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

    Pros

    K-C is a good company with a positive culture and environment. Generally, people do care about each other and their responsibilities and it is a positive place to work.

    Cons

    The positive culture at times gets in the way of progress at K-C. It is very consensus driven, where individuals do not always feel empowered or accountable, which can slow decision making. People are also often hesitant to provide constructive feedback to others, leading to some passive-aggressive behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Management is changing at K-C, and I believe that more accountability is being driven into the organization, which is a positive step. The trick will be to do this without stripping out the positive aspects of K-C.

    One of the worst Companies I ever worked - why - management! They do not listen and they are transparent, just like they claim, but not in a good way.

    Management is the problem -

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

    Pros

    KC is in a great community in Wisconsin. The salary is well above the standard of living. There are many opportunities for advancement. They have some education assistance as well. Many travel opportunities.

    Cons

    Located in a small city, although there are a couple of bigger cities nearby if you want to do things on the weekends. Constantly changing managers because people move around so much.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is transparent and personable. KC is a fairly attractive company to people coming out of college, so continue seeking top talent when recruiting.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None. Most employees are lazy and most of the leadership is self-absorbed and attempting to keep the middle managers down to a lower level

    Cons

    Worst company to work for if you are a female or older male. It is a "good old boys club" at Kimberly-Clark Corp

    Advice to Management

    Management is undereducated and useless. They need to bring in some new top talent.

    Pros

    Excellent chances to grow as a professional in any area. Superb promotion capabilities. They have great HUman Resources with excellent compensation.

    Cons

    Need to be willing to travel and relocate to grow. If you do not relocate, it may keep you stuck in a job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring "outside the box" type employees. It makes you a fun place to work at, as well as diverse.
