      I worked at Clayton Holdings

      Pros

      Flexible schedule, easy to get days off

      Cons

      Management sucks, don’t care if employees have work to do or not as long as they are allowed to work. They get to pay their bills on time while the employees are forced to sacrifice food and utilities. Extremely poor communication. Some of the managers don’t know how to lead people effectively. There is no leadership training for managers. The C level doesn’t care if managers are worthy of the title.

      Advice to Management

      I have been working at Clayton Holdings full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      - Rapidly allowing transition towards better structure and processes - In the post layoff world, really strong people are coming together to identify enduring strategies that will lead to success - New HR is excellent - SVP is committed and engaged - Parent Company hiring key individuals to assist with Operational Improvements / New Technology

      Cons

      - Long history of poor communication down to the UW/Analyst level... results in misperceptions (see other reviews prior to this) - Sales has far different priorities than operations (work in progress) - Some management struggles to understand financials and how to improve margins

      Advice to Management

      - Make a plan and put key people in place to lead movements - Create roles for those capable of pushing this company forward rather than boxing them in - Have an open mind about work from home, extra monitors, and other ‘new’ ideas that would reduce cost and improve morale of the few discontent (see other reviews) - Hold steady: Great client base/relationships. With the right technology, operational improvements, and...

      Former Employee - Vendor Support Specialist in Salt Lake City, UT

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

      Pros

      There are none don't ever work here. It's not worth it.

      Cons

      You'll leave this place with anxiety. Making outbound calls all day. They don't train you properly on the phones & expect you to reach their expectations. So ridiculous. I wish I never worked here. There were plenty of times where I couldn't fill an order because no one is going to drive in the middle of no where for a 20 dollar order. & then got in trouble for it.

      Advice to Management

      Chill out & understand that you need to train people more effectively so they can do their job. & not jump down people's throats when they don't reach their hours due to uncontolled circumstances.

      Pros

      work from home, 401K match is good

      Cons

      They say this position is for Jumbo Credit Underwriter however it is post closing position and they have dual monitors but only one screen that spreads out to both monitors. They will start you with 10 day training and if you score below 8 they let you go. They also calculate your speed. The job is to analyse the file and input data so you have to bookmark the entire jumbo file that have over 1000 pages sometimes then...

      Advice to Management

      Get triple monitors for everyone for everyone or at least dual monitor screens. you are loosing professionals if you have 8 as an average score should be 7. as speed picks up with time.
