    I worked at Beazer Homes

    Pros

    Beazer homes was an amazing place to work. They build a quality homes.

    Cons

    I have never had a negative experience at Beazer Homes. In fact I would argue the opposite that it was a wonderful place to work and helped make me into who I am today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build more homes in Orange County and other parts of Southern California. There are many buyers looking for homes right now but the inventory is so low they cant find the right home for themselves. Most people want new construction when they are spending top dollar on a house.

    I worked at Beazer Homes

    Pros

    Interesting industry to work for, company is definitely in the middle of a turn around that was hindered due to former management team's mistakes. Current CEO and CFO are hard working individuals who expect a lot from their employees and are willing to listen to the concerns of all personnel. Fantastic opportunities to learn and succeed here.

    Cons

    Less PTO than other companies of this size. Long hours necessary to complete corporate deadlines. Politics rampant with many co-workers not taking accountability for their failure to stay on top of their responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes it wasn't a fun place to work, but understandable given the focus on becoming profitable again. CEO/CFO are doing a great job with the business and is open to ideas from lower level employees, however culture within the company is toxic at times. Focus on making the company a place that people really want to go into to do the best work possible every day. CEO is making an attempt to change the corporate culture, however sometimes it's placed on the back burner due to what seems to be daily fire drills that could be prevented by division management holding those responsible for failing to adhere to corporate directives--these individuals tend to pass blame onto others.

    Best wishes to the many great employees there--I'm confident management will continue to clean up employees not on board with the program.

    I worked at Beazer Homes full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    MY managers were generally very open to input.

    Great diversity in my position. Great team environment once you find a "group", both in and outside of department. Those outside of the "group" could be more difficult. Almost had a clique like feel.

    Cons

    Certain managers (in my department and out) were not open to input. Likewise, there was tension and an unwillingness to cooperate throughout the company.

    My ultimate reason for leaving was the general tension and failure of management to provide a promotion despite their acknowledgement of my superiority among my pears.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and promote. Create more open communication between departments.

    Pros

    The Work versus life balance was good here. Beazer also offered a competitive benefits package including health & 401k matching.

    Cons

    Poor communication from upper management to other staff. No feeling of employees being "team members" or having your suggestions taken seriously. Upper management seems to make decisions without listening to feedback from people on the "front line," even though we are the ones who deal directly with the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should communicate more directly with employees, and make them feel they have a stake in what the do.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Flexible workplace, left to produce, you must produce or you will be gone.

    Cons

    Favorites get better communities and breaks, fairness is lacking, must work most holidays, long hours, management out of touch with today's market, low morale, High new home prices led to low sales. Low sales means low pay. Eat lunch as you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Take time to shop all competition. Treat people better.

    Pros

    Great sales training program by local executives, decent benefits, good backing by corporate for planning and marketing strategies as well as national promotions.

    Cons

    After the media struggles, the company has a very poor reputation and it would be difficult to sell a beazer home right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish there was something corporate could have done to revive the Charlotte division after the media blitz against the company.

    Pros

    It is within the Residential Construction industry.

    Cons

    Senior manangement seems disconnected with the tools required to preform adequately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps the market downturn is a substantial cloud on operations and progress. The companies focus should be more accurately communicated and combined with reasonalbe expectations of when proper tools will be provided to succeed.
