Former Employee - Manager  in  Dallas, TX
Former Employee - Manager in Dallas, TX

I worked at Meritage Homes full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Lots of work to do, very competitive market to contend with, good systems

Cons

Legal department runs the company and flavor of the year is the mantra from AZ

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your worship of the stock price is like watching a dog chase it's tail. Why? almost most of what you do to affect the stock price cannot have an effect. It will rise and fall with all the other builders in the segment.

    Pros

    Decent $$$ on the sales floor "IF" they don't give you a partner.

    Cons

    MAJOR micro-managers! No respect for personal time. Horrible workplace morale. VP's even discuss how difficult it is to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees, and do something to show they're appreciated. Cut out the micro-managing, and quit allowing Scottsdale to call the shots in each region.., it's obvious they're making the wrong decisions.

    I have been working at Meritage Homes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Product discounts with participating vendors
    Autonomy when working large projects

    Cons

    Territorial postioning and rampant use of startegic non compliance tends to drive highly effective individuals from the ranks. Outside of corporate offices, many good managers still operate in smallpockets but corporate politics eventually impacts all areas of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fear is not a long term motivator, they should relax the micro-management approach from the top and staff the departments to better serve the neds of the organization. Currently most overhead departments are runing with skeleton crews thanks to the long market down turn, now that business is picking up it is time to brreakdown all the kingdom( ie maketing) and give technology a chance
