I worked at Pulte Homes full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

At its core, Pulte is a very well structured and professional company. They are also one of the largest home builders in the world which certainly lends them a lot of clout. Also, being a publicly traded company means there are not a lot of "owners-whim" issues to deal with.

Cons

There always seemed to be a lot of "pet-projects" going on, that took up a huge amount of time and money. Many of these projects were obvious failures, but depending on who's project it was, would be pushed through long after they should have been allowed to die.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand fully what the ramifications are on some of those disfunctional projects and kill them early if they need killing.

    I have been working at Pulte Homes full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good when market is good or when in a community of mixed product (singles, towns, condos, active adult); bad when in close-out community or community with one product line (singles only) or one price point.

    Cons

    For over 7 years, no opportunity for advancement despite being in top 10 producers for company (1,000 sales associates). Inconsistent leadership; ethical and moral violations undisciplined in upper management. Value creation isn't - decontenting homes and removing value while keeping pricing the same or increasing. Doesn't consult with field when making decisions that impact sales. Poor communication from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your ranks. Be the (good) example. Listen to your sales force in the field. Practice what you preach and enforce ethical standards within management.

    Pros

    Paid very well but expected long hours/weekends from entry level employees.

    Cons

    Long hours and manual labor for people they hired as full time professional staffing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually do some of the work
