    Pros

    You're given freedom to make your own decisions in problem solving. The management is very nurturing and wants you succeed. The other employees also provide excellent support in helping you reach your goals. Depending on your role you may get to travel the world as well since Kimberly Clark has a large international presence.

    Cons

    There may be a learning curve for people coming straight from school to a corporate environment. It shouldn't impact people with previous work experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    I have been with K-C for almost 10 years and the culture continues to get better. They challenge you to think big and come up with bold solutions. Great benefits with health and fitness center with on-site fitness coaches, a pool, laundry and towel service. Awesome.

    Cons

    Always more initiatives and opportunities to do. So prioritization is key.

    Advice to Management

    keep empowering your teams

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As far as I can tell on mid to senior level K-C is a great employer. Employees have access to K-C academy (basic pre-MBA business education), salary is pretty competitive, overall right ethics and corporate culture.

    Cons

    As far as I heard, junior positions are quite stressful, just like in every big corporation. B2B division and key accounts departments are quite stressful as well. Challenging sales plans are common, the push is quite hard.

    Advice to Management

    Make great corporate culture available from lower levels of employment - right now it starts working from mid-senior level. Make junior employees feel that spirit.
