I worked at Clayton Homes full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great company, great employees, helpful environment. Longevity, promotes from within, usually. Encourage healthy spiritual, mental and physical health

Cons

Lots of shifts in upper management. Sell or have a good resume. Just moved to paying small salary versus draw from commission, but you better sell a house or two AT LEAST a month to survive. Fred Townsend was a horrible leader, but he's gone now, so morale is doing better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get people that actually believe in what were offering. The people will not buy into the vision if the management don't buy into it first.

    I have been working at Clayton Homes full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    CMH has great people for the most part. The facilities are excellent. The work hours and flexible schedule are definitely a plus. Kevin Clayton is a visionary and is a great businessman.

    Cons

    CMH, at the highest level, has lost touch with the core values that got the company where it is today. Clayton no longer seems to value people with integrity. The only team members that get ahead in IT are the ones that pad key leadership members egos with compliments and praise and they certainly don't disagree with them on things that he or she is passionate about. The 3 team members that have had the most success in IT do disagree with leadership but only on things that are of no material value. These 3 have became the laughing stock among IT team members and business unit leaders. I am embarrassed to be a part of the Clayton IT team. Over the years, these 3 have successfully gotten rid of several key IT team members by whom they felt threatened by. IT spending is so far out of control that fixing it will never be a SNAP.

    Rules are not applied uniformly between women and men. Management and HR are scared to death of women and minorities therefore it is impossible for all groups to be treated fairly and equitably.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You survey team members, look again at the IT surveys and pay attention. There is little to no respect for key leadership members by the IT group. Spending is out of control, talk to middle-management about it to truly get a feel for what is going on in key positions.
