    Pros

    EMEA has been on the block for years, however they can't get their asking price. So, some people still have jobs. In the US and the rest of the world the businesses are on harvest mode and, recently, Chicago gave tax breaks to move Chicago. Most, not all employees were given an ultimatum, move to Chicago from where you are or leave the company. NO remote or alternative schedules (2 days with family, 3 days in Chicago) are allowed. This was done during the COVID pandemic. That said, some marketers will be allowed to some to keep their jobs if they move others will be given a severance. Additionally, it is a good company if you want to learn how to manage harvest brands, which is a good skill for marketers and TACP professionals to learn and master.

    Cons

    Allegedly, the CEO is known by some as Chainsaw and the Chief Human Resource officer is know by some as Deadwood based on a newspaper article from years ago. Kimberly-Clark is an American company that went from good to great to the gutter in the matter of 30 years. It's been said that it lost its soul in the 80s and then cut everything, but their investors' annual dividends over 40 years. The last true innovation was Pull-Ups in the mid-90s. At times, consumer product experiences, marketing/media/promotional spends and employees have been effected and/or minimalized to maintain the dividends. For the past 3 years, dividend growth has been in the low single digital increase. At this time the only dividend funding is coming from hard core cuts from product efficacy, physical assets (buildings) and employees. Steer clear of this company.
