Pros

While the housing market is currently slower than the past few years management has continued to think of ways to help the sales staff get the needed sales. We are not paid on percentage commissions, so even though home prices have dropped it hasn't affected our pay directly. The management teams are supportive of your personal/professional goals and are very open to feedback. Constant self-evaluation and feedback from management makes it so that you don't get bored because you're always able to work on something to improve yourself. While promotions have been slowed the growth opportunity is great, even within the position itself.

Cons

Being part of a large Fortune 500 company can be frustrating at time because of the amount of time it takes to affect change. There are numerous layers to work through before something can be approved, etc...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to think outside the box and continue to solicit feedback from those in the field, not only on the sales side, but on the building side as well - those ideas are the ones that will promote the solutions that we are looking for. It's not ALWAYS about the numbers or earnings per share, but the people as well and sometimes that can get lost in translation.

    I have been working at NVR full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours and no weekends. Small Fortune 500 Company. Experienced and reputation proceeds them.

    Cons

    Very minimal vacation time thus very little family/work life balance. Must be employed 5 years before increase in vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone should be treated equal, some members of the management team plays favorites. Company should work together as a team not against each other. Lots of disconnect, upper management should really talk to the people on the ground.

    Pros

    Nice office locations to work in.

    Cons

    It's a home-building "factory" environment. It's all about the bottom-line and the administrative employees are micromanaged, poorly compensated, and overworked.
