    Pros

    Work life balance is taken seriously here. We have half day Fridays in the summer months and management is very flexible about time you may need away from the office to be with your kiddos.

    Cons

    They recently got rid of cash awards. We still have annual bonus targets but we used to be able to nominate someone for a (smaller) cash bonus on the spot. That was a little de-motivating. Also, it is harder to get promoted in a support function vs. a business unit function.

    Advice to Management

    Have more defined career paths for those in support functions.

    Pros

    Great culture, good benefits, good attempt at work/life balance, dedicated and loyal employees

    Cons

    Heavily outsourced IT department with a very top heavy reporting structure - very few promotions form within the IT department - Promotions that do occur are generally sr managers and above, promotions at lower levels are primarily unheard of. Pay not in alignment with economy -

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and promote from lower grade levels. Recognize accomplishments and allow employee input on their development path

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Demanding projects. Health benefits. A drive to be more transparent. Open to movement to different job functions.

    Cons

    Typical corporate politics but common elsewhere. Redundant team meetings. R&D has less influence on decision making but expected for a consumer goods company.

    Pros

    Experienced scientists and technicians who can answer so many questions. Great place to learn technical skills as a contract employee.

    Cons

    maybe it was just when I was here, but there seems to be a high turnover rate of employees and new faces. So many different projects all at once.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more temps.

    Pros

    The part time job has very flexible schedule. We normally work 3 hours per day, 2-3 days per week, depending on the project. The company provided training so no experience was required. The panel leaders were very professional and easy to communicate with. The group of people were very fun to work with.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything that I didn't like about working for the Clorox Consumer Learning Center. It was a great experience. Too bad we had to relocate out of state.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance (for those disciplined enough to keep the two balanced) - work is interesting, engaging.
    Good overall benefit plans/options for immediate and future needs.

    Cons

    Plenty of work to do w/limited resources and short timelines sometimes results in re-work due to not investing the appropriate time/resource in initial effort.
