    Pros

    They are industry experts in home building. I learned so much.

    Cons

    Business model stretches out management, it is hard to manage construction off site

    Advice to Management

    Don't take middle managements word as scripture. Get out to each site regularly and unannounced.

    Pros

    KHOV is very organized internally. They are highly motivated to sell homes, while not losing focus of customer satisfaction and quality. KHOV has one of the strongest construction teams I have ever been a part of.

    Cons

    KHOV is a bit rigid when it comes to its employee organization. You are not allowed to directly contact anyone that is not your direct supervisor. They also do not promote independent thinking. Every decision has to go through a chain of command.

    Advice to Management

    If you are pursuing a sales career with KHOV, I encourage you to negotiate your terms of employment.

    Pros

    I think that some of their management staff were some of the most respected managers in the business today, they are caring and understanding. They would encourage you to keep up the good work, but as you know anywhere you work you some good and some bad things that can happen. Their overall score for the company is very high.

    Cons

    The downside is that they tend to promote those who take others credit, and they tend to promote those who have family members in top positions.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same and promote those who deserve the promotion. If you should hire someone that family is in a management position you should always have them earn their promotions not just give it to them because they are related to someone who works in a top position.
