Overall, a decent place to work

Manager (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at KB Home

ProsLots of opportunities to learn and gain new skills. Pretty flexible schedules and telecommuting options. Employee discounts with some suppliers. Most co-workers are friendly and competent. Some interesting product developments and partnerships (e.g. Martha Stewart, green/ solar homes, etc)

ConsVery archaic HR policies. IT systems don't "talk" to each other, so it can be difficult/ time consuming to get to information you need. Economic downturn has resulted in the loss of a lot of the little perks. "Training" modules online that are either irrelevant or so obvious that you wonder why anyone needs to be "trained" on it. Hiring process can be lengthy, with a series of tests.

Advice to Senior ManagementBank of time off days that could be used at employees' discretion. Stock options for lower level employees. Better IT systems that "talk" to each other.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
