I worked at K. Hovnanian Homes

Pros

The company is committed to deliver a quality product at a good price to the consumer and stands behind their product. Treated employees and customers fairly.

Cons

Management changes could be quick and dramatic, with no forewarning.
Corporate office middle management and staff in N.J. believed they had the answer to every problem, even ones they weren't familiar with. Too many experts with too little real experience. Often wondered if people got paid more for every slide in their PowerPoint presentations!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corporate management needs to leave local issues to local management. Make decisive decisions instead of just incremental changes.

    I have been working at K. Hovnanian Homes

    Pros

    Good systems and procedures. Well run warranty department.

    Cons

    Ongoing downsizing. Cash poor company. Too much nepotism. The owner gets too involved in small details and is not a people person. Local manager does not respect the opinion of others. The mortgage company is and always has been poorly run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with employees about the condition of the company. Get rid of relatives who are not deserving of their positions. Quit getting too involved in small details and concentrate on the big picture. Spend less time in the high society social scene and more time solving challenges.
