    Pros

    Great people and caring culture, Strong focus on ethics and compliance to do the right thing. New leadership coming in helps to strengthen KC results.

    Cons

    Passive aggressive culture at times which keeps progress from being made. Lots of old school thinking. Good ole boys club still in place even though many new leaders are trying to change.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark as an intern

    Pros

    The people at this company are great. Very friendly and willing to help even a co-op/intern. Although it is a large organization, I never experienced the bureaucracy that you can sometimes get with a big company.

    Cons

    The corporate office is located in a small town in Wisconsin.

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture is fantastic. Freedom in my org is wonderful. Love the flexibility and the robust amount of tasks. Come work here!

    Cons

    Work/ role responsibility very fragmented. Leadership often says one thing and does another. Resourcing can be an issue that is often ignored or shrugged off by leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Opinions are often ignored, and leadership narrative constantly trumps ideas and logic of people who actively participate in day to day operations.

    Pros

    they give you better benefits if you're a dedicated worker.

    Cons

    Honestly, they're okay they are not all that because they hire and fire operators left to right and they discriminate against the elderly and make them leave home early and give them lesser hours.

    Advice to Management

    they should find new management and stop allowing operators and supervisors get fired for unneccessary reasons .
