    I worked at Centex full-time

    Pros

    Team environment, freedom to achieve goals independently using unique skills and talents. Director gave me the freedom to climb the ladder and move into management roll as a reward for making strong choices within the team structure.

    Cons

    If you catch on to the freedom strings and lift yourself to a more rewarding roll you are celebrated. I've watched some folks flounder and it seemed to me that these folks were easily left behind as the support crew while the superstars shine on and reap the rewards.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a system that really takes care to watch over all employees and provides some focus on those that need more guidance to achieve success.

    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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Centex part-time (Less than a 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.


  9. I thought my experience was just peachy.

    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 Management

    Thanks! Great place to work.
