Pros

People care
Decent compensation
Professional management - compared to the family-run hacks elsewhere

Cons

Tough decisions are put off
Terrible industry right now
Management shows very little trust of employees
When's the market coming back?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay the course! You've got a plan to make money again, and the worse thing would be to deviate from it at this point.

    Pros

    KB pays well, but they will wring every ounce of life out of you.

    Cons

    Few people get promoted from within, rather the company routinely seeks new personnel from outside the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your people more fairly. Learn to develop your people and promote from within. KB has good people who deserve the opportunity.

    Pros

    KB Home is at the forefront of the home building industry- if you are going to work in this industry, make it with KB. Great "Green" initiative, large corporation but intimate environment, executives treat the little people as one of them.

    Cons

    Business is slow these days, but that's probably temporary. Few windows and harsh lighting in some areas of the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No complaints here whatsoever. Thank you for treating us like humans.
