Ups and Downs
Dispenser Specialist - Foreman (Current Employee) –  Roswell, GANovember 30, 2015
Management needs to understand that people are motivated by promotions. Been working here for 2 years with many accolades yet no opportunity for growth.

Most people are extremely pleasant to work with. The employees work together to ensure success.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Absolutely no advancement, most new hires come in as contractors and treated as second class.

Kimberly Clark Corporation is a great place to work!
Process Technician (Current Employee) –  Corinth, MSNovember 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.
Pros
Compensation, benefits, work-life balance
Cons
Can be difficult to advance from a labor-intensive position to a specialized professional position

Senior Manager - Long Term Research (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WINovember 5, 2015
A challenging work environment due to slim GM and the overarching focus on cost savings over innovation. Most categories where they compete are mature slow growth businesses . Neenah area is a great place to live and raise a family.

Executive Administrative Assistant to Vice President
Executive Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) –  Knoxville, TNNovember 1, 2015
Thoroughly enjoyed this position. I worked as the Executive Administrative Assistant to the Vice President of Corporate Transportation with Kimberly-Clark Corporation. The reason I left this position after 15 years is my Mother was sick and I left to care for her.
Pros
Great Atmosphere, great people
Cons
I do not have any Cons for this position

Great place to work and wonderful people to work for
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLOctober 30, 2015
Traveled to several stores in any given day in my territory.
Say hello to the managers, finding out if they had any concerns, letting them know what I would be doing for them that day.
Verify that all our products that were carried by the store were in the store and had proper shelf presence. Replace any missing product or shelf tags.
Sell display, build displays, take displays down.
Find manager and let him/her know what was done.
Pros
Learned a firm foundation to build my merchandising career on
Cons
It was only part time

Fortune 500 Company?
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 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.
