Ryland afforded me an opportunity to excel at what I do best...Sell!

Broker Associate (Current Employee)
Sacramento, CA

ProsVery supportive structure, always took my marketing ideas seriously and implemented nearly all of them. This is not the norm in this industry. Although the division I worked for evenyually closed, I am certain they are still a great company to work for. Can't tell you how many healthcare professionals commented on the coverage we had... such as "Wow, you have great insurance!"

ConsThe work load for each employee laid off there we all increase our scope of work. This was difficult, but were thankful to be working.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider opening the Northern California Division again! The latest statistics show an upward trend, you don't want to be the last "on the dance floor" Do You?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
