating. Sometime leadership is too "nice" and won't demote or fire someone who isn't doing a great job. It makes colleagues jobs harder. Also, it takes a lot of approvals to make a decision, which is also frustrating and inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Be caring, but also be bold and strategic. Don't just let someone sit in a role when they're not doing great. It drags down the rest of your team and you're not doing that person favors either because you know you're not going to promote them.

    Pros

    Great culture of caring and teaching with opportunities to advance

    Cons

    Sometimes poor decisions are made and "innovation" is a blanket term used when there's no clear path forward

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a few big, well vetted innovations instead of trying to do everything with mediocre execution
