    I worked at KB Home

    Pros

    There are some very small rewards but the cons outweigh the pros

    Cons

    Lots, forget about your family life, KB will be your life. Favoritism, lack of respect for its sales force. Promotes an unhealthy working environment amongst sales partners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your sales people, take them seriously, show respect, consideration and true appreciation. Cut the favoritism and the back stabbing, be honest with them and adequate compensation for hard work and show loyalty to your people.

    I have been working at KB Home

    Pros

    KB Home was my most exciting and hands-on marketing opportunity. There is plenty to keep you busy and lots of fun events to host and plan. You are given opportunity to manage a territory of new home model communities. You have the chance to create the events to market these communities to the general public and to real estate agents. You are involved with all aspects of the promotion and sales of new home. You are responsible for giving in-house real estate agents the tools necessary for making a sale. As marketing representative you maintain collateral, update websites and promote the communities through direct mail, billboard, tv, internet, magazine and newspaper advertising. There are also fun, young professionals within the organization.

    Cons

    There are not many promotions available at the local level unless a division sees growth. Unfortunately I was on board during the downturn of the real estate market in Florida. The sales success is only as good as the sales representatives hired and trained in the various divisions. Depending upon the real estate industry in the city/state you work you will see either really well-paid realtors working hard or really poorly paid realtors working hard. KB has a very strong brand and often times there is not a lot of room for doing creative campaigns outside of the typical KB program. You often have to fight to implement new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More information and honesty in the stability of the company.
