    Pros

    Family Oriented - great benefits - great opportunities - great values

    I have been with Clayton for two years and was a contractor for them before that. I work at Corporate in Maryville, TN as a Computer Analyst.

    Just like any company there is some office politics but all in all, I feel the company genuinely care about its employees. I have had several different managers in the past two+ years and with the training that they all go through I have never had a horrible one. I have never had a problem with letting the manager know if I have a work related issue. We have always been able to work through them.

    I also feel that Clayton believes in what they do. I do believe that they want to see customers in homes and does not leave the customer after the purchase is over.

    The benefits are great, their benefits rate up there as one of the better ones that I have had, even in this day and age.

    Cons

    There is office politics with every job and this isn't any different. Although, I am not usually affected by the politics, I know they go on.

    90 days before benefits kick in, this includes PTO. I understand this is common but it is the first time I have ever had to deal with it.

    Pros

    Learning opportunity. Good managers are available but not plentiful

    Cons

    If manager above you has poor sense of managing job costs for construction on your deals, your salary will be affected adversely.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor your managers with anonymous surveys, not quarterly reports. Takes to long for numbers to reveal a problem. Give district managers ability to execute dolutions. The district Mgr level was usually folks were usually quite good.

    Pros

    Clayton Homes has an excellent benefit plan that covers medical, dental and vision. As well as retirement with employer match.

    Due to the nature of manufactured housing, sometimes one finds oneself working 12+ hours a day, 6 days a week.

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

    Pros

    The culture that Clayton Homes strives to achieve is a good one. An on-site workout facility, outstanding management training resources, a healthy work-life-balance motto. I have worked there for almost 8 years and have had an overall positive experience.

    Cons

    For their information technology department, they are a bit behind the times and have a high amount of technical debt to pay down. This makes the department a frustrating place to work in at the moment. Their goals for change are good ones, but the execution thus far has failed to achieve appropriate buy-in from all managers and employees, and has adopted a more directive approach, rather than one that empowers creativity and change. That being said, I cannot imagine being the primary driver for a change initiative of this scale. Casualties and complaints are unavoidable. I have no doubt, in the long run, once the bumps and wrinkles have been ironed out, Clayton will be much stronger as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Don't underestimate the impact that investing in the technological platform can have on the long-term profitability and sustainability of the company's success.

    Pros

    There are some really good people that work there

    Cons

    Pay scale varies depending on what plant you work in even if you are doing the same job

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees and stop trying to cut corners because people live in the homes you create
