    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 as an intern

    Pros

    Diverse & Bold Approach to Marketing & Consumer Goods. Very dynamic team, very team-oriented and positive work environment.

    Cons

    In such an advanced technological world, and as a Fortune 500 company, the company falls short on a digital connection/approach to connecting with consumers. Overall, still very advanced company.

    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

    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.

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

    Pros

    My experience is within the Brand function, which works cross-functionally with Sales, Insights, R&D, Finance, Supply Chain, Marcomm, among others: Supportive culture; intelligent people; strong career development focus; culture of continuous improvement; access to leadership; excellent work/life balance; flexible working arrangements.

    Cons

    Average compensation (not especially competitive for Bay Area); slow career progression; maternity policy offers near the minimum based on state law; healthcare is low coverage / much of financial burden falls on employees

    I have been working at The Clorox Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The good news is you'll get a lot of attention, support, and resources this summer as you work on your assigned project.

    Cons

    The bad news is you'll never see that level of attention and support again in this Company (and if you're not feeling well supported, welcome to the club).

    Advice to Management

    When you make job offers to former Interns, try to match roles with the person's interests, knowledge, and skills, rather than just plug them into holes that need to be filled.

    Pros

    Diverse background of people and I learned a lot from coworkers. Unfortunately I was only a temporary employee.

    None that I could see of. Most employees seemed quite happy and interested in their projects.

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

    Pros

    A lot of perks - half day summers, commuter share, product freebies, people are very nice and very collaborative

    Cons

    Analysis paralysis, leadership team is not strategic risk takers. Can be quite patriarchal - it is a 100+ year company after all. Sees the big picture, doesn't act - everything boils down to how much you are spending which can be myopic.

    Advice to Management

    It will be hard to attract and retain top talent especially when there are all these other tech companies with the same or better perks to choose from. Management needs to empower their employees, make decisions and not be so penny wise and pound foolish.
