    I have been working at Clorox full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedules. Great if you are starting a family. Some roles can work a reduced schedule (3 days a week) to be with families

    Cons

    Slow moving. Bloated. But new exec leadership (CEO/COO/CMO) could shake things up. They talk about empowering Associate Managers and Managers to make decisions, but things are generally decided at the Director level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to feedback and react, do something with it. Follow Don's lead - comes across as a very genuine person.
