4.4 of 5 stars

Exciting, Challenging, and Rewarding
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of my internship was that I was able to network with so many people in the company and touch so many facets of business from customers, marketing research, packaging, strategy, channel teams, etc..


Downers

The internship is fast paced and you get meaty projects. Sometimes the projects felt too big to get accomplished in 12 weeks.


Advice to Potential Interns

My advice to interns about this potential employer is that if you want to see/work in small town America for a big CPG firm that will give you a ton of opportunity and experience then KC is for you. If you need the big city life then this is not the place for you.


Advice to Management

The only advice I have to management is to define the scope of your projects so that they are not so big that the work is overwhelming.

Fantastic people and projects, cumbersome paperwork!
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

We don't do stupid grunt work. We actually contribute and full-timers make an effort to develop us.


Downers

It's not always clear what Kimberly Clark requires to do something (paperwork), so there's a lot of time wasted trying to dig that up. Lists are good.


Advice to Potential Interns

The people are great. The projects deal with unexciting material, but they move fast and are challenging.


Advice to Management

Pay interns/co-ops more.



Work to streamline process of getting things done. Paperwork is not always clear and it is not clear what paperwork needs to be done.

A really useful co-op experience
Other (US) | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Diversity of projects, actually doing engineering work and not just what my mentor doesn't have time to do. Having ownership of my projects and the ability to work at my own pace with my own ideas and not structured to one way of thinking


Downers

Near the end of summer some fulltime empolyees are tired of answer co-ops questions


Advice to Potential Interns

Come prepared to work hard because this isn't just a typical internship. You will be busy for 8-10 hours everyday doing real work and not just getting coffee for your boss
