    Pros

    Fair pay. Good coworkers. Corporate sounded very interested in making the transition smooth and develop long lasting relationships.

    Cons

    Poorly managed integration of CamWest into Toll Brothers. The technology options were terribly outdated. It negatively affected my productivity. Too many "programs" intended to make project management easier, but made the team very ineffective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the full merge into Toll Brothers.

    I worked at Toll Brothers full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's been a steady job and I like a few of my co-workers.

    Cons

    Low salary and no growth opportunity. Despite going above and beyond and regularly receiving glowing reviews year after year I was still not given a significant raise or promotion. "It's just not in the budget" was a common excuse, yet the upper managers were still collecting their bonuses. The financial bottom line is all that management cares about. They cut corners by paying their direct employees poorly and hiring the cheapest contractors available. The amount of warranty requests because of shoddy workmanship speaks for itself. Managers also have the worst communication I've ever experienced. No one knows what anyone else is doing so a lot of time is wasted by multiple people all doing the same thing. My direct manager puts on a show of "making himself available" but in reality he is never really available. I've had to have the same conversation, with the same information, numerous times because my manager just doesn't remember anything. Waste of time. There are several senior VPs who are downright verbally abusive yet no one ever addresses this with them. It is just accepted that that's how they are. Like it or leave it. This is probably why the turn over rate is so high.

    I worked at Toll Brothers full-time

    Pros

    Based on my experiences I would recommend investing in this company. Pay is decent but not commensurate with workload. Well established company. There are and have been some really great people that have worked with the company, but most of the really good ones find a way to leave before too long.

    Cons

    The company really could care less about their people and make it very clear that everyone is replaceable. If you have a young family, it can be a real challenge for you and your loved ones. High stress environment. Although things have turned for the better since the housing downturn, they are still running on bare bones from a staffing perspective. As a result, things get missed and continue to get missed until it has to go to Senior Management, and then, after they have burn out their people, the swoop in and try and help. They are a very reactive versus proactive company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It may be time to start filling more of those positions that were eliminated back in 2007 & 2008......

    Pros

    good training, nice work place, met nice people, good benefits

    Cons

    They don't pay well so turnover is far too high resulting in errors and mistakes. Construction is awful, company culture is ill. Its just a matter of time before the company crashes because they cant keep good employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring the cheapest contractors it doesn't work. Change your bonus structure because it is barbaric. Pay your sales people so they want to work. Read your reviews and compare to other builders and ask yourself the question why is everyone saying the same thing?

    Pros

    Beautiful enviroment although noone is happy! The company sets the stage for employees to be competitive and backstabbing because they fear for their jobs!!

    Cons

    Walmart business ethic! Nonone is valuable to them. You are replaceable! Do t hink you are not. Continue to look for a job while employed with Toll Bros, they have a high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You ALL NEED DIVERSITY TRAINING!!!
