    Great employees, good pay and good benefits. Lots of opportunity for overtime $$$

    Cons

    Horrible management! Depressing employee moral with limited job growth. Good ole boy culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't have to threaten and/or lie your employees to get results...most employees are passionate about their job and the Clorox corporate values.

    Pros

    Opportunities to stretch, grow and change if you're willing to try new things. Smart, dedicated people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Clorox full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong brands in midsized categories. Good culture that can be fun but also a bit mundane and boring. Depending on the position, encouraged good work life balance.

    Cons

    A marketing lead company that has some bureaucracy that you have to fight through. Decisions are made very slowly in what can be a fast paced environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seems like senior management get to run different functions and switch jobs every few years, and would prefer to see that at other levels of the organization.

    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.

    Great training in fundamentals of marketing and brand management; smart, driven people who are fun and caring; stable career trajectory if you demonstrate competence
