    Pros

    I'm at a loss... maybe the somewhat fun holiday parties? Although it was widely known that the raffle giveaways were rigged by HR.

    Cons

    I worked here for 5+ years, and never once had a paid day off. If you want/need to take a day off, your paycheck will reflect it, as they don't provide any paid vacation or sick days. Also, we were instructed to work extra OT hours when they were busy (to help this shady company please their clients) to make up for the times when they are "slow". Because when they are "slow", you will be sitting at home and will not be paid.

    And this sometimes happens for weeks (or months) at a time. And they don't have the courtesy to tell you what's going on, they keep stringing you along with talks of "this project is about to start next week".... yada yada, just so that you don't quit, as you sit at home without a paycheck still thinking you are an "employee".

    If you are hired at Clayton as an underwriter or QC, don't expect to be guaranteed full time hours. You are considered "transactional", which really means "contract". So even if they give you a desk in their Tampa office, make sure to not leave anything special on it, as it may be a few weeks before you see that desk again, if at all.

    Clayton has no isssue with luring people in from other companies while pressuring them to make the jump, especially while asking them to forgo the "2 week rule". But before you jump over to hell, and burn your bridges with your previous employer, please realize that it's fine to them if you sit at home for weeks at a time while making no money. They don't care as long as you're available when they need you to make money for them. Also, Clayton's "health care" offering is the exact same if you went out on the private market. So although they "offer health care", expect to pay $300/ month for an individual, for health only. And the 401K they tout is 100% out of your pocket, they do not provide any sort of a company match.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "good old boys club" management strategy. Stop allowing staffing directors to make misogynistic and racist decisions.

    Pros

    Some what flexible work schedule and great co-workers.

    Cons

    Just about everything else; bad compensation, the job itself is incredibly dull, upper management does not care about the employees just their bottom line.

    Pros

    Like others have said-nothing comes to mind.

    Cons

    Good old boys in full effect. You have to realize, you are just a worker bee making the rich, richer. Work is not rocket science. But, if you do work hard and take pride in a good job, don't expect any bonuses, encouragement, etc. Women and minorities are treated like, well, nothing. The reason why this company can pull in people, is because of the hourly, or salary an employee receives. Tampa is notorious for being a place with plenty of jobs, but they pay sucks. So, this company gets away with treating its employees horribly while paying them a little above what other companies in the area are paying.

    Advice to Management

    None-these type of people won't change. And, to those reviewers who gave this company rave reviews while downing those who have issues with management, etc-you all are obviously the little employees who will do anything for a dollar. We all know the type. Despicable. To those with any sense, leave and find better for yourself. They can keep this mess of a company.

    Pros

    Great work environment! Excellent people and for the most part engaged and qualified management. Lots of opportunities for those willing to work hard. Very competitive pay and excellent PTO and health benefits.

    Cons

    Nothing negative, however, in response to the negative reviews on this site and others. In my experience at Clayton, the unhappy employees were the ones who were unable or unwilling to work hard and achieve. It does not surprise me that you would have negative reviews, most likely when you get fired from your next engagement for gross incompetence, you will be posting the same review then as well. Time to grow up!

    Advice to Management

    The existing long term file review project in Denver has some of the most qualified QC and management in the Denver office. Leverage this expertease across other engagements for continued success with current clients and attracting new opportunities.

    Pros

    Strong parent company backing, work life balance, new offices

    Cons

    Acts like a start up company with poorly defined direction. Human Resources is clueless as to policies. Teams are not integrated. IT is poorly managed and slow. Pay is low. Changes are constant with management and long term goals are typically not followed through.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is appalling and needs to improve across all business units. Invest in your employees and increase pay and job tracks to keep talent. Try to keep changes to a minimum as it is unsettling.

    Pros

    The staff is a very tight-knit community and they really make sure people are ready before promoting them. They also promote people often and recognize hard work.

    Cons

    Lots of downsizing and lay-offs while I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Be more communicative with people
