    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark

    Pros

    Number of sites to choose from within US

    Cons

    The drive to outsource jobs & the dis-organisation this has created.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your people are your best resource, outsourcing is simply an admission that you cannot manage your people to achieve change.

    Conservative and results oriented. Transitions of leadership limit true investment in your development.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits - on site workout facility, cafeterias, health services, "fun activities" for family and health, half day Fridays in the summer, work from home flexibiliity.

    Cons

    Frequent reorgs and transitions of team leads lead to fragmented individual development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adapt LEAN and teach leaders to create a sense of team.

    Pros

    Great people and good work environment. The cross-function development program gives you the opportunity to experience other departments and shape your career

    Cons

    It's a challenging to be in a personal care company in Venezuela right now. More than half of the portofolio is under price control and there are many limitations with importations.
