    Pros

    Great products and brand values
    Will not compromise on safety or quality
    Good people who truly work to move the business forward
    Great business generalists
    Great training ground to learn CPG

    Cons

    Upward mobility is limited for those unwilling to move
    HR support is rarely available Largely website driven 'self help'

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing on driving the brands and profitability
    Work to provide advancement for associates who can't relocate. Company claims to value work/life balance as long as you can uproot family to move frequently

    "Disappointing."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    There are some very intelligent people who want to do good work. For the most part the atmosphere is pretty laid back.

    Cons

    The very intelligent people who want to do good work are hamstrung by bloated and outdated policies and corporate sycophants who get the attention from management who appreciates a "yes person" over quality work and honesty.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people doing good work. You're losing those people every day. Also, when you make promises to employees, keep those promises.

    Pros

    Some of the best people you could ever hope to meet and work with.

    Cons

    Clorox has become rather "Trump-like", meaning the Company will say something demonstrably inaccurate with the firm expectation that they will be believed. Example - "The Company does not force rank its employees". However, in senior management "Calibration" meetings, the conversations will go something like this: "Our ratings distribution is light in the"Opportunity for Improvement" classification. Who's at the bottom of the "Strong" rated group we can drop down?" The only thing worse than force ranking people is doing it and denying you do it. Example - "The Company is firmly committed to driving diversity in its workforce." In the lower ranks of employees, there is significant diversity.
     However, the group photo of the Clorox Executive Committee, at least in terms of ethnicity, resembles a portrait of the Country's Founding Fathers. Example - When announcing fiscal year results and the "Multiplier" based on those results to be used in calculating employees' annual bonuses, a Multiplier of 96% is termed "Strong" and "Solid". To be clear, a factor that's four points below Target is presented by Management as a cause for celebration. Nobody bought it, Benno.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management is, with candor and truthfulness, comes credibility. Give it a try sometime.
