    I worked at Clayton Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong Parent Company in Radian but could also be the demise of the company. Pay is average. Nice office building.

    Cons

    The Clayton side has been lead by sub-prime mortgage "professionals" that are coming back after the market collapse. This only results in a very cutthroat management style and extremely poor leadership and development in staff. There are constant layoffs due to the parent having to justify the existence of the operations to shareholders. They have cut the most talented employees and retained the staff with lower capabilities solely for costs. The reputation in the market place is not great with known reporting errors and quality control issues.

    Advice to Management

    Time to clean house of the sub-prime "talent" you have allowed to drive Clayton into the ground. Make decisions that actually improve the operations of the organization opposed to making Clayton a bare-bones file review branch of Radian.

    Pros

    Great people, amazing office spaces. Opportunities for advancement for those who work hard and prove themselves.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover at the ELT level. The company has stalled and is awaiting direction from the leadership team. Where is Clayton going? The operational teams are ready, lead them forwards.

    Advice to Management

    For the ELT - Share your vision. Be sincere, be open in your communication. Be honest. Drive us forward with innovative thinking and commit to decisions that are made.
