    I have been working at Centex Homes full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Possibilities for growth, but only if you can brown-nose your way into staying during the cyclical times

    Cons

    Cyclical business, so don't plan on making this a career. The average person will be out the door during one of the down-turns in the housing industry.

    Former Employee - Assistant Controller in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Centex Homes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are great. The workload is heavy, but most people share equally. With the downturn in business, they were pretty successful in keeping the best people, at least for awhile.

    Cons

    Good old boy network. Most of the managers are Caucasian men, and while there is mandated diversity training every year, I think those guys just keep hitting the forward button.

    Like the environment, people were friendly, had lots to do. Multiple communities to work on. Rebranded. Talented managers. Work/life balance.

    Cons

    Could have used more insight into projects. Location was poor so it was a long drive. Not enough assistants.

    Pros

    Centex is a great place to work, when the economy is better, look for their job search, they have a great corporate culture

    Cons

    As a company, they need to be more flexible in their business plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the state of the economy when making plans for the future. Pay closer attention to your upper management and make sure no one is hidding anything from your projrections.
