    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 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

    Pros

    Great company that cares about growing their people and their brands. They have a great inclusion that pulls expertise from all areas. Are willing to pay it forward to employees and the community.

    Cons

    Can be overwhelming at times, lots of hours. Movement can happen slow, but can pay off if patience is a virtue. Can get a bit political as you get hire up, but what company doesn't. Not too many cons to report.

    Advice to Management

    Don't over look people who want to grow with the company.

    Pros

    Great Work/Life Balance. Office hours are not set, so you can be rewarded for "working smart".
    Great career opportunities where you control your own destiny. If you want a senior leader position, you are responsible for making it known and getting it.
    Great Senior leadership that is extremely accessible and willing to listen/help. They have also built lasting, proven strategies that keep the company on a great growth trajectory.
    Great portfolio of products/brands that are category leaders, and that are growing where other brands are dying.

    Cons

    Culture is somewhat passive-aggressive. People do not want to hurt feelings which can slow down progress.
    Because company is 100+ years old, decisions are made very methodically which can cause them to miss the boat on opportunities where competitors go all in immediately.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, with the ability to take more calculated risks.

    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

    Pros

    Great work life balance, true open door policy with management, great people and brands, flexible work hours

    Cons

    Pay could be a little more competitive - we lose some great people due to them leaving for higher pay
