Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WIOctober 24, 2015
After a long career it did not seem that my time and experience was valued. Several down sizing cycles left many with a sour taste.

Opportunities to Learn and Grow
Operations Consultant / Asset Leader (Former Employee) –  Jenks, OKOctober 19, 2015
Enjoyed colleagues. HR systems appeared antiquated and opportunity for growth among the operators was limited due to lack of motivation and drive. Efforts made for development and growth, but day to day got in the way. Ultra safe environment created hindrances at times.
Pros
Pay and Benefits, effort to help with family balance
Cons
Early operational meetings impacted ability to care for kids in morning as a single mom

Great work place
Operations Associate (Former Employee) –  Jenks, OKOctober 17, 2015
Great company to work for, but rely too much on peer reviews to determine advancement. 12hr shifts, 3 to 4 days a week, working on an assembly line with anywhere from 2-5 people on it at all times. You spend at least 9 hours per shift on your feet and moving the whole time.

Micromanagement
Accounts Receivable Assistant (Former Employee) –  KnoxvilleOctober 14, 2015
Unethical place to work they manage you strictly by numbers and not including performance, cost savings, or other positive factors. They look for a way to make the numbers work in their favor regardless of the impact on the employees or the community. They breed a culture of false hopes and dreams to try and inspire you to work harder for no success.
Pros
not any more
Cons
no work life balance or room for growth

It is somewhat difficult to progress within the company. Otherwise, most of the people are good and friendly. There are a lot of changes within IT.

IT area no room for advancement
IT Instructional Designer (Current Employee) –  Neenah, WIOctober 13, 2015
IT department goes through a re-org. about every 5 years. Who is retained is not based on performance (good or bad).

Very difficult to move from IT to the Business.

Productive work area where people love to go back to work
Corporate Research and Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Roswell, GAOctober 1, 2015
I worked in two locations and the locations differ completely. While working in Roswell, I enjoyed being an intern and had a lot of fun while completing my tasks without being micro-managed. While in Neenah, WI, I felt that there was a lot less of work-life balance and didn't enjoy all parts of my job. Two different views of a company that I loved so much. The type of work environment differs based on what sector of the company you are in. Loved working for KC, just didn't really love the work that I had in Neenah.
Pros
Happy people, company that cares for it's employees
Cons
Different experience through out the company, not all sectors of the company act the same way.

Poorly managed
FM Strategy (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WISeptember 21, 2015
Local management has several managers who were promoted because of who they know, not what they know.
The KC culture solves problems similar to the way the children's story of the three little pigs.
First they develop many processes and policies that will warn them of a potential problem,
Then they hire large volumes of new colleagues (who are later outsource) to identify problems.
They never understand the importance of the last piggy's actions. who eliminated the problem.

KC rarely eliminates the problem,
WHY because the management who are in charge are not qualified in there fields and are not confident enough to risk making a change. remember they manipulated the situation to place themselves in a better position, so they are not replaced by a new comer, because KC down size every couple of years, KC management culture is take as much knowledge from the new colleagues to better themselves. they call this building talent - "their own"

SO if you are thinking of working for KC, know up front they will want to know all you know, because they are preparing for the next round of down sizing.

The KC world headquarters is in Dallas, after a trip there they asked me why is Neenah so dysfunctional, So Dallas is well aware of the management culture and allow it to remain dysfunctional.

In my 30 years of working through out the Midwest, KC tops the chart for lack of Integrity.

Best of Luck,
Pros
FWA
Cons
They are a Bait and Switch company.

Unstable, work home life imbalance expected
Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Conway, ARAugust 31, 2015
Kimberly-Clark is a company that provides very competitive wages and benefits to its' salaried workers. It's also a very safe environment with a great culture related to safety.

There is very little accountability. Workers who under perform are rewarded the same as those that perform better. Pay is NOT performance based. It's more related to how well you negotiate getting in and then you get raised based on where you're at in the "range" of your paygrade. Lower in range, higher raise. Higher in range, lower raise. Trying to bring everyone to the middle essentially.

Work-home life is also skewed. They say aloud that you should keep them balanced. Then, they whisper that you're expected to work holidays so it doesn't interrupt the business. They'll tell you no nights, then expect you to work nights multiple times per year to "meet the business need".

It's worth it for the pay if you can deal with the dishonest, hidden culture.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
work-life balance, accountability

Fork Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Marinette, WIAugust 30, 2015
I trained with people on the Echo re-winder, where I learned more about it, as I already had some experience.

I had great co-workers.

There wasn't anything hard about the job.

I enjoyed everything about the job. I love working.
Pros
Safety, rewards.
Cons
No true review process.

good company to work for
Distributor Specialist (Former Employee) –  Roswell, GAAugust 19, 2015
It is a good company with excellent employees. Safety in all aspects is the number one goal of the company and people within the company. Everyone here plays hard and works even harder. It's a family focused company with the employees best interest at heart.

Stocker (Former Employee) –  Beech Island, SCAugust 13, 2015
Go in at 7am or pm and work 12 hrs. Nothing but stocking. Didn't talk to management much. Co-workers stayed to themselves for the most part. I hated the alternating shifts. One week you'd be working days, the others at night. It was very boring and repetitive. It was very easy to do though.
Pros
Many Breaks
Cons
Alternating hours
