    Culture of teamwork
    Work life balance that is pretty good
    Clear vision and strategy from leadership
    Employees are empowered to drive there own career development and to improve there work

    Takes to long for decision to be made (slow corporate processes)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive the strong culture

    I have been working at The Clorox Company full-time

    Pros

    Amazingly smart and nice people

    Clear vision toward getting better and ensuring a diverse work environment

    The kind of place where you can speak your mind and others can too

    Encourage "bringing your whole self to work" and truly live it

    Management at the senior levels is thoughtful, organized, and working toward the right things to make the business successful and people happy

    Cons

    Encourage work/life balance, but not really enforced based on workload given

    All benefits are a bit out of synch with most in the Bay Area - if pay cannot be commensurate, other benefits should be considered more seriously

    Advice to Management

    Would encourage management to consider a broader "less traditional" range of benefits like: cafeteria option, sabbatical options, more generous vacation time, bringing pets to work, etc.

  3. "Solid culture"

    I worked at The Clorox Company full-time

    Pros

    Above-average culture for Fortune 500. In Finance, great place to join out of college and rise within the ranks; Clorox has an outstanding rotational program.

    Cons

    Difficult to join as an outsider. Your prior experience is heavily discounted if you join mid-career.

    I have been working at The Clorox Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    benefits are OK, but their pay very low. They don't value experience or seniority. they rather have inexperience employees to suppress wages.

    Cons

    what seems to be an opportunity, it not. They are all about cost savings and low wages.

    Advice to Management

    care about the back bone of the operations which is the employees making and touching the product every day.
