    I have been working at Swinerton Builders full-time (more than 8 years)


    The people are the biggest pro at Swinerton. They set the bar very high for co-workers. The company has a fun, yet hard working culture. The work is challenging and upper management tries to spot and develop young talent as much as they can.


    The pay and their approach to pay. Sometimes the vibe seems to be that of "any shoes are fillable / anyone is replaceable." There's seems to be a heavy emphasis on the loyalty model and less the performance model. Further, youth (under 40) is often looked at as being "inexperienced" so it is an sometimes feel difficult getting your voice/opinions heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a little more credence to younger employees and their suggestions/opinions. Pay for the top talent! Create a more solid performance management system that involves coaching, goal setting, and accountability from all angles (360s).

    Positive Outlook
