    Pros

    Great company overall. Benefits are great. In-house cafeteria. Gymnasium and fitness center.

    Cons

    Avoid the IT department. Turnover within the IT group is high. Morale is bad due to workload, long work hours and micro-management.

    Pros

    Can make a lot of money, some product lines are great, flexible with Dr appts, closed on Sundays and major holidays

    Cons

    Some product lines are horrible, nps is a joke, insurance is terrible, retail gets treated like red headed step children, manager is absent all the time but upper management is too far away to know.

    Advice to Management

    Drop in on sales centers more. Don't believe it when managers say they are out doing "lot visits" when they are really at the local bar or in bed watching netflix. Get better insurance. Don't forget the sales people are selling from 830am-7pm and we don't have the luxury of an onsite gym. They gym reimbursement is a hassle, no weight loss coverage, no nutritionist coverage, stop wasting the money WE make for this company on unnecessary things and give us what we need.

    "Too many managers. Not enough leaders. Poor communication. Too many middle men which leads to more communication flaws."

    Pros

    Only good thing, always hiring. Can easily be promoted within department if you have a good head on your shoulders and have good attendance.

    Cons

    Horrible benefits. Vacation and PTO benefits are lacking! No sick time off. Too much required overtime. Burn out the workers. A lot of back-stabbing.

    I have been working at Clayton Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Corporate culture is amazing. It’s a very positive and open environment. Kevin encourages innovation and creativity. The gym classes and free fruit during the work day are a huge benefit. I love the “teamwork” environment.

    Each year, I am more and more proud to work here! This company is constantly looking for ways to improve from within.

    Also - phenomenal upper management team!

    Cons

    The “good ol’ boys” club is exhausting and detrimental to the company. It’s slowly getting fixed, but some of the middle management are extremely chauvinistic and ignorant to their own actions. This seems to be a particularly common theme in all of the marketing facets throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at who is getting work done and has respect from their peers when making promotion decisions. Quit overlooking your strong females. They can make great leaders too.
