Advice to ManagementAdvice

Evaluate the leadership of each department to see how how they treat their employees and perform their day to day duties. Give employees a chance to give honest feedback without fear of reprisal from their management team. Investigate and eliminate corruption within departments. Establish a company culture that promotes family life instead of penalizing it. Encourage the CEO to speak to his employees instead of alienating them.

    Pros

    The training process is very thorough for this industry.
    Great land acquisition department
    Pricing ranges from entry level to luxury
    Heavy emphasis on energy efficiency

    Cons

    We are currently going through a period where it's taking a long time to start the building process
    We are required to use Salesforce (which is a great CRM software) but it is a struggle for those who aren't very computer literate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a bottleneck in the starts department. We need more people in the design center.

    Pros

    Honestly, they build the best home out there. The engineering in the home is amazingly energy efficient.

    Cons

    I've never been so lied-to and lead-on in my entire life. I was hired on as a sales trainee and I exceeded all goals that were set out for me. When they hired me, they said I was in a 90 day training period and said it was going to be no time before they placed me in a community. Everytime I met with my executives, it was like a big cheerleading convention for you. I've been used as cheap labor and I have still yet to be paid like any other sales associate while making just as many sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a better way to comunicate between departments. It's like hell to get anything done for the good of the customer. DONT LIE TO YOUR EMPLOYEES.
