    Pros

    Good culture, work/life balance, and competitive pay. It's an up or out organization, you must always be thinking about your next move. This is good for professional development, but sometimes bad for business as people are constantly moving around, not learning enough about that particular business unit.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up in salary unless you're promoted. High level of workload.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people in positions longer than 1-2 years and work more carefully on succession plans. I've had many people move off our business and then I have to get people up to speed quickly, just to have them leave in a year.

    I have been working at The Clorox Company full-time

    Pros

    Amazingly smart and nice people

    Clear vision toward getting better and ensuring a diverse work environment

    The kind of place where you can speak your mind and others can too

    Encourage "bringing your whole self to work" and truly live it

    Management at the senior levels is thoughtful, organized, and working toward the right things to make the business successful and people happy

    Cons

    Encourage work/life balance, but not really enforced based on workload given

    All benefits are a bit out of synch with most in the Bay Area - if pay cannot be commensurate, other benefits should be considered more seriously

    Advice to Management

    Would encourage management to consider a broader "less traditional" range of benefits like: cafeteria option, sabbatical options, more generous vacation time, bringing pets to work, etc.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance
    Great people
    Not ego-driven
    Everyone willing to help

    Cons

    Lack of career support/growth
    Pay is not consistent with other companies
    We are asked to be BOLD and cut costs when possible but seems like the company is willing to spend on non-essential items.
    If you are not favored by your manager, it will be very difficult to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more money into us, yes, that means increasing our pay. I think Clorox does a great job of projecting our image, but internally it doesn't reflect what you are putting out.

    "Solid culture"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at The Clorox Company full-time

    Pros

    Above-average culture for Fortune 500. In Finance, great place to join out of college and rise within the ranks; Clorox has an outstanding rotational program.

    Cons

    Difficult to join as an outsider. Your prior experience is heavily discounted if you join mid-career.
