    Licensed Agents beware, and if in desperation you do take a job, keep eyes wide open!

    I worked at Meritage Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Insurance benefits are fair, and company pays for portion of those benefits. Other than that, some of the small peas working within the company are good people.

    Cons

    Deceitful higher management, a younger crew currently being recruited, most with accounting backgrounds, and very little home building back ground. They are making the lives of sales agents and older employees miserable, demanding extra time and extra hours, even on days off. Extremely difficult to be reimbursed for expenses, if ever. Horrible company culture, that appears to reward a thick clique mentality. Slap on a happy face, don't say anything about the over pricing of homes at most the communities, tell your Division Presidents that they are "the bomb," and you might be a good enough to keep your severely under paid/over worked job. Heart ache, financial and emotional suffering for most agents, while only a couple of agents, at any given division, can actually sell homes and make the big money. Very hurtful to see such sad faces. The select few get huge favors, while others die on the vine.

    Advice to Management

    Start being honest and stop trying to make things appear as if they are much rosier than they are. It appears some tough realities are currently knocking at your door. As things continue to soar, and so is the price of bologna! Stop with the "positive attitude" culture, that is completely over the top. If you want agents to work extra hours, even on their days off, then pay them and price the homes so they sell. Seasoned experts will draw a line when they smell a rotten egg. Here's a little ditty my grandpa used to say: If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck, and I hope you know exactly what I mean. Start listening to licensed agents who know what local values are, and don't fire your managers or sales people for their honesty. Start trusting, stop the "positive attitude stuff" and stop hurting people. Let each division decide what to buy and what not to buy. Be transparent. Accounting degrees or financial backgrounds do not make a home builder.
