    If you like cliques, double standards, and be treated with no respect you would like it.

    Pros

    Casual dress ... that's all!

    Cons

    Most of the division is related. If not related-they're fishing buddies. Cliques within departments, lot of backstabbing, worked a LOT of hours unpaid, promised a promotion, but manager chances AGAIN (4 xs in 2yrs) so never received it. Was constantly finding billing errors but was told just to approve them anyways, would follow the policy and procedures but depending on who the vendor was, those policies and procedures would not apply. Hard workers would be treated poorly while the family employees got the praise. Take off and budgets were never right, causing a negative ripple effect. Upper management just doesnt care what is said or done. As long ad houses - regardless of how well - being built. Could go on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Stop catering to the "special" employees and run off the good hard working employees. Hold area managers responsible for their sloppy building supplies, hear ALL sides to an issue not just the manager. If both are at fault than both should have consequences.

    Pros

    Insurance, really can't think of anything else...

    Cons

    Making your sales quota...no family time...never a weekend off and very few holidays recognized.... Knee Jerk Management...Over priced homes...Hugh turn over...Maybe another state for employment since they are a large outfit...but Bham market sucks...

    Advice to Management

    Listen!!! Recognized your employees, become more family orientated, float weekends off...Better Pay...Learn the market and stop overpricing your homes, so that Sales Associates can make a living

    There were none whatsoever in the Birmingham division.

    Cons

    Everything related to the job in the Birmingham division.

    Advice to Management

    Let the Sales Reps do their thing! Too corporate and ridiculous sales approach they require in the Birmingham division.

    Pros

    They offer benefits, but the healthcare coverage is more of a wellness plan. The other Realtors in my area were a great asset.

    Cons

    Very difficult to take a vacation day. No clear direction as a new employee as to how everything works. Had to figure things out by trial and error or ask one of the Realtors in my area. Asking the area manager how to do something was a joke! IF you got a response it was usually very vague without really answering the question. You're told what the monthly goal is when hired but then it would change based on other criteria. No job security and very poor management in our area. It's mandatory to work weekends and family is at the bottom of the list for this company. They should come first in your life and even on your off days. There was a time when just a few hours before an off day we were notified we had to work our off days. Poor communication and poor leadership which leads to very low morale and high turn over.

    Pros

    Horton is a great company to make a load of money. They put a ton of inventory homes on the ground so you have homes to show prospects and homes to close quickly. There is little micromanagement. Laid back friendly work environment. Great homes, floor plans and features. Fast growing builder that is always buying new land. Not a ton of secret shops or checks and balances, they trust their employess to perform.

    Cons

    Not a ton of support from management. Unorganized corporate office with no real procedures in place. Limited options when it comes to making changes to homes to please prospective buyers. Long hours. Poor training program for Jr. Sales agents. Stressful due to the amount of responsibilities put on the sales people. You have to be extremely organized and manage your own business and solve your own problems, because you are on your own! You must do all this while keeping your buyers happy because if they complain, management will not have your back. No matter what, its the sales teams fault.

    Advice to Management

    Give some positive feedback to your sales team they deserve it. Acknowledge their loyalty and hard work. Set attainable sales goals. Have sales meetings that boost moral rather than meetings that bash your sales team before you send them out into the field to get yelled at by buyers and everyone else everyday. Be more approachable and supportive and you may be surprised what you get in return. These people give up their lives, weekends, and time with their famiiles to work for this company; how about a little appreciation?

    Pros

    This job will teach you a great deal about how you handle stress.

    Cons

    Flat management structure ---- this is a toxic workplace. There are long time employees who have a great deal of pull because they are so "indispensable"... They will tell you everything you want to hear, even tell you that you're doing a good job... Then without warning they will let you go and leave you out on the street without a single word of constructive criticism... There is a great deal of discrimination that goes on as well, for sexual preference and color... I heard comments about those things almost daily... Also, make sure you have no expectation of privacy (or trust for that matter).

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to trust your employees... There are a few people creating all the mistrust... Stop talking about people behind their back and patting yourselves on the back for letting them go. Confront the problems head-on... Most people handle criticism well and actually tend to improve from it.
