    Pros

    Great benefits, good people and good management

    Cons

    Could invest a little more on supply chain planning tools. SAP is implemented but not fully exploited to help with short term, mid range and long term capacity planning. However, I would not treat this as a cons. It's an opportunity.

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

    Pros

    Kimberly-Clark pays its employees well. The culture is also driven by the strong people it employees. People are knowledgeable and outgoing, which creates a consumer-driven mindset, with everyone focused on building the best company they can.

    Cons

    Management is extremely dysfunctional, and the majority of upper management don't follow the company's culture. Often departments are short-staffed so the workload is almost impossible for one person to handle. The performance-based culture can be commended, but upper management is often exempt from the harsh criticism that they place on lower employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to build trust with your employees. Also, create a better work/life balance for your employees and stop expecting them to be focused on their job 60-80 hours a week. Live the company values and stay consistent.
