    I have been working at Kimberly-Clark full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    KC was the first company i worked for out of University. My original plan was to work there for 5 years and then diversify. When I got to five years, i couldn't think of a single reason to leave. It hires and retains great people. People who care about one another and the the brands we represent. There are plenty of opportunities to learn & grow, it values work-life balance, flexible work arrangements and most of all, it's people.

    Cons

    let's be honest, Mississauga isn't the most desirable location in Canada.

    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".

    Great company with nice people

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark

    Pros

    Very relaxed culture for a large corporation. Employees are very nice and supportive of one another. 1/2 day summer Fridays are nice.

    Cons

    Very different feel across brands. One brand may do things one way while another brand may do the complete opposite. Hard to figure out what the company strategy is vs. individual brand strategy as a result.
