    I have been working at David Weekley Homes (less than a year)

    Pros

    Front line management is very in touch with employee needs and development. DWH offers flexibility in career path to promote quality retention.

    Cons

    Middle management appears terrified of upper management scrutiny which leads to micromanagement at division level. This could be isolated to individual divisions due to unique personalities of division leadership. Exceptional benefits are diluted by low pay with so much emphasis placed on already solid to high profit margins which will eventually lead to reduced retention rates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not write checks (annual projections) that you can't cash. In other words, you should manage the expectations of senior management the way employees must manage customer expectations. Development is great but you must pay to retain. Truly be open to suggestion, don't just say you are. Just because it's your idea doesn't mean it's the best idea...this is leadership 101 stuff.
