I worked at The Weitz Company LLC full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Company culture is great, truly has a cooperative everyone do want you can to help the company attitude. Very good about focusing on growth and forward looking

Cons

Seems to change long range plans and focus too frequently. I was there only short time yet went through a confusing range of projects that the company was seeking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Marketing structure seems very weak . May be a result of frustration with direction. . While the company has an excellent reputation for work product it seems that it is not being leveraged well additionally seems that reduction of the many levels of management /too many senior management has been very slow..

    Started Strong, Ended Poorly

    I worked at The Weitz Company LLC

    Pros

    Employees are a dedicated group, most who have been with Weitz for multiple years and really care about quality construction. Weitz is lucky to have a good reputation in the industry.

    Cons

    As Weitz got bigger within the last several years, the culture changed to something far more corporate and impersonal. Overall, the culture is very old school construction, and there is very little interest in being an innovator and leader in the market.

    Weitz is not a company that believes in learning and development: despite having a chance to come out of the down economy stronger, Weitz has recently decided to forego all new training.

    I do not think corporate strategic planning is a strong point, as the company was sorely unprepared and under-diversified going into the GFC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect for people, honest and integrity: Don't just put this stuff on the business cards, follow it.
