    Pros

    Loved the challenges that came with a start up company. Mgmt was good overall, but lots of mixed messages from top brass.

    Cons

    Salary wasn't the best, but fair. Some uncertainty as departments were relocated to new field offices around the country. Depts didn't always talk to each other very well & IT was a mess for awhile, but got better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to staff not just management.

    Former Employee - Construction Management Intern in Scottsdale, AZ

    I worked at Colony American Homes as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The management was excellent in helping me and assigned me meaningful and exciting tasks. They gave me a chance to make a real impact on the company.

    Cons

    It was oftentimes intimidating working with people who had much more experience than me and who were a lot older. Also, it's a very new company so the internship was very unstructured.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so wasteful with money.

    I worked at Colony American Homes full-time

    Pros

    People that work there are very nice

    Cons

    There are too many people working on one project. They have meetings about meetings for meetings all day long and nothing else gets done. Common mistakes when you have too many managers, supervisors, team leads etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut some of the fat! You are probably wasting a ton of money on employees that really aren't contributing, or have people in management positions (getting paid management salaries) that don't need to be there.
