    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

    Pros

    I'm proud to work for a company that makes and sells products I use and respect. Also appreciate great work life balance. Clorox is doing this right.

    Cons

    We are sometimes slow with technology. We've come a long way but could still improve.

    I have been working at Clorox full-time (more than 8 years)

    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.

    Former Employee - Sensory Panel Member in Pleasanton, CA

    I worked at Clorox part-time (more than an year)

    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.

    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

    Agility in people and processes
