    I have been working at The Clorox Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good company. I have learned a lot, met great people and enjoyed every single perk they offered me. This is definitely a GREAT company to add to your resume, especially for a young adult right out of college!

    Cons

    Not much room for growth for Administrative Assistants. The role of Executive Assistant is far and few. For this to be such a big company, its not many EA's. Another con...Admins and EA's are not compensated well at all.

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

    Pros

    Great initial hiring package, 401k if you can make it to 5 years

    Cons

    Lack of career advancement for true diligent workers who have no interest in the political game, recognition/promotion based on either lengths of service or perception rather than ability and quality of demonstrative performance.

    Advice to Management

    Retaining top talent is more important than hiring them

    I worked at The Clorox Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Clorox has many talented individuals working in R&D. Getting to learn from the scientists and assist with product development gave a sense of pride and fulfillment. Overall the people at Clorox were very friendly and the company offers a lot of perks as well.

    Cons

    I was a contractor, so not technically a Clorox employee. Many of the employee perks are not available to contractors(as may be expected) and my department did not seem interested in giving me opportunities for advancement at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make sure contractors feel valued and included

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

    Pros

    Stable, slow growth, conservative. Good brands. Struggles on how to grow. Too many VPs that are too conservative. They operate to not to lose vs how to win.

    Cons

    Not consistent, penalizing, not transparent or clear. Hires sr position from the outside vs promoting from within. Surprises people on performance. The same is true for potential.

    Advice to Management

    Don't penalize out of the blue when you have a bad year
