    Great training ground for marketing but politics-laden!

    Pros

    Great training for marketers. Good classes and on-the-job training. You work with very smart people, and if you are fortunate enough to get an excellent manager, it is an extraordinary experience. Luckily, even the mediocre managers are fairly good -- you can learn SOMETHING. Clorox marketing jobs are also rotational, so every 1.5-2 years, you are challenged and stretched. Many great California marketers come out of here, and move on to great things. Small/medium sized companies all poach talent from here.

    Cons

    Politics, politics, politics. It's a slower growth company (revenue growth of 3-5% each year) so much of the "competition" comes from inside as they hire smart, driven people who naturally compete. So don't just put your head down and work hard, you also have to do it publicly and find avenues to toot your own horn. After leaving though, I did appreciate the political exposure, as yes, every place has politics... and even Clorox can train you on that!

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate individual differences and figure out how to let uniqueness flourish to build excellent, multi-faceted teams. There's a strong tendency for Clorox culture to fit a certain mold! - to the detriment of the firm and it's ability to think outside of the box and/or push boundaries for exponential growth.
