    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work hard play hard with coworkers that become friends. You can take personal pride in the product created and the need it serves. Many talented employees willing to go the extra mile and work hard.

    Cons

    Industry in chaos. The company was gutted of talent to survive the housing crisis. Some local management poor decisions cost big bucks

    Advice to Management

    Thanks! Great place to work.

    Pros

    I loved Centex. The people were great, the recognition was fair, their was great communication, the products were something to be proud of, they instilled a sense of development within all employees, and they encouraged inovation. All that's, as you may have noticed, in the past-tense. See the downsides I posted about the company being acquired by Pulte for further information.

    Cons

    None anymore. Centex was just acquired, or is in the process of being acquired, by Pulte Homes. So, don't come knocking on Centex's door looking for a job. Instead, look towards Pulte Homes. But even then, as Pulte is a ~3500 employee company and Centex is a ~2500 employee company they are going to have to hack away at headcount... not add to it.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully you all get to stick around at Pulte.
