Kimberly-Clark is a great place to work, however, your experience will depend on which division and/or department you happen to be in. Some departments are tougher for women advancement, like sales or R&E. Unfortunately, transparency is lacking and I see this as a big deterrent for trust creation - how can I trust my manager cares about my career?

    Tons of flexibility! I work from home at least one day a week and know lots of people with unique flex arrangements to fit their lifestyles.

Very hard to balance a family and a role in KC, especially if higher than a Grade 10. Sales is hard for females, very good old boy focused.

    Maternity leave is handled very poorly. When I came back to work they deleted me off the payroll and no one seemed concerned with the issue. After talking to others I learned it's common for HR to make that kind of mistakes after maternity leave. Very stressful

    Improve my compensation

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Great company to start a career, not so great for moms or for advancement as senior leader. Very closed minded in terms of diversity. If you have an accent, you will not fit.

Generally fair treatment. Very meeting heavy which creates challenges for me at times as a working mom trying to block and keep time for pediatrician appointments. Always find a way so far but it can be an added source of stress at times. Some offices offer great versatility of you need it while others are more into face time. Lots of opportinities for new experiences & growth of you prove yourself.

there are few women in high level roles - but even then they are not treated as equals. The good ole boys club is alive and well - and flourishing. There are not benefits that you would expect from a family care company - no child care, limited maternity leave, no break on products, etc.

More and more, women are being hired into senior management roles. However, getting promoted internally as a female to roles such as VP are very rare. Most women who are promoted are kept to middle management. Come into the company as high a level as you can because moving up once you're there will be a challenge.
