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

    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.

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are good, also work-life balance is important to the company.

    Cons

    The company as a whole seems like it may be a good company to work for, however, the Product Supply department leaves a lot to be desired. Leadership is poor at best, there is no development direction and no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Require middle management to move into a new role after being in the same role for so long. There is no leadership on the team and the managers are terribly lacking in skills and the ability to manage teams. HR needs more visibility to employees - HR reps are basically non-existent here.

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time

    Pros

    Chill work environment, relaxed dress code, easy work. People don't really care what you do so long as you get your work done.

    Cons

    Boring job, not enough work, generally bad management that is not very progressive or forward thinking. You will get shot down if you have ideas that are good but don't make management look good. Honestly though, the most boring job I have ever held and easily the most uninteresting co-workers of any job I have had. As far as the analyst role goes, its a position that requires a degree for whatever reason but a high school grad could easily do it and not really be challenged at all. You will get put in a box but if you don't mind monotonous daily work then it probably won't be too bad.

    Advice to Management

    Step up the game, be competitive, don't hurt employees for having better ideas than management

    Pros

    Work was interesting, changes everyday, keeps you learning. Mill environment is rigorous but offers plenty of opportunity

    Cons

    Some awful management at the time I was working. Top management at the mill was some of the most incompetent, pompous individuals I've met. All managers have since been replaced, so it does not apply to current staff.

    Advice to Management

    All management has been changed and the new ones were excellent when I dealt with them in a different setting. Best of luck.
