    I have been working at Clayton Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Backed by Berkshire Hathaway
    Decent benefits program

    Cons

    Are you good at over-promising and under-delivering? Are you willing to sacrifice your integrity for poor product quality? Do you have the patience to spend weeks if not months fixing endless problems in a home because it was poorly built? Is your skin thick enough to constantly be dealing with customer complaints, missed deadlines and poor product quality that you'll be blamed for (even though it's out of your control)? Do you have a creative edge when it comes to making excuses? Are you willing to spend a year or more in the job before you actually start receiving commissions? Are you OK with owing a portion of your "base salary" back to the company when you do make a commission? If so this is the perfect job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they're worth... without them owing you back.
    Serious lack of guidance and leadership from upper management.

    Pros

    Clayton Homes really makes an effort to invest in its employees. It is committed to the development and success of the teams in the corporate office, as well as, everyone in the branch locations

    Cons

    no real cons of significance

    Advice to Management

    Just a minor thought....but, internally, there could be more collaboration among the various subsidiary companies when it comes to strategies regarding human resources, talent acquisition, and marketing.
