    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company to work for. Full of integrity and really cares about it's team members. Tons of bonuses, profit sharing and just company fun overall.

    ConsWork weekends which I am not fond of. Depends on who your manager is, typically a relaxed work setting.

    The sky is the limit. I loved working at David Weekley Homes. If I hadn't needed to move away I would still be there.

    Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee)

    ProsIt is a team environment. I felt like a a valued employee. I was given many opportunities to grow and learn more about the industry. Management expects a lot from you, but they never ask more than they are willing to give themselves.

    ConsWork/life balance was difficult for me.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Awful, I wouldn't let my enemy's dog work there

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood money if you are in the right neighborhood

    ConsMicro-management, salespeople are treated as pawns and less than human. Upper management think they are kings and nobody's opinion matters except theirs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementActually practice the owner's core values. You do a great job making it appear like you do to the public. But inside, we all know the truth.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Dream job

    Draftsperson (Former Employee)
    Carrollton, TX

    ProsGreat people, fantastic diverse work culture ... like none other I have ever experienced!
    Dedicated to employee moral. Very structured training program (love it) - nothing left out and not overwhelming.
    Warm, professional environment.
    Plenty of community volunteer opportunities.

    ConsOne horrible employee with the personality that will suck the life out of your day. From my first on the job, other employees pointed him out. But he was useful (no more than other employees), so I cannot for the life of me understand why he couldn't be fired.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. Hope prosperity and success follows for centuries to come.
    But bring the jobs back from overseas. Economically disabling lower and middle class tends to have a trickle-up effect.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a career

    Construction Management (Former Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    ProsOwner is a great guy, tries to make it a good place to work, always promoting his "culture"

    ConsFull of fast talkers and blowhards at local levels. Culture diluted by self serving managers brought in from other companies that fire employees and replace them with their personal friends. Home brew software is painfully amateur. Girls in the office manage themselves and never sweat over getting important issues in a timely manner. Whole company very clickish and difficult to fit into one group without the others cutting you out. New people often ostracized and then leave in six months. Never expect to be promoted here, whatever you are hired at, if you are good at it, you will stay there forever. All upper levels came from other companies or forced hires from the main company. Every few months expect to get a visit from the owner's henchman, he will stay a few days and just wear everyone out with all day group inspections and point blank pop tests in front of your coworkers and bosses. Like the sargent in the movie, Full Metal Jacket.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNever hire a city president from other companies, always promote from proven people that have at least five years with your culture and know the issues and what needs to be fixed. Get some outside consultants. Don't homebrew software. Stop worrying about surveys, instead attend to quality. We spent most of our time planning and strategizing for good survey scores.
