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

    Pros

    Clorox has excellent benefits (education reimbursement, good healthcare plans, stock purchase options, pension plan, competitive 401-K, etc). The Bentonville sales office is large (70+ employees), which means there is substantial opportunity to network, find a mentor and learn from colleagues. The organization is involved in the Bentonville community, as well. They regularly volunteer for things like Habitat for Humanity. Senior leadership hosts annual team building events that not only help employees get to know one another, but also provide room for professional growth. In addition, Oakland (headquarters) supports the office with training opportunities on everything from "Leadership on Paper" to how to be a more effective supervisor. Clorox uses state of the art software (ERM, CRM etc), and is dedicated to staying ahead of the game from a technology standpoint. The company is considered to be a star performer by Walmart, and is often used in special test pilots with the retailer. Clorox definitely has an excellent reputation, and is looked upon as a great place to work in the Bentonville supplier community.

    Cons

    It may be difficult to advance in this organization unless you are willing to relocate to Oakland (or other Clorox locations). The company also places a very high value on college degrees, so even if you have 20 years of experience, you will most likely not be promoted without at least a Bachelors degree. In addition, the company's structure is multi-layered, causing roles to become "siloed". Stepping outside one's bounds is not encouraged. Management structure is muti-tiered, as well. It often takes longer than it should to get an answer, or for decisions to be reached. Positions in Customer Service are viewed as entry-level at the Bentonville office, with the next step being a role in Supply Chain. This separation of duties allows employees to be focused on their job speciality, but limits their exposure to other aspects of the business where they would otherwise increase their knowledge and skills base.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on career path development for the employees you are already invested in. Excessively hiring outside the company hurts morale and makes employees feel less valued. In contrast, an employee that feels you are invested in his or her future will be more dedicated, loyal and committed to helping you make the business a success.
