    If organizational reinvention is needed, give the team time to settle into their new shoes.

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time

    Pros

    The products are great - essentials that make lives better. Definitely well-known at least #1 or #2 in most markets. The operations in the mills are top notch - safety is #1 and all employees know it.

    Cons

    Very complex organization with decisions centralized at the top even though the company profess to be running on a markets empowered model. It is only true to some extent where the markets are the ones that are making money.
    You don't know where you stand because managers tend to go with the flow of the bosses. The company introduced coaching across the globe but unfortunately these tend to be more classroom sessions than really practiced in life. Managers here don't coach - they tell and they think this is coaching.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to views of the employees - don't just say you do listen. Really put those feedback into action especially those that help the company run well and better.
