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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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