Pros

The people at Clorox are by far its greatest asset. One would be hard pressed to find a better collection of talented, intelligent and engaged employees at any large company. Salary, benefits and work life balance are on par if not better than other companies I have worked for. Clorox also encourages cross functional development.

Cons

If you do not fit the Clorox mold then you will not move up the leadership ladder. If you are not technically sound or struggle in your position you will be weeded out very quickly. This company is full of high performers so you had better bring your “A” game. Moving up as a young scientist isn’t terribly difficult but with the limited number of management roles it’s extremely difficult to move out of a Senior Scientist role.

Advice to Management

Way too many processes in place. Projects move ridiculously slowly due to the company being so risk averse. Clorox needs to trust the experts (the scientist) and give teams more decision making ability if they every hope to speed up commercialization.

    Pros

    - Great employees who are smart and want to do a good job
    - People are engaged in their projects
    - Great brands
    - Management WANTS you to be successful

    Cons

    - Pleasanton is a bit too far from the city to be easy to commute to from SF
    -If you don't have thick skin, don't apply. Feedback is continuous so that doesn't work for some. However, it works great for others.


  2. "Good relationship-oriented company. Many very good-hearted people work here."

    Pros

    Work life balance. Strong, ethical company that emphasizes humility, compassion, and high standards; doing the right thing and serving the community.

    Cons

    Conservative, risk averse style. Lots of politics involved in business decisions and personnel decisions such as promotions. Promotions don't seem to be based on how smart one is or how hard one works.

    Advice to Management

    Connect more with all employees, not just a few of them.
