    Pros

    There are some great knowledgeable people who work at Toll

    Cons

    Everything else. There is a really bad vibe as rounds of layoffs take place and benefits get cut back for most employees including the company 401k plan. Would suggest looking elsewhere

    Pros

    Could have led to a lucrative Managers position and a realistic salary.Great Product

    Cons

    Since mgr was related to senior mgmt in the company no one responded to formal complaints.Low pay for a lot of work.Decent money begins when you are a manager

    Advice to Management

    Take complaints seriously..A discrimination/ harassment suit should have been filed but I was a prominent and respected Broker-Salesperson in my area

    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 The technology options were terribly outdated.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 Management

    Make the full merge into Toll Brothers.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect!

    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 Management

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