I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I've had great development experiences across various sectors of the business, and in different locations. Lots of responsibility, even when I was junior with the firm. Good resources to help mentor and grow talent within.

Cons

Trend over the last 5-7 years has been to hire externally (and, usually with dubious success.) Add that to much into narrower career ladders as a result of restructures. So, it's been harder to get development into director level and higher as they've been filling the few positions that exist from outside when they do open up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rethink your development roles below MAAP/director--you need to have them. Create a formal development program for high potential talent and then use it judiciously.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with and learn from. place offered a variety of challenges to keep a pulp and paper mill running.

    Cons

    managers were some of the worst. no real experience in making paper or maintaining a mill. just a bunch of kids out of college trying to get a big company name on there resume. Lots of confusion with in the management structure and high turn over. When they closed the mill upper management lied to its employees and said they were 2years out from closing. turn out to be 12 months or less for sum

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    cant give any to them.. they already know it all.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    OK pay... and that's it

    Cons

    Where do I start.. When hiring you for this temporary customer service position they tell you it will be at least a year with a GREAT chance of being hired on directly. While there, numerous employees were being cut every day, after only being there for a few months, for no reason at all except "it's for the good of the company". The management does not take the time to get to know you. They will cut you in a second without thinking about it, and without care of your current situation. They're shifty, dishonest, and indirect. They'll never let you know what's going on with your own job. If you ask questions they'll cut you. You leave work every day not knowing if you'll have a job the next day. Would not recommend!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest, and start actually caring about your temporary employees! They're people too, who need jobs and rely on this one for at least a year! Just because they are temporary, stop treating them like dirt. Follow through with what you tell them during the hiring process. Make them feel welcome, and like they actually matter! Making your employees wonder every day when they'll be the ones cut, is not a way to run a successful business!
