    I worked at Blu Homes

    Pros

    For the individual seeking opportunity to have an effect, there is a lot of low hanging fruit at Blu Homes. Also, you will have direct access to all varieties of architect-engineer design professionals and laborers. It seems that the demand for product is lined up for years, and the company is marketing driven, which further enhances their ability to sell. The top cofounder is a very charismatic leader with an abundance of intelligence and charm.

    Cons

    Document control is a total disaster. Eames said "never outsource understanding", but as much as Blu Homes might like to think they're like Eames, they don't embody this message. Very little of the back-end within Blu resembles other architectural-engineering outfits. They have done things their own way (thinking it was innovation, perhaps?). You'll always be saying to yourself, "this is a huge mess." True expertise is scarce. Very green people have disproportionately large titles. There have been multiple massive layoffs in the past. If you work here, make sure you're always ready to move on at a moment's notice. The self evaluation of their equity seems overly hopeful when you see how things work on the inside, and it's almost guarenteed their growth projections will fail - not due to a lack of customer demand, but due to the mistreatment of projects.
