I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time for 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 for 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.
