KB Home Atlanta it's too late for you but all Southeast regions beware! Especially SC and NC divisions.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

ProsManagers were personal and dedicated to their department. Learning new abilities.

ConsExecutive Vice President after the release of the president was not an independent thinker, slow to make decisions, showed no care for employee delight and expected unreasonable timelines instead of working with his managers to support his division.

Advice to Senior ManagementKB Home Atlanta closed, but they moved the EVP to Charleston. To the EVP I would say, dedicate your time to that division and work your tail off to keep them in business and show your managers why they are worth keeping instead of letting those managers decide the fate. Change your handle from Closing King (aka the one who comes to close a division) to Saving King. As for the CEO Jeff Mezger, I really like your approach to going back to smaller homes for the 1st time buyer, what the company was built on, but upper management use the business model only when it fits their needs. Hopefully you are not doing the same.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
