    Pros

    nothing to say good about this company.

    Cons

    worst management. too much of micro managing. Managers are not honest with the employees. worked there for 8 years and no promotion or growth.

    Advice to Management

    Don't listen to what the mangers says. Think from employee side too. Make sure the work is done on time with out doing the micro managing.

    Pros

    You honestly work with some very intelligent people at Clayton and the atmosphere and operational management could not be better.

    Cons

    The pay is poor and the overall compensation is even worse.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure if it is feasible to compensate employees better, but if it is, you should strongly consider it.

    Pros

    Strong commitment to producing a quality work product

    Cons

    Poor organization, lack of adequate training, setting unrealistic and virtually impossible production expectations. Micro-manage and threaten termination almost daily based on arbitrary and fundamentally unfair grading of work product. Treatment of employees borders on discriminatory and abhorrent. Belief in public shaming" to "motivate" team members and hold each other accountable for work product. Team leaders and management are not leaders, lack skills necessary to promote a positive and enjoyable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and promote talent based on merit, not cronyism. Utilize talented people and place them in positions where they can contribute and thrive.

    Somewhat flexible hours depending who the lead is.

    Cons

    Poor forecasting on work, poor communication from mid level and 1st level of management. Lack of realistic expectations to complete transactions. most of lead staff totally disrespectful. No work consistency.

    Positive feedback, for management to learn positive feedback techniques and communication without belittling their transactional employees. Teach leads to be respectful to staff.

    Pros

    I worked at Clayton for a total of 6 years. What I enjoyed the most with the opportunity to work on many different projects. There was ample opportunities with face time with managers, VPs and the CEO. Everyone was very friendly. Benefits were good.

    Cons

    They seem to hire a lot of young people, for some this was even their first job outside of college.

    Pros

    They are very flexible with your working hours and depending on who your lead is you can have a couple of laughs while working.

    Cons

    If you don't keep on your lead for work when it's slow you will quickly be on the list of employs on call for when there is work.

    Advice to Management

    The employs that show the willingness and consistent work maybe there should be an option to keep them on as a core per manner team vs staying as contract employees.
