Pros

Lots 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)

Cons

Very 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 ManagementAdvice

Bank 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.

    Pros

    This company articulated a business strategy and executed the strategy. I had a good experience with the whole group in.

    Cons

    The career path can be unpredictable given the nature of the single-family home industry. Timing is the key in this business, and you can't control that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One thing missing from KB Home is alumni relations. There is no effort on the company's part that I am aware of to keep in touch with people.
