    You should be lucky you work here.

    Information Technology (Former Employee) Fort Myers, FL

    ProsNice co-workers.
    Benefits
    Clean office
    Discounts on appliances, furniture from old model homes.

    ConsSome of the middle-management was out of touch with reality and didn't understand processes very well. Made changes mid-stream and didn't realize the ripple effects of their actions and the extreme amount of extra work involved to make certain changes.

    To make the changes, you had to work extra hours without pay.

    No raises at ALL (3 1/2 years nothing)
    Being told "You should just be happy to have a job here"
    Being bullied into working late hours/weekends without pay at all.
    No mileage reimbursement for personal vehicles
    Favoritism within certain departments

    No room for advancement

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that everyone isn't a "yes" man that works with you. Take responsibility for your own actions and respect people of all employment levels and their personal TIME.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good place with decent opportunity

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsThe product a sales rep is asked to market is first rate for the pricepoint. Awesome buildingmanagers for each community, and a management team that listens and looks before they leap into a community

    Benefits reasonable, but could be better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRevamp compensation package, otherwise, this of a great place to work
