    Pros

    Good place to learn and move from divisions in the company. Company is expanding market share and is more stable than smaller builder companies.

    Cons

    Salary for each position is capped so working harder does not equate higher salary. Few opportunities for overtime so less control over your income. The company is all about the bottom line and building houses fast and selling them as quick as possible and keeping costs as low as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Management is tough, they just have to follow the corporate lead. Don't make waves and keep teams informed of corporate decisions so it is not a shock. Management can only cushion the blow, no control over the corporate direction anyway.

    Pros

    There is no pro unless you live under a bridge. The best thing that comes out of this company is the realization of how good you had it.

    Cons

    This is the absolute literal definition of a horrible employer. in my short term of less than one year I saw 15 people fired or quit. The environment is toxic you my as well drink liquid uranium. Management from the top down is complete anarchy. Get ready to ask for permission to go home. Like weekends? Dont plan on them here. Ask any employee in the datacenter how pong they have been there as the average is 6 months. They will expect you to value the company over your own family. The benefits are atrocious. You are better off with Obamacare for insurance. They always fire on Fridays. DO NOT CONSIDER A JOB IN THE FORT WORTH DATACENTER!

    Advice to Management

    Quit. You are horrible human beings. I really hope you have a good explanation at the gates of heaven.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, weekends off, and OT option

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities. Employees are not punished for being unprofessional within the work place. Very little respect towards one another while collaboratively having to work so togrther.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a more structured way of going about new projects that are communicated earlier on. Create more opportunity for feedback if what works and doesn't work so we can avoid repeating the same mistakes.

    Pros

    Leader in the industry, good benefits.

    Cons

    You need to be a kiss up to gain favor with this company. Middle management is in control, and most of what they do is try to go with the prevailing winds. Unfortunately, as an employee, that's a trailing indicator and you can easily find yourself on the out of favor team. Sales skills and people skills only matter once the obligatory side is chosen

    Advice to Management

    It's great to leave decision making to the local level, but corporate culture needs to be enforced on a national basis.

    Pros

    a lot of new technology but they have no idea how to use it.

    Cons

    no personal life, they will ask you about sacrifice and commit to the organization repeatedly. 100k is really 50k with the number of hours you will work or less.

    do not believe any recruiter, they are not interested in change this perception.

    Advice to Management

    staff for a 24/7 NOC or fix the root cause problems.
