    It's competitive, but everyone I've worked with has been extremely nice and they want to see you succeed.

    Pros

    Other employees are great, they want to see you move up, and they provide good training. Pay is what's to be expected.

    Cons

    Although they do want to see you move up, things can be very slow moving. You have to really prove yourself, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. If you're in sales you have to work weekends.

    Pros

    Overall the people were great. Managers are welcoming and very capable. Questions are welcome. Full-time employees can register to reserve vacation days at company luxury vacation homes in many cities around the country.

    Cons

    Offices are very spare in an anonymous office park. IT hardware and software is very outdated, frequent down times. Decisions are typically made quite slowly. Employment may not be stable as luxury home development is highly driven by the economic climate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a consultant to streamline business process, modernize IT and sales offices.

    Pros

    In Toll Architecture, the work environment at corporate is very good. They take care of their employees, there is a lot of firm culture, and there is plenty of room to grow to some degree.

    They really support young staff to pursue professional registration.

    Cons

    you are essentially pushing out a product that you will never see again. you are also a part of a very long assembly line, just upstream from the TIS facility.

    Also, the "third floor" only cares about numbers. There is some new stuff happening, but its slow and regurgitated.

    Pros

    Great experience in learning the commercial real estate market in a large scale environment. People are more than helpful in answering any and all questions you may have.

    Cons

    They will keep you more than busy. Even though the job can be quite enjoyable you will be asked to do much beyond your job description. Be prepared to work, and work hard. Not a negative!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management does a great job of running Toll Brothers. They will expose you to a number of experiences just a short time in.

    Pros

    Great support from other sales team members. Beautiful homes, fun atmosphere, great upper-management, nice opportunity to work for some of the best sales people.

    Cons

    Project Managemers are given too much control over the sales office. I was ripped-off on commission at least once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales staff needs direct and open communication with upper-management.

    Pros

    Prior to slow down, always busy, lots of networking, amount of work seemed stable at the time (ha!), reputable, excellently organized (internally).

    Cons

    Extremely intense. NO matter what goal was achieved or, for missed goals, the difficulty in attaining such goal, it was never good enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more grounded. Put more value into the efforts of workers by really showing care not just a few words in group meeting setting.

    Pros

    You are given freedom to perform, there is not a doubt in my mind that this was the best experience I have obtained in my career. All employees are trained extensively in the the Toll method of doing business. I found that each "graduating class" of employees had a sense of belonging similar to that of a Fraternity or sorority, this contributes in my opinion to the success of the organization . Each team member understands the importance of our business model from the get go, time is not wasted on trying to figure out how the system worked.

    Cons

    Too many family members working there from Senior management, causing rift among remaining staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to your core strategy, Our project managers were the key to our success keep it that way. Time to start grooming the next generation of senior management current senior level is getting long in the tooth time to let go.
