Pros

Great people in the field. Fun work environment before the housing bubble burst. Tremendous in-house training opportunities. One of the best benefit packages I've ever had.

Cons

Not a fun work environment after the housing bubble burst. Management considered themselves before their employees in the face of adversity. Base salary was not competitive. Management had favorite employees and it showed. Management typically had no field experience prior to holding their positions which caused them to make poor business decisions. Management treated employees like children.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I believe that division, area, and senior levels of management should have field experience in Construction, Warranty, and/or Sales. It helps to understand how the business operates than to make a 'best-guess'.

    Pros

    Culture is amazing, you find they hire people who are similar to you and have the same interest as you. When the market was good, life was good.

    Cons

    Unless you are in sales, you had no opportunity to take part in spiffs or receive awards. Not everyone can be in sales.

    Pros

    Strong, transparent senior leadership. In a great position both financially and product offering for when the market begins to strengthen.

    Cons

    Home sales is a 7 day a week business. Weekend work is required. It is essentially retail so you must be in the office no matter whether there are customers coming in the door or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As can be expected there have been many cuts in staffing. At this point only the top performers remain however there is little to no visible effort to retain them. Given the current market top salespeople are not rushing to the homebuilding industry. That being said, those who remain need to be paid more and given more flexibility of work hours or they will leave for those companies and industries that will meet those needs.
