    Pros

    Red Clay is still a big family.
    Compensation is adequate.
    Management appears to care.
    Great outings.

    Cons

    Travel can be a bit much.
    The culture is going in a direction that is not inclusive anymore. There are splinter cliques and bubbles of inclusiveness. People yell and disrespect other coworkers with no HR intervention. Management seems to be overall oblivious to these incidents or ignore them because of who is doing the yelling/disrespectful behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and decide, 'Are you a family like you were or a corporation?' because if you are a corporation, you need HR behavioral guidelines that extend to internal interactions.

    Pros

    Red Clay has deep skills and an amazingly committed operational staff that foster an environment of growth and success.

    Cons

    Not really a downside, but full commitment is a must to succeed. It is a lifestyle more than a job.

    Advice to Management

    Expand offerings so that more businesses can benefit from Red Clay's expertise.
