    Pros

    Flexible hours for someone who doesn't have children or don't want to advance in their career. This company has been around too long to let go.

    The Human resource staff dont have degrees

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Working with kids makes each day unique.
    Some days can be really fun, makes time go by fast.
    Gain experience and techniques on how to handle children.
    The pay is good, but it can be better.
    Coworkers are most the time a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Very strict, sometimes ludicrous rules. Makes the kids sad and bored and makes our jobs less fun and engaging.
    Parents, from time to time, can be hassle to deal with.
    Lack of workers will have you sometimes do substitute work at other schools at a lower pay.
    Certain kids can really test your patience, no matter what you do. They will find a way to brake the rules.
    Almost every kid wants free time/play, so they can play and spend time with their friends. But our rules do not allow for free time or free play
    Most kids do not have fun when they cannot play or be with their friends because of rotations, the kids complain to parents, the kids leave the program, and thus, the company loses money.

    Advice to Management

    More freedom! Boys want electronics, girls want to play with their dolls, not just o. Fridays. And us, the workers, want more freedom for the kids, makes out day easier and also more fun for both us and the kids.

    Pros

    Clayton YES! has always remained focused on the children. They have been through a lot of changes in the past year, but the children remain a focus of the Agency. The changes that the Agency is going through are for the better and Clayton's employees remain strong and believe in the Agency's mission.

    Cons

    If you are with the Agency for the right reasons; i.e. the children, then there are not any cons to working at Clayton YES!

    Advice to Management

    Remain strong and continue to focus on the mission of the Agency. The changes that are being made are for the better and the Agency will continue to grow.

    I have been working at Clayton YES! full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They say they are trying even hired a new ED..the Board is a Joke and plays favoritism and is very unethical.

    Cons

    They lost many great staff...some needed to go some left because they could not be a part of the unethical drama. If Keller or any school district was smart they would not partner up. The agency is still in financial distress. People left are just there for a paycheck. They brought back one coordinator who was a huge problem..that's how desperate and clueless the new management is. They say the focus is the children...that is what they want you to believe.

    Advice to Management

    The community and the children and parents a great service and close down your doors. Let the real agency's service the community. Everything Clayton once stood for is gone.

    Pros

    Clayton YES! is an organization with a great history, important mission and tremendous opportunity. It has all this to build on and it is beginning the process of becoming an greater agency than it has ever been before. Exciting times ahead!

    Cons

    Clayton YES! has lost some experienced people in recent years and that creates some challenges. On the positive side, there are many opportunities for the new comers to make their mark on the agency.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the team. Try new things. Aim high for the children and family served by Clayton YES! They deserve it.

    Pros

    Clayton YES! Has been through some tough times in the past year. The employees who remain focused on the mission will help this agency succeed. We are under new leadership and will soar to greater heights than we have ever seen. Keeping our focus positive and moving forward, the sky is the limit. I have had some concerns about the changes taking place and have been able to talk with Human Resource and had my mind put at ease.

    Cons

    There are no cons because we are moving forward from today on. This is our new beginning!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be supportive as we go through another change, never forget the staff are the backbone of what we do and appreciate them for all they do for kids everyday.
