    Pros

    Very unstructured and allows for a lot of project management. If you like to take initiative then this is your gig.

    Cons

    They have older software and are slow in generally all processes. Employees are archaic in their knowledge of excel and other software.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update systems and communication structure.

    Pros

    Good Company. Solid performance and positive business outlook against other CPG companies. I love the Corporate Values: Work Together to Win v Take Personal Ownership, Stretch for Results v Doing the Right Thing. What I like about Clorox are the people. Our products are made up of great brands, both in Cleaning, Natural Personal Care and Healthcare. As far as how general work gets done, we are consensus driven and strive to inspire action rather than compel. Another positive is the half day Fridays we get during summer season, a huge plus.

    Cons

    The work life balance is kind of there but there is still too much expectation for the bandwidth we have. I would like to see more flexible working arrangements than the standard 9-5 five day workweek mentality. However, the lack of career advancement is what is truly depressing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are only a few functions where employees can truly advance, like Finance, Sales and Marketing. For a company that talks about how people are so critical to success, I disagree based on how many people of value are taken for granted simply because of how many years they've put in, when really it should be the opposite. Also, the pay is sub par, at least when compared to Bay Area wages. That's why it's so critical to ingratiate yourself with management so you can advance in your career or be assigned to a new role without having to actually apply for it. There is injustice in that as it encourages people to play right into office politics, rewarding a specific type of individual.

    Pros

    Loved working here- Don Knauss the best CEO in the country- great visionary leader. He took the company great strides and enhanced the stock price tremendously over the last 10 years.

    Cons

    The company is too Oakland focused. Most of the employees are outside the Bay area, yet some senior leaders forget that. Not a lot of upward mobility unless you move to the west coast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people in the field. Many corporate functional leaders have never even been inside a plant. Trying to create marketing plans or hr policy without understanding what your people do is a disgrace.
