    I worked at Clayton Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Clayton is growing fast and there are a lot of opportunities for advancement. They pay for performance.

    Cons

    The company was purchased about a year ago and the culture is shifting. Work life balance no longer seems to be a priority of the company.

    I have been working at Clayton Holdings full-time

    Pros

    - great working environment - ambitious colleagues - mortgage finance and securities industry provides itself knowledge - opportunity for projects - promotions are frequent if you apply yourself - continues growth within Fixed Income Services - opportunities for transaction management employees to collaborate with CFIS and even make the transition - employee stock purchasing option - 401k and benefits generally on par with competitors - Flexible PTO (approximately 5 hours per pay period) and pretty much all paid holidays - Not much micro-managing within Fixed Income Services; however, employees are expected to be productive and reach individual and team goals - social gatherings - Radian being the parent company now should open more opportunities

    Cons

    - compensation could be much better - facilities and general office equipment - more travel opportunities inter-office

    Advice to Management

    - Consider more inter-office travel - increase compensation to be more inline with the industry

    Pros

    No shortage of work. Nice facilities.

    Cons

    No future. Promotions based on popularity not merit. Top heavy with too many managers. Bottom line is only importance, non-management employees have zero value.

    Advice to Management

    Quit training your competitions next employee. Make salaries competitve.

    I worked at Clayton Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I racked my brain for a good four minutes, but could only come up with, your colleagues. I met some fascinating people who come from different walks of life. There isn't a pro to provide since this company caused more stress than I experience at any company within the mortgage industry. In order to meet their ridiculous production requirements, I wouldn't take breaks and would feel guilty about taking long lunches or personal calls and I was strong performer.

    Cons

    - MICRO-MANAGEMENT AT IT"S FINEST! - My manager watched the time I walked out of the office and told me I left too early - Unrealistic expectations and awful pay for the amount of work and the quality in which they expect. Don't get me wrong, it can be done and has been done, but there is high turnover for a reason. If they paid employees even close to what they should for this job, you could put up with all the nonsense that comes with it. - No communication with employees, except to tell you that the team as a whole isn't producing and how their margins are being effected.

    Advice to Management

    None- It wouldn't be heeded. Many have tried.

    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.

    I have been working at Clayton Holdings full-time (Less than a year)

    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.
