    I have been working at Beazer Homes full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits package, great hard-working people, opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    When sales are down, it's a very negative atmosphere. Also, not a lot of vacation time is offered and there is a high turnover rate for employees (especially good ones).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would help to provide more training to new employees rather than just throwing them in the fire right off the bat. Also everything internally is very unorganized, roles are not clearly defined, too many shared responsibilities cause things to go overlooked, etc.

    I worked at Beazer Homes full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    MY managers were generally very open to input.

    Great diversity in my position. Great team environment once you find a "group", both in and outside of department. Those outside of the "group" could be more difficult. Almost had a clique like feel.

    Cons

    Certain managers (in my department and out) were not open to input. Likewise, there was tension and an unwillingness to cooperate throughout the company.

    My ultimate reason for leaving was the general tension and failure of management to provide a promotion despite their acknowledgement of my superiority among my pears.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and promote. Create more open communication between departments.

    I have been working at Beazer Homes

    Pros

    Local division is very caring towards their employees-treated as a member of the family
    Commissions paid are very decent
    Build a very good home
    Care about their customers
    Good warranty and after sales service

    Cons

    Upper management is taking more of a micro management approach
    a lot of "Big Brothering"
    Some decisions made out of fear of losing their jobs or their relevance-not necessarily because the decision makes any sense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more confidence in the people you have hired. If they are going to be held accountable for results, they should have the power to effect change.

    Not an employee focused company.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are slightly above average. Initially bonus programs and ability to obtain bonuses was very good. The local division had a low employee turn rate and very high moral.

    Cons

    Beazer Homes initially allowed Divisions a high degree of autonomy in the operation of the company. With the downturn in the housing market all autonomy was eliminated. Earned bonuses are not paid and bonuses programs were severely reduced. What had been an employee/customer focus became a bottom line focus. Corporate upper management bonuses were not reduced. Frontline employees suffered while upper management prospered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The frontline employees are the strength of any company. Most frontline employees are willing to help the company as long as management is willing to carry the same burden.
