    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.

    I have been working at Clayton Homes full-time

    Pros

    Gym and other perks that make it manageable

    Cons

    Cut throat - they push perks but their medical benefits are horrible. The culture is gossip and if you don't suck up to the right people, you do not get promotions. They fire at will and do not give reasons on why. Performance measurements mean nothing because they make promotions and terminations based on popularity. STAY AWAY

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your Human Resource department - a good work environment isn't just about the perks. Your management is creating a hostile work experience!
