    Pros

    Clorox is a company that truly cares about its people in many facets of their professional and personal lives. As an entry level finance analyst I have been placed in positions where I can make a meaningful impact on the company. This has created valuable experiences that will help me wherever I go. From a personal standpoint, the company has provided us the opportunities to serve in our local communities through volunteer work.

    Cons

    Not a lot of people are aware of the large portfolio that the company has.

    Pros

    Small enough company that you have direct access to all senior leadership and even some executives. Love the people I work with. Good, meaty, interesting projects and I feel like a true business owner.

    Cons

    Big CPG means things don't always move as quickly as you would like.

    I have been working at The Clorox Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great learn and grow culture with emphasis on work life balance. The people are great and foster a mentoring environment. Perhaps the biggest pro is the fact that the company truly values work life balance. Management can sometimes force employees to work from home some days, given the work is completed of course.

    Cons

    The company size and age shows when process improvements are being implemented or an issue is being worked on to resolve. There can be too many cooks in the kitchen to try to complete a small task. It can cause the work to become a little boring due to the speed, but people tend to enjoy that as they get life balance to offset it.

    Additionally, the compensation may not be comparable to other Bay Area companies as this is a more established company versus high tech up and coming companies. The work/life balance truly is the primary pro that can override all the cons, if that is what you are looking for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work with team culture and continue building on work/life balance, as that has been the most attractive feature in the past year to recruit highly skilled talent, despite having a lower compensation. With the right talent and company culture, the company will undoubtedly continue to thrive.

    I have been working at The Clorox Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are fantastic here at Clorox, and the Marketing Analytics area is extraordinary. This specific team operates as a cutting edge startup with the benefits of large company stability. We were recently awarded the 2016 ANA Genius Award for Analytics Adoption which says it all. The work life balance here is also standout...

    Cons

    Salary is not as high as other bay area competitors (as expected for a large CPG) with limited vacation & stock options for lower level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make benefits more enticing for lower-level employees.
