Good Ole' boy network and IT was VERY immature

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Tempe, AZ

I worked at Pulte Homes

Prosmedical benefits were good and some of the worker bees were good people. It was a laid back culture most of the time.

Consif you don't play along you go nowhere fast. I worked constant weekends and long hours only to have it turned against me as soon as things started going bad in the market. The funny thing is management would go on and on about 50 straight years of profit up until the crash. As soon as that happened it was no more bonus, no growth, and not even a Christmas party! It was shut up and work.

Advice to Senior Managementlisten to the people you hire and get behind them with support; not just empty words/promises. Stop with the fake culture.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Don't ask questions. Put your head down and work.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bloomfield Hills, MI

I worked at Pulte Homes

ProsFantastic medical benefits, lunch provided 4 days/week as well as fridges and cupboards full of food. Free fountain beverages. Worker bees friendly and pleasant to work with.

ConsDental benefits not worth paying for. Major disconnect between upper management and workers. Middle management is so focused on adding value to their own positions that they mismanage the people under them. Rewards systems and team atmosphere are non-existent and the sentiment coming from middle management to workers is basically "you're lucky to have this job so you'll take poor treatment and like it." Camaraderie is low and middle management takes no interest in your thoughts, ideas, well-being. You'll enjoy working here if you liked being whipped until you can't work anymore.

Advice to Senior ManagementRespect the people who support you. Your business is only as good as your workers and based on Q1 and 2 this year your workers are extremely dissatisfied with you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Stay away

Manager (Former Employee)
Orlando, FL

I worked at Pulte Homes

ProsLots of money to be made in sales during the good times. Pulte does offer plenty of chances to bond with your coworkers.

ConsSexual harassment abounds; the company is run by many rednecks who lack college degrees, but have no problems belittling those that have them. Several managers utter racist remarks with abandon and many leaders, especially those in HR, have advanced for no reaon other than "right place, right time."

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit patting yourselves in the back when times are good and blaming the market when times are bad.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Sales Counselor

Sales Professional (Former Employee)

I worked at Pulte Homes full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNot much to say here - Can make easy money in a good market and in a good community otherwise there are better sales positions

ConsBelow average managers, work weekends, commission structure, never ending reporting, blowing up balloons, and many more.

Advice to Senior ManagementShould've been more fiscally conservative, listen to people in the front lines instead of coming up with ideas in a board room, get rid of a lot of unnecessary reporting.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

No heart!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Pulte Homes

ProsLike coworkers. They are honest down to earth folks for the most part. Like everywhere else, there are sharks in the tank.

ConsTreat you like you have no feelings. You're not flesh and blood, you're a number. Just fill in the boxes. Don't think for yourself.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's the economy. Things are hard. You make is harder. Makes it hard to come to work everyday. Discounnected from workers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
