If you want to make sure that you absolutely will have no job security, this is the company for you!

Underwriter (Former Employee)

I worked at Clayton Holdings as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsPayroll was processed in a timely manner.

ConsTrainers provided by company were inefficient and unsuccessful in assessing skill level possessed by new hires. HR employees were rude and frequently gave out inaccurate information.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire good people who understand your business, eliminate favoritism, quit stressing
contractor (transactional) versus employee (permanent) benefits, since contractors have no benefits other than a paycheck.

Just a job; not a career.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Clayton Holdings full-time

Pros-Good bonuses for certain projects
-Perks (dinners/company events)
-Great location (downtown)
-Young workforce
- Earn trust and you will be rewarded with challenging opportunities.

Cons- Those in leadership positions are rarely leaders (merely project managers).
- Hires unqualified individuals, leaving the qualified to pick up the slack.
- Lack of integrity brings down morale. Unfortunately management is inexcusably numb in seeing right vs. wrong.
- Production valued over quality.

Advice to Senior ManagementLike successful companies, put an effort into determining who the leaders within your company are (new blood is needed). Through these leaders, stand behind a revamped mission statement that expects excellence and integrity on a daily basis and accepts nothing less. Seek out those that will stand for this common vision as opposed to those that will take the path of least resistance. Value long term success and sustainability over short-term gains.

Not for everyone, great for some, good for others, "so so" for most.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Clayton Holdings full-time for more than 5 years

ProsVery talented co-workers

You can learn a lot because their are really smart people here

You can not beat the health benifits of Clayton; it is why people stay. Rarely does HR have a hand in retaining employees - all due respect to HR professionals, but it's been my experience for this to be the case.

Good IT systems; they didn't go down much and when they did the people were on top of it fast

ConsThe company does not really translate professional growth into a career path

Salaries are not competative.These people will pay the going rate or less, therefore they do not take the actual intellectual value of employees in to account.

Micro-management is common across the company

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep checking in on VP and Director level management to see if you really need them. There are a lot of Chiefs in this company

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Management is very short sighted, does not value employees.

Foreclosure Analyst (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Clayton Holdings as a contractor for less than a year

ProsGood money
Co workers are friendly and nice
Your direct supervisors are usually helpful and want you to succeed.

ConsMicromanagement of employees makes the employee having to account for every minute of the day, not an efficient use of time.
Quality Control (QC) are not trained well and there is no cohesive direction on quality between reviewers.
People work for the money not for the job or career. Most people can't wait to get out of there after 8 hours.
Not given any feedback on your work--job expectations not given until you make mistakes

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement has to show employees that they are valued. Little awards showing that they are good in some way would show a lot of goodwill and make people like their job.
If you hire people let them work efficiently and don't mircomanage people for every minute of their day.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
