Reluctant to promote from within
Ryland generally has a good culture; however, they try to run too lean and mean. This gives leadership inadequate time to understand what's going on at the division level and to act accordingly.
Advice to Management
Hire enough people so you can manage properly and get to know your people better.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at The Ryland Group (Houston, TX) in July 2014.
I applied online and was contacted by the area VP. The first interview was with him and after the interview I took the personality and IQ tests. The second interview was going to be with the area manager that I would be working for but he was not available so a different area manager interviewed me. The third interview was with the area manager that I would be working for, all of the interviews were the same routine. I will say that I never felt very welcome, all of the people I interviewed with were rather cold. Also, I requested a copy of the benefits package multiple times but it was never provided to me. I did get an offer but have yet to accepted it because I have another offer from a different home builder.
