    Good people and company but cheap and low comp for Bay Area

    I have been working at Clorox full-time

    Pros

    Smart people, great work/life balance, focus on people and training, stable company

    Cons

    Always "cost" cutting, cheap
    Compensation is not competitive for being in the Bay Area (golden handcuffs via long term comp as you get further up)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be competitive for the bay area/tech and not vs. other CPG

    I have been working at Clorox

    Pros

    + relatively easy to move upwards in Finance
    + most of the people I've worked with (in Finance) are open-minded

    - outdated systems/IT issues
    - can be more difficult for folks coming externally into Clorox

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example. If you want your team to be more Agile, support any improvements in the right direction.

    Pros

    Great for employees with families, mostly reasonable work-life balance. High expectations and standards. While traditionally influenced, Clorox has made forward-looking moves in creating a more casual, interactive workplace.

    Cons

    As with any med-large company, cultures and management capabilities can vary greatly even within same functions. Tendency towards perfection over speed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on growing the business, root out over-processing and politics. Implement and reinforce standard management expectations.
