Good at pretending
Supply Chain (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WIDecember 5, 2018
Too much in the way of doing a your job effectively: disconnected management, too many HR tasks, political. KC is riding the coattails of excellent people, not excellent policies and structure. Managers are hyper focused on appeasing their superiors and handling their own accountabilities - they pretend to promote building talent but its all faulty HR policies that make things sound nice on the surface but EVERYONE is stressedl and trying to do more work than they can handle.... and then they force rank you against each other every year. KC has gutted the integrity of its infrastructure. People are not valued for experience anymore - only "potential". This was openly stated by leadership. The company is not growing and has little reason to expect it would ever come up with any new innovation to generate any growth though they pretend that it is the main focus when speaking to employees. It's NOT the company it used to be. Stock prices are overvalued and it won't be long before the house of cards topples.

Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WIDecember 3, 2018
Kimberly-Clark allows employees to work with managers to find a work program that works best for you and the team. Management differs by department, but open communication will go a long way with setting up a schedule you enjoy.
Pros
FWA program, Mobile Work Spaces
Cons
Product line, detached mission

As a safety professional no two days are the same. It is important to be flexible in this role because you never know what you will walk in to every morning.

Healthcare is poor

I was there to work and make a living.
Machine Operator and Safety leader (Former Employee) –  Loudon, TNNovember 26, 2018
employees would not train you, based on what they thought of you. so your advancement would be very slow, if you advanced at all. They had a pay scale starting at level 1 thru level 4, with pay ranging between 13 dollars an hour to 20+ dollars and hour for level 4. I stated out with 13 dollars an hour, my partner had been there for 9 years and he only made 2 dollars more than me, He was a level 4, they just didn't pay him for it.
Pros
its a job, but a new CEO just took over, maybe things will change.
Cons
low pay and no training system for advancements

Master Data Associate (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WINovember 20, 2018
I would highly recommend Kimberly-Clark as an employer to anyone. As are other businesses right now, they face their struggles which puts a lot of pressure on the employees.

Great place to work and start your marketing career
Associate Manager (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WINovember 17, 2018
The people are great here. The culture is one of the best especially for work-life balance. Only con is projects vary by teams and you may get stuck on a team that doesn’t have amazing projects to work on. However, moving within marketing is something that is done often, so you won’t be stuck for long.

Location can be an issue but you make work friends pretty quick here and the next major city is a car drive away.

No longer the quality focused company it used to be.
Packaging Manager (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WINovember 12, 2018
Kimberly-Clark, (KC), used to give a sense of security in return for hard work and commitment, but within the last four years, this has changed. Loyalty and delivered performance can be trumped by middle management decisions to replace any team member at anytime. Cost savings is now the clear key objective, even at the cost of product quality.
Prior to this change four years ago, employees were encouraged to develop the best products cost effectively. Their could grow and advance their careers with on going training. Now the budget cuts and cost pressures have nearly eliminated these opportunities.
Pros
Working with some good people worldwide, and international travel exposure.
Cons
Vindictive middle management appears to operate unchecked.

Would not bank on the Kimberly Clark of today.
Maintaining Hand Towel Conveyers and Unitizers (Former Employee) –  Loudon, TNNovember 10, 2018
I was a long term employee of Kimberly Clark and with the new way the management team is now, if they suddenly get one of their favorites ruffled, you can lose your job. I am 58 and not far from retirement, but now out of a job because the pets get mad when you tell to do there job.Just not right, or a good way to operate a business.
Pros
Pay is fair
Cons
Plays favorites

Kimberly Clark has gotten away from taking care of their employees.
Operating Technician (Current Employee) –  Owensboro, KYNovember 4, 2018
Managers only focus on the people they deem "important" and treat everyone else like they are replaceable. It wasn't always like this but with the new management team the company has gotten away from caring for the people that keep the business running.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Healthcare and management that can't be trusted.
