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.

    Pros

    The company is very stable. They remain profitable even during a downturn in the market. They provide support to employees.

    Cons

    You must be a dedicated, hard worker to succeed. The job requires long hours and can be stressful at times.

    Great company if you want to make money but be ready for the boys club.

    I worked at NVR full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Money, 401k and stock price, good internal policies and procedures and a very smart CEO who makes good financial business decisions. Room for advancement as long as you are a "yes" man.

    Cons

    Politics, be ready for the boys club. If your a female you will never be equal to the men. Upper level male managers sleeping with young female sales reps. Lots of partying in the sales arena. Divisions always trying to hide things from corporate. Corporate does not appreciate people who have been with the company for decades but would rather trade them in for a new younger, lower paid, yes men. Longevity and experience are not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the folks who have been with the organization since the beginning ... When Paul Saville was just a little Accountant shooting baskets in the garbage can at the Campbell's Run Road location. Remember where you came from and who helped you get to where you are today. If you are going to get rid of someone that has been with the company longer than anyone in the history of the company, at least call them up and thank them for all that they did for the company.
