    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.

    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent mentor/mentee system and co-ops do actual work that impacts products. 50 plus co-ops at the staff location in Neenah means great networking!

    Cons

    Location is not optimal. Mill locations do not many co-ops to interact with on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand recruiting to other schools outside the Midwest.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    KC has a great work-life balance. Even as an intern you can take time off if needed. The compensation is average for engineering interns. I performed a lot of meaningful projects which had clear impact on the business. I would defiantly recommend working as a Co-op for them

    Cons

    I had some issues with the HR department between my two co-op terms. Took a long time to receive an offer and only happened when I received an offer from another company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The HR department could do a better job of giving out offers in a timely manner as well as communicating with previous Co-ops.

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing. Everyone is very laid back and friendly. Kimberly-Clark is the best place I have worked so far. I would recommend the co-op to any college student looking to really learn skills that will launch them in their future career.

    Cons

    I have no cons. Overall it's a great place to work. Kimberly-Clark truly understands the value of "life-work balance".
