I have been working at Meritage Homes full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Decent pay, growing and we'll positioned company.

Cons

Poor divisional leadership that feels like they set you up for failure. Instead of valuing the employees opinions they force unpractical processes and initiatives down your throat. Many people who are either under qualified or so burnt out by this that they just go through the motions and seem like they're just there for a check rather than real problem solving or forward thinking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Re-evaluate your division president, find someone that will stop letting the sales force dictate the way business is done. Coniston based employees rarely think in terms of the greater good of the company. The company has so much promise if you would just refresh leadership and weed out a couple bad apples. That would go a long way towards morale and productivity.

    Pros

    Nothing to report here - unless high turnover is considered a pro - which I am sure executive leadership thinks this way

    Cons

    Micro managed from the corporate office. People in AZ have no understanding of local issues. Very inexperienced corporate staff that will not have any idea of how to support local operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of COO and his entire staff

    Pros

    Top Ten builder. Energy efficient homes.

    Cons

    Working here was...........well an experience. Extremely high turnover at both management and lower levels. Many company policies didn't make sense. Sometimes it seemed that management didn't know what they were doing and I often wondered how certain people got the jobs they had. Some of the high level managers were alarmingly young and seemed to lack experience. The way the division operated was confusing. Some departments were overstaffed and some were extremely understaffed. This may have been the case because Division and Regional upper management did not listen to or respect the mid-level division managers who are much more in tune with staffing needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What works in Arizona does not work everywhere. The Divisions should have more of a say when it comes to operating in their respective regions. People who have lived and worked in an area for many years tend to know more about the local market than someone in Arizona looking at a spreadsheet. Hire people who have experience working in the local area, not people who are from other parts of the State and don't know the details of the local market.
