Pros

Collaborative environment
VERY smart people
Recognition of hard work
Interesting work (despite what you might think given their brands :)

Cons

Overall, the people are wonderful, but I have seen some questionable hires in management positions. Clorox very much respects the P&G's and Ivy Leaguers of the world and in my opinion sometimes hires based only on background and not overall fit or contribution. Have only seen it a few times so far.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing! I love the inverted pyramid management style and constant communication to employees.

    Pros

    The training is in-depth and intense, the people are smart.

    Cons

    The threats of being “Walked out of the door for almost any infraction” starts the first day of orientation, I should have run then but thought that I could make a difference. The culture is very political; it’s who you know and a very critical unthankful environment. You will get credit as a whole from corporate meetings, but crew leads, never.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Killing us softly and quietly with paperwork overload and other new things being added that we can do for Clorox. It never ends. the paper work overload while trying to run the line and other such non-sense. Everybody knows that a lot of that paperwork is being pencil whipped, but we don’t stop because it’s the Clorox way.
