Great income potential(albeit 100% commission) and great company from a broader perspective but poor leadership locally.

I worked at Ryan Homes

Pros

Great income potential. Sales reps are 100% commission and have an opportunity to make six figures in a good year. Reps are given lots of autonomy. Ryan Homes is one of the only builders that puts reps through a formal sales training program and testing series and as a result has some of the most upstanding reps in the industry. Ryan Homes is one of the only builders to report a profit in recent years in one of the worst housing markets most of us have lived to witness. What this means to you is job security. You can rest assured that this company will not be going under as many builders have in recent years.

Cons

Work most weekends (you get one weekend off a month) and long hours, high stress, 100% commission, little opportunity for career advancement or professional development following the initial training, poor company culture as a result of the challenging marketplace. Ryan Homes used to work hard to play hard and celebrated small victories as well as huge successes before the market decline. It is clear that management is feeling the pressures of a challenging market and has forgotten the importance of creating a positive company culture. Employees are resentful.

    Great income potential. Great training program.

    High stress. Benefits are not very good. Micromanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved with reps interaction with customers. It would be helpful to have management sit in on appointments and lead by example. Management in out of touch about what's really going on in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a community is not working after several reps have been there and several audits...it is not the reps fault. DOn't send them there to die
