Current Employee – been working at Toll Brothers
Pros – Toll gives you a great experience in learning all multifaceted task in the real estate industry. Project Managers are responsible for budgets, contracts, sales, marketing, ad customer satisfaction for their respective community. So the experience you gain is invaluable for your future.
Cons – With that experience comes a price. You will be expected to work 60+ hours a week even though that is not said to you directly. With the reporting that Toll requires and with today's market of being lean in the field, doing more reporting , and more micro managing it makes it difficult to be effective in your job on a consistent basis. Also when I was hired over 10 years ago it was about moving up in the company and had a nice competitive spirit. With this down turn in the economy, it seems that Toll has lost some of the positive reinforcement that they use to preach in the past. Now it is about survival and get it done with more critiquing than, getting a pat on the back from time to time. (Mind you this is on a Division Level and not necessarily on a national level)
Advice to Senior Management – Upper management needs to be in more sync and together on a division level instead of individuals. Need to recognize and praise their employees, and be more of a positive reinforcement . Need to realize the employees you have work harder and like to come to work if they feel like they are more part of the process as a whole than just an employee.
