    Good, but slow moving

    Summer Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsOverall 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.

    ConsOffices 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 IT hardware and software is very outdated, frequent down times.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 Senior ManagementHire a consultant to streamline business process, modernize IT and sales offices.

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

    a cog in a very large and efficient machine.

    Studio Associate II (Current Employee) Horsham, PA

    ProsIn 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.

    Consyou 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Horsham, PA

    ProsGreat 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.

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

    Great sales staff

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) New Chicago, IN

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementSales staff needs direct and open communication with upper-management.

    Great company.

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Raleigh, NC

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

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

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

    Toll Brothers provides the best training for our future Builders

    Senior Management (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsYou 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet 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.

    Robert I. Toll leads the way other builders should

    Sales Manager (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThe fact that the company treats you like you run your own business. It's up to you how much you make, and up to you how you succeed or fail. I'm very happy with my job. I really haven't found negatives to this job. Maybe the fact that you sit in a model all day. I mean Real Estate as a whole is down, but Toll Brothers is awesome. Perhaps the fact that we are a little behind the 8 ball in terms of being a "green" builder. But for the most , this is a fantastic company for anyone wanting to work for a professional builder of dreams.
