    I worked at Kimberly-Clark as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work there is good work environment, very supportive seniors, good salary as compared to other company, appreciation of work irrespective of the hierarchical position of employees.

    Cons

    In India there is very little scope of promotion.
    Usually promotion is not justified as generally people who do not work too much and get promotion just because they are close to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't let the experienced employee leave the organisation try to negotiate

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with and for...the culture is idealistic and visionary. Adequate pay and benefits and, in my case, they encourage creative problem solving. Excellent training opportunities. Beautiful office environments and support for remote knowledge workers. They appreciate hard work, but do not try to burn you out.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit low compared to peer companies. They tend to have layoffs every 5-6 years ago which creates a depressing and fearful work environment for about a year. Forced ranking of employee performance, i.e. you can be "unacceptable" even if your boss says your're great and rates you as superior. To survive the rankings, you must be visible in a positive way with other managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a shareholder benefit focused big corporation that can be ruthless if you mismanage things. Better choice for managers and everyone: a B (benefit) corporation where shareholders, managers, workers and customers are equally valued.
    GET RID OF FORCED RANKINGS OF EMPLOYEES; you are now cutting out some muscle. Expect lawsuits if you continue forced rankings and a shift towards less group cooperation and more knife-in-the-back politics.
