      Great Place to Work

      Pros

      A lot of amazing resources and opportunities to advance in your career. There is a great company culture that encourages taking pride in your work and building something that you can be proud of.

      Cons

      Limited by location in the southern part of the US. Great if you want to work on the East and West Coast and some of the major cities. (I.e. Chicago, D.C.)

      Improvement Needed Throughout

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Stable and established backlog of projects, good healthcare and competitive 401k benefits, neat project history and clients. Messaging provides good sense of pride in your work.

      Cons

      Very traditional, "good ol boys" type of company. Long hours with no recognition or overtime pay. The workload can be unsustainable and little support or training is provided. Vacations, holidays, life events and family are second to this job. Burnout is guaranteed and you are made to feel bad for using your standard PTO and sick time. Very dismal outlook for potential growth or opportunities, especially for minorities. Promotions are standardized and not based on performance or grit, but conformance. Many difficult senior leaders to work with, basic respect for junior employees is nonexistent. There is mixed messaging about how Clark sells themselves that do not match how employees are treated. The marketing proposal process needs much improvement.

      Old Fashioned and Falling Behind

      Feb 8, 2021 - Finance in Washington, DC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Friendly people and some good old-fashioned company perks like solid healthcare and a decent 401k match. Other old-fashioned perks include wedding presents, baby showers, birthday cupcakes, free Clark stuff. There are definitely opportunities to advance in certain departments, if you want to put in the facetime and exist to the current Clark “standard.”

      Cons

      Strict hours and face time requirements that remain indifferent to people's family commitments, health concerns, the actual work product of employees and the changing workplace outside of Clark, yes, even in COVID times. The initial response to Covid was not good, to put it mildly and pushed a message of indifference to employees from management. Pay is not as competitive as it should be for the region. Pockets of bad management exist and drive people out, along with high turnover in general. Management seems to not care and would rather just pay to retrain a new hire. Good people are let go due to overhead costs while poorer employees are maintained.
