Kimberly Clark Corporation is a great place to work!
Process Technician (Current Employee) – Corinth, MS – November 15, 2015
Kimberly Clark Corporation is a high-performance work place. The jobs can be strenuous at times and the hours are long, but the growth potential, compensation, and benefits far outweigh any challenges presented. Politics involving local leadership can be tiresome, but overall, management throughout the company maintains a balanced focus on the business and the employees. Kimberly Clark Corporation is a great place to work, and I would recommend it to any job seeker who is ready to work, who is able to work well in a team environment, and who can keep up with the pace of a high-performance work place.
Compensation, benefits, work-life balance
Can be difficult to advance from a labor-intensive position to a specialized professional position
Productive and fun work environment with ping pong table
Operations Consultant (Former Employee) – New Milford, CT – October 25, 2016
Kimberly-Clark is a great company to work for. Unfortunately, they expect managers to figure things out very quickly and if you don't, they'll fire you. This is a difficult environment when switching careers and working long 10-12 hour days.
Market Manager (Current Employee) – Florida – November 11, 2016
Very strange culture for a Fortune 500 company. Definitely "Boys Club" on my team and woman were treated unfairly. I stand behind the products but not management. Corporate trainer was an HR nightmare.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Maumelle, AR – November 2, 2016
Everyday we are required to be clocked in by 5:45 a.m. I learned how to operate the Endloop machines as well as the RFT machines. In my opinion management could have been better. But overall was ok. Most of my coworkers were easy to work with. The hardest part about the job was the hours. The easiest part was the work.
Global Product Development (Former Employee) – Neenah, WI – August 15, 2016
This company was a great place to work. There are vast opportunities to grow your career with broadening experiences from research and engineering, supply chain, purchasing, marketing, to operations. There is a great amount of teamwork required to be successful but also emphasis on individual accountability. The only opportunity for improvement is helping managers become more effective at coaching and developing people based on their skills and talents.
Very Safety oriented-Everyone goes home safe everyday-mentality OSHA Compliant Determined to protect the environment and the people that work there. Very customer oriented Product safety is the highest priority Learned a lot about safety, industry and leadership Both challenging and rewarding work I don't regret working there at all. I would recommend it to anyone.

pay and benifits are comparable to the area, but could be better.
Business Intelligence Consulting Co-Lead (Former Employee) – Neenah, WI – February 2, 2017
All my contacts with Kimberly Clark and collaborating IBM were professional and very helpful, an indication of a great working culture. All feedback were insightful, facilitating a very successful project.
Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) – Conway, AR – August 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.
terrible place to start depending on where you end up.
Operations Technician (Former Employee) – Owensboro, KY – September 20, 2016
Management is an absolute joke. Always looking to get after someone and if one person doesn't like you then you are made a target. Saw this on a few occasions. Go in with eyes on the bavk of your head and steer away from the days people as they're on the hunt.
Director (Current Employee) – Neenah, WI – January 13, 2017
You join based on company reputation, you plan to stay a few years and without realizing it, you've been there 15 years. People are great and want to help one another succeed; understanding that when we lose, we all lose and when we win, we all win.
