    I worked at Clorox (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved working here- Don Knauss the best CEO in the country- great visionary leader. He took the company great strides and enhanced the stock price tremendously over the last 10 years.

    Cons

    The company is too Oakland focused. Most of the employees are outside the Bay area, yet some senior leaders forget that. Not a lot of upward mobility unless you move to the west coast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people in the field. Many corporate functional leaders have never even been inside a plant. Trying to create marketing plans or hr policy without understanding what your people do is a disgrace.

    I worked at Clorox full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Company with a lot of great perks. Learned a lot while I worked here. Company is absolutely willing to make an investment in you whether that be training, etc. Highly respected company within the CPG industry.

    Cons

    Depending where you work in this company meaning location you could have a great experience or a very unpleasant one. Discouraging how HR fails to address issues that could not be more apparent, they are toxic to the work place environment. I watched several people resign (in a small office) in a very short period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are having HR come to your office to evaluate the situation to better it - do something. Actions speak louder than words.

    I worked at Clorox

    Pros

    Many resources available to employees, however, what you can actually use and budgeted depends entirely on the department for which you work

    Cons

    A lot of red tape; decisions are made slowly. If you like a slower paced company, then this company is for you.

    Used to love working for Clorox. New management at my location, not so much. No integrity!

    I have been working at Clorox

    Pros

    Clorox preaches cultural change and high values. I think corporate has great intentions.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, many plants still operate under the 'good old boy' culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clorox really needs to clean house and get some forward thinking employees in the plants.
