    I worked at NVR

    Pros

    Nice office locations to work in.

    Cons

    It's a home-building "factory" environment. It's all about the bottom-line and the administrative employees are micromanaged, poorly compensated, and overworked.

    Management was unorganized

    Former Employee - Sales and Marketing Representative in Franklin, TN
    Former Employee - Sales and Marketing Representative in Franklin, TN

    I worked at NVR full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    New and updated floor plans that made sense.

    Cons

    Too many chefs in the kitchen. Then they insisted on that sleazy canned sales approach over and over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach people to sell but let them have their own individuality too. Enough with the video shops!

    Current Employee - Project Manager

    I have been working at NVR full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Above average salary, good systems. Good training programs.

    Cons

    Poor corporate culture, work - life balance is very poor, do not value individual employees. With up turn in the industry have noticed that many employees are leaving due to being burned out and micro managing style. Everything is about the data and the numbers even if that means stepping over an employee or customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the individuals within your company, your people are the most important asset you have. All managers above the divisional level make decisions based on fear and what they think the manager above them wants to hear, not what they know to be right.

    Former Employee - Senior Loan Officer in Frederick, MD
    Former Employee - Senior Loan Officer in Frederick, MD

    I worked at NVR

    Pros

    Discounts if buying a home. Great insight in to construction practices, processes and pitfalls. Lots of talented people, lots of people in general and lots of energy at first. Nice offices, nice staff, nice bosses - lots of nice. Allowed to be independent, follow true best course and encouraged to be honest, straightforward and ethical.

    Cons

    But... pay stinks comparably, way over-worked, high stress, good ideas quashed if it might upset the status quo or the builder, only way to earn enough money to live was to fight with fellow employees for loans, or find ways to get loans done even if they maybe should not get done. Builder ruled the world, even though they poisened it in the first place by forcing things through rather than stepping back and considering the best possible outcome. Only cared about their desired outcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Laying off your most talented people might be the way to end debates, questions and discussions within the offices when bad ideas were put in to practice, but it is destroys customer service and leaves you with the workers who just do the job and don't go the extra mile. Originality and capability should be rewarded, not punished.
