    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay when you consider the cost of living for the area.
    Nostalgia because this corporate environment is out of 1982.

    Cons

    The company makes decisions at a glacial pace.
    "Engagement" programs and LEAN are buzzwords not reality
    All roads lead to Neenah.
     Expect another round of layoffs when the 2015 goals are missed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most KC management is from the old guard, it really is still a good old boys club things are earned with years of service not skills or merit. Give answers not lip service, if you're going to just dodge questions why bother taking them?

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

    Pros

    Stable company
    Good salaries and benefits
    Well known and widely used products

    Cons

    Former performance based corporate culture replaced by inefficient micromanagement
    Onerous tracking of daily activities rather than focusing on results
    Require employees to submit reports ad nauseam instead of being in the field being productive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to the former successful system based on relationship building and bottom line results
    Eliminate bureaucratic tasks that take time away from customers, and closing actual sales
