Felt like an outsider because everybody who worked there went to High School together.

Pros

If you are in with the good ole boy network then you will have a wonderful experience. If not, your experience will be horrible. Not a good place for a Northerner or an outsider to work.

Cons

It is a managers place to work from a standpoint of HR. Company's HR policy is heavy favored for the manager and not the employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the good ole boy network and get some talent in there. Make clayton a melting pot. The un-welcoming of outsiders will catch up eventually.

    Pros

    experience, and flexibility with schedule

    Cons

    center staff is viewed as bottom dollar, work them harder and harder is the motto. was there 2.5 years and couldn't get cross trained because the center was always understaffed and trying to get as many donors though in as little amount of time that they could.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you center staff work darn hard and you need to recognize their efforts, stop looking at bottom dollars costs and give them opportunities

    Pros

    A good location in the matter of cost of living. Nice weather in North Carolina. Close to three very good universities.

    Cons

    Overstaffed in R&D, and too many layers in management. Communication is slow, and morale is low. People feel unsafe due the company is always on sale.

    No opinion of CEO
