    I have been working at Beazer Homes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Offers a great product that could be easy to sell, if built right and on-time. A good resume builder, if you don't stay too long. A good choice if you don't look for much training, support, praise, or constructive feedback.

    Cons

    No clear career path. Lacks opportunities for growth and advancement. Arrogant, unqualified management. Extremely numbers-centered, though unable to interpret and analyze data. Beazer neither cares about nor understands how to achieve the best customer experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in selecting and training qualified individuals who understand new home sales, marketing, and construction. Then, listen to them.

    Pros

    The Work versus life balance was good here. Beazer also offered a competitive benefits package including health & 401k matching.

    Cons

    Poor communication from upper management to other staff. No feeling of employees being "team members" or having your suggestions taken seriously. Upper management seems to make decisions without listening to feedback from people on the "front line," even though we are the ones who deal directly with the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should communicate more directly with employees, and make them feel they have a stake in what the do.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Flexible workplace, left to produce, you must produce or you will be gone.

    Cons

    Favorites get better communities and breaks, fairness is lacking, must work most holidays, long hours, management out of touch with today's market, low morale, High new home prices led to low sales. Low sales means low pay. Eat lunch as you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Take time to shop all competition. Treat people better.

    Employees are suffering in the wake of the Housing dilemma as they continually asked to do more with less.

    Pros

    It is within the Residential Construction industry.

    Cons

    Senior manangement seems disconnected with the tools required to preform adequately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps the market downturn is a substantial cloud on operations and progress. The companies focus should be more accurately communicated and combined with reasonalbe expectations of when proper tools will be provided to succeed.

    Beazer needs to place more value on employees that have stayed through this troubling time.

    Pros

    Individually there are managers that care about the company and it shows.

    Cons

    The downturn in the industry has created an environment of extreme cost cutting - no dollars are allocated to training or employee welfare. The employees are treated as if we should be appreciative of still having a job. The company refuses to embrace flex time for any corporate employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees that haven't jumped ship as of yet should be treated with respect and appreication. Showing appreciation does not automatically equal spending money.
