    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 (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Extremely relationship-based, people-oriented and a very cross-functional work environment. I've been working here for about 6 years and had several roles across supply chain functions. I've never seen a more inclusive and work-life balanced company than Clorox! I also love Clorox because they're a company with huge brands that are recognized by everyone. We are much smaller in numbers so you get the opportunity to experience many different roles and interact which senior leaders on a regular basis. This is the perfect environment for me because I am a type A personality.

    Cons

    The fact that we are big brands but small numbers means that we don't have job openings all the time and also means that we must operate extremely lean. Clorox is not shy of utilizing our resources so you typically are challenged at times with keeping all the "balls in the air". Time management, people skills and initiative are valuable skills to have and survive at Clorox; people who struggle typically aren't good at one or more of these things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that people managers continue to put their people first and do not get consumed with the day-to-day. When people managers lose sight of the people, all is lost. I've had some not-so-good managers and I've had some great managers. A great manager in my eyes is an advocate, has a network outside of their function and can help me to develop and stretch my skills.
