    Pros

    Opportunity to make a great income. Meet new people on a daily basis. Become quite knowledgeable about people, personalities, construction, financing, Nevada Statutes, Making Presentations, creating your own business style. Working outside of an office.

    Cons

    The downside would be if you were placed at a very slow, or over-priced community, where there is a lot of competition who offer more amenities for less money.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your eyes and ears Open in Las Vegas! Make Certain the Reputation and High Integrity you have become known for, exists in the Las Vegas Market. Must ask agents, CONFIDENTIAL questions, and KEEP PROBING!

    Pros

    Some of the co-workers made this place tolerable. Before the company got cheap, they used to have team building activities.

    Cons

    Management at all levels hired on a buddy systems as opposed to talent or skills. It's no wonder why they closed down the Irvine mortgage division as the branch manager there and CA area manager were in cahoots. They merged with the Corona division which the former branch manager there ran the place into the ground. For example, there was a former car salesmen there with no experience in mortgages that became Area Sales Manager! I guess it pays to schmooz...

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your Buddies

    What was once a great place to work, is now sadly undesirable due to unprofessional mid level managers.

    Pros

    Orlando's Division president is extremely knowledgeable about the industry, a team player, an excellent manager! Company offers great income potential for driven sales people. Construction team is a great group of guys that are willing to go above and beyond to help sales team.

    Cons

    Middle management is in need of professional management training, they work on their own agenda, and lack the work ethics that a commission driven sales team needs. Response time to sales staff needs is slow at best. Their lack of skills adds an undue additional work load for the sales team. Unprofessional behavior, they gossip/discuss sales staff issues to other sales team members. You are constantly being threatened with your job.

    Advice to Management

    When visiting from Texas do so unannounced and visit model centers and construction sites alone if you want to know how your employee's really feel about the division. Upon your visits the sales staff is "coached" on what we were aloud to discuss with you. If you want honest responses do 360 degree confidential surveys with employee's to find out what and how your management team is really performing. All employee responses will have to be kept confidential because if managers know you have said anything negative towards any of them and their immediate boss you will be terminated.

    Pros

    Good team atmosphere. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Job security tied to real estate market. More of a starting point for a career than an ending point.

    Pros

    The best friends that I have for the past 9 years developed from working relationships made while at D.R. Horton. We all worked our tails off and had a great team. The paychecks were good for years until the market turned.

    Cons

    As a loan officer, they required us to bring in retail business as well as the builder business. Our underwriters were not comfortable underwriting retail loans and that caused issues. You can't keep convincing realtors to send us their loans when our underwriting would deny them or underwrite more strcitly than other mortgage companies would.

    Advice to Management

    It seems like a mixed message to want the loan officers to focus on builder business AND retail business. Once a loan officer builds up enough retail business they will just leave the builder and take the realtor relationships with them.

    Pros

    health insurance is cheap, I guess it's nice to be healthy while I job shop

    Cons

    they treat people like owned slaves, make everyone work for free-office, construction and sales.

    Advice to Management

    get real, now that the market is changing all these people who have been over worked and under paid are going to go to the other builders who are going to explode.
