    Pros

    This is a stable growing company with new opportunities offered regularly. After you are here for a while, they offer to pay for your education.

    Cons

    It takes a very long time to get a job at this company. I worked as a contractor for 2 years before being accepted as a permanent employee.

    I worked at Centex part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Didn't work there for long. Not much to say. It was a more or less pleasant experience while I was there.

    Cons

    The company seemed somewhat disorganized, although it may have just appeared that way to me because I didn't get much insight into the company's workings.

  7.  

    I thought my experience was just peachy.

    I worked at Centex

    Pros

    Work hard play hard with coworkers that become friends. You can take personal pride in the product created and the need it serves. Many talented employees willing to go the extra mile and work hard.

    Cons

    Industry in chaos. The company was gutted of talent to survive the housing crisis. Some local management poor decisions cost big bucks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks! Great place to work.

    Pros

    I loved Centex. The people were great, the recognition was fair, their was great communication, the products were something to be proud of, they instilled a sense of development within all employees, and they encouraged inovation. All that's, as you may have noticed, in the past-tense. See the downsides I posted about the company being acquired by Pulte for further information.

    Cons

    None anymore. Centex was just acquired, or is in the process of being acquired, by Pulte Homes. So, don't come knocking on Centex's door looking for a job. Instead, look towards Pulte Homes. But even then, as Pulte is a ~3500 employee company and Centex is a ~2500 employee company they are going to have to hack away at headcount... not add to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully you all get to stick around at Pulte.

    Pros

    Company has good procedures and schedules to ensure closings are met.

    Cons

    You need tp be part of your manager's in crowd if potential layoffs are possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let each division have more say when it comes to employee levels.
