Pros

NVR is a leader in the homebuilding industry and has buying power that other builders don't. In many markets, they are the big fish in a small pond. They have an excellent team of engineers and have some of the best floorplans around with the best quality. They offered great training and opportunities for advancement.

Cons

In some positions there is not great work life balance. It may be difficult to be promoted from within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to show your employees that you value their time. Giving them a better work/life balance would improve their enjoyment of their jobs and in turn they will work harder for you.

    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.
