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 Management

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.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Executive 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 Management

    KB 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.

    Pros

    Enjoyed type of work and flexibility.

    Cons

    Corporate bureaucracy and limited long term vision within local division.

    Advice to Management

    Give more local autonomy to divisions to be able to make better business based upon local markets rather than making general decisions based upon national trends which do not reflect local markets.
