    I will never leave Red Clay!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsI've worked at many companies in my career and have never worked for one who truly lives by their vision statement as much as Red Clay does. "Doing what's right and fair for our company, employees, and clients". The culture at Red Clay is all about teamwork and collaboration and everyone legitimately likes one another and treats each other like family! We have a LOT of fun together and this even comes across in our client engagements. They see how we respect each other and our close bonds, which I think helps ensure them that we will do what it takes to get the job done and done well! I also love that the management follows a "failure is not an option" motto and they do their best at hiring individuals who follow that motto in their own lives.

    ConsNot really a con but for those considering employment at Red Clay, be prepared to work your ass off! There is a lot of time on the road and you have to truly love what we do and love the company to enjoy working here.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Red Clay Consulting is a great company to gain experience ONLY.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Pros- Great Work Environment
    - Friendly co-workers and management
    - Easy access to upper management
    - Interesting industry with a lot of client opportunities
    - Fun company culture
    - Great vacations
    - Great parties
    - Great experience for recent grads

    Cons- THE PAY. Do NOT expect to be paid the industry standard for any position at this company. EVERYONE is low-balled.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you truly want to do what's right and fair for your people, stop low balling them or else you'll continue to lose them to other companies who may not be as fun, but show they value their employees with their paychecks.

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

    Simply awesome!!

    Technical Consultant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Pros- Small company, close knit
    - High visibility
    - Great recognition
    - Plenty of learning opportunities for people willing to put in the extra effort
    - No politics, no drama
    - Amazing company outings, holiday parties and group gatherings

    Cons- High visibility also means slackers are easy to spot. If you're not up for hard work and pulling your own weight - this is NOT the place for you.
    - Entry level training program may seem daunting for the weak of heart. Steep learning curve, but guidance and mentoring is plenty along the way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    Embodies teamwork and helping others succeed both internally and in the community

    We're AWESOME!

    Managing Partner (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsAs a leader of the organization I truly can't say enough fantastic things about Red Clay Consulting. I love working here, I love our team, i think that everyone's voice is heard and we have a truly collaborative environment. My door is always open - if there is something you don't like or aren't happy with, I want to know.

    ConsAs we continue to grow, we definitely will struggle with maintaining our corporate culture of accountability, responsibility, awesomeness, openness, recognition, and being yourself while instituting policies and procedures to provide some needed structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs part of the leadership/management team, I would just advise us to continue to identify and recuit awesome self-starters who really want to make a difference and be heard.

    Red Clay is great!

    (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Pros- Great culture - the company is hard working, but encourages individuality and focuses on enjoying the people you work with as well.
    - Recognizes people's individual strengths and focuses on work that play to those strengths.
    - Promotes and provides training and development.
    - Upper management is accessible and approachable.
    - Opportunity to earn bonuses each year.
    - Compensation and benefits.
    - Really great people.
    - Company lives by their values of doing the right by employees and clients.

    ConsAs this small company is growing quickly, there have been some growing pains in trying to balance a small/flexible company culture with the need to put additional standard policies in place.

    I saw some comments regarding lack of training, and dependency on projects for employment, but that has definitely not been my experience here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    More than just a company, Red Clay is a family!

    Technical Consultant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Pros- Management runs a very client AND employee oriented business practice. As an employee, your best interest is always in mind.
    - Easy access to upper management! They're literally right down the hall
    - The energy industry is solid! So long as people need energy to power their homes and businesses, energy companies will need software to manage data.
    - No office politics!
    - GREAT company vacations, outings, and parties!
    - Potential raises and bonuses every year!
    - Fun is actually a part of the company culture!

    Cons*Note* These "Cons" are really double-edged swords that can help or hurt you depending on the type of person you are.

    - Extreme visibility because the company is small. You must always carry your weight.
    - Cannot work from home very much
    - You HAVE to be a team player. Lone Wolf syndrome will not cut it here.
    - Office can get crowded at times (expansion or new office coming soon)

    Advice to Senior ManagementPLEASE update the company registry or provide crystal clear instructions on when to enter extensions when someone is calling the company number. Thanks!

    Other than that, keep up the great work!

    Stay away if you are a new college graduate; work only suitable for experienced hires.

    Technical Consultant (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Pros*Small company allows easy access to upper management
    *Good connection with Oracle
    *Central Atlanta location
    *Industry experts in Oracle Utilities' Meter Data Management (OU MDM)

    Cons*No training program for new employees
    *Low pay for the hours made to work
    *High turnover rate
    *OU MDM is a saturated market; company needs to expand to other modules
    *Very volatile work environment (Employment depends on projects available)

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't chew through new employees if you plan to get rid of them once a project is completed. Install an internship program and weed out folks "BEFORE" you extend them an offer.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
