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

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.

    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

    Pros

    I can not express any good things to say about Meritage Homes. They thrive on the revolving door for their employees.

    Cons

    Meritage does not live up to their company mission statement. They will not do the right thing for the home owner or for the employee. Their only concern is the bottom line and will take advantage of their employees, business partners, and home owners in order to achieve their financial goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit micro-managing your employees. Delegate and then let them run the business.
