      Good work-life balance, but slow pace and low power in R&D

      Jan 6, 2021 - R&D Scientist in Pleasanton, CA

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Predictable 40hr/wk schedule with flexible WFH, half day Fridays are great - Good middle management (group managers) that cares about you genuinely - Many opportunities to move around the organization - Good culture, I felt my coworkers respected each other and got along well

      Cons

      - Marketing runs the show, so technical advances in R&D are undervalued - Very slow pace of projects, slow and ever-changing decision making at Leadership Team level - While there are many opportunities to move around the organization, promotions seem to heavily weight time in role more than effectiveness - Overall, I do not think scientists feel a great deal of purpose in their work here

      Pros

      Simply the best company that I’ve ever worked at. Tremendous leadership, great work flexibility and a strong focus on inclusion and diversity, plus amazing brands. 401(k)+++

      Cons

      Decision making can be slow at times and hope will improve. Pay is less than competitive but is balanced with work flexibility and great culture.

      Excellent place for the right person; Outstanding people & culture

      Jun 9, 2019 - Associate Marketing Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Coworkers have a positive attitude and want to excel. Leaders care about people and health of the business. Great extracurricular events for marketing teams. Plenty of opportunities to receive training (online, self-paced and in-person). Typically assigned a variety of projects that give insight into other areas of the company (creative, sales, supply chain, etc.). Company is very self-aware and constantly seeking to improve the already strong culture and overall work experience. Heart of the company is generous and community oriented with a lot of community-centered efforts in place to get involved with.

      Cons

      "The Clorox Way" is alive and well, though the company is working hard to shake it. Leaders in the company try not to require a specific way to do things, but will inevitably revert to requiring that tasks are accomplished a specific way. A lot of "unspoken" expectations inherent in "The Clorox Way" that can be tricky for new AMM's to navigate. It can become annoying for an "outside the box" thinker, as the boundaries set in place at the company seem to be meant to drive standardization (or "efficiency") but instead stifle diversity of thought and creativity. Some leaders were well developed as AMM's, but not as future leaders which can affect how an AMM's experience varies from one boss to another. Company is heavily reliant on data- almost too much, and at the cost of quick decision making. Decisions tend to require a lot of deep thought/analysis before action- scared to fail which hinders what could be an innovative and nimble culture.
