Great company to work for even while the market is down

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.

    Go in with the correct expectations and the job is great! If you want to climb the corporate ladder go elsewhere.

    Pros

    $$$$, training, if you have a sales mentality and produce this is a great place to work. Company is stable and also profit driven so if you are in the home building industry there isnt a better place.

    Cons

    Everything depends on what division you work for, no upward mobility, promotions are based off of relationships not merit, schedule sucks (but comes with the territory), they do not want anyone to think- execute only, new reps typically have to prove themselves and struggle in tougher communities but it can be done. (again expect this prior to starting).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most Managers already know the issues, but they know better to rock the boat or they wouldn't be where they are now.
