-Open space. You don't get a cubicle and you get to sit anywhere you want
-Telecommuting makes work very flexible
-Summer hours - on Fridays, employees are encouraged to go home early

-Honesty is part of the culture - people want to do the right thing
-You get to do real projects
-Results oriented - You have freedom to do what is necessary to get stuff done due to...
-'Inverted Pyramid' organizational structure - decision-making power comes from lower level employees
-A cafe that emphasizes on healthiness with very reasonable prices
-It's a fortune 500 company with 100 years of history
-In the end, you realize that your resume can truly shine after the internship's done.

Cons

    I have been working at The Clorox Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The brightest marketing minds in the Bay Area in terms of CPG. Very process-driven in a good way, and opportunities to stretch beyond our core competencies into passion projects (eCommerce).

    Cons

    In these large, mature categories a lot of the time we are just focusing on managing profitable growth via share stealing (vs. growing the category). Clorox is cheap when it comes to investing in large bets, and we end up bringing down our investment in new segment launches over time. This translates to slow growth (+2% topline vs. YAG) relative to peers in technology.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to place big bets and go on gut more.


  2. "Excellent place to work and grow your career!"
