    Great company with nice people

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark

    Pros

    Very relaxed culture for a large corporation. Employees are very nice and supportive of one another. 1/2 day summer Fridays are nice.

    Cons

    Very different feel across brands. One brand may do things one way while another brand may do the complete opposite. Hard to figure out what the company strategy is vs. individual brand strategy as a result.

    Pros

    Company trains people to a very high level. When plant shutdown and we all had to move on we were well prepared to start in any company.

    Cons

    Knowing how well we all were prepared the company got a lot from us without paying us much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Got real experience solving an issue with a product to be marketed in 2015/2016.

    Cons

    People don't know what they want. Mentor/other stakeholders were so busy with their owned schedules that I didn't get the help I needed when I needed it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what you need. Don't expect your co-ops to have all the solutions to your problems, especially when you don't help them grow

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company is awesome. They treat their employees very well and pay is competitive, especially considering cost of living in the area. The people are mostly down to earth and the company encourages you to try new roles every 18 months, which keeps employees engaged and motivated.

    Cons

    Neenah, where most of the employees live or end up, is not a thriving area for young adults. This makes it difficult for the company to retain top talent.
