    I have been working at Fieldstone Communities

    Pros

    Fieldstone was very family-oriented. Executive management knew everyone's names and even personal life, which you rarely get in any companies. They will stop you down the hallway just to ask how you are doing. You get a good feeling when you go to work because you have a lot of friends there. The company knew how to treat their employees in terms of company events and perks. It was one of the best companies I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    My supervisor did not show any heart or gave any recognition throughout the 3 years I worked for her. Even up until the week I left she did not notify the company I was leaving, which I think was a big deal seeing I do the company's payroll. She had no trust in what I did, which was odd seeing all the emails I received when I emailed the company myself saying I was leaving. Even co-workers out of state who I rarely see begged the HR department to try and keep me just so they wouldn't work with my supervisor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees fairly and get to know them. They deserve praise and recognition when it's due.

    A once great company that's now dying a slow death under ineffective and inexperienced management.

    Pros

    Wonderful founding principles. This company works very hard to promote and perpetuate the culture and ensure it runs through every thread of the company. Every employee is treated with respect and trust regardless of title.

    Cons

    Upper management has become extremely weak as a result of former senior management leaving, retiring or just moving on. Young MBAs have replaced the old regime as the new blood of upper management. New management comes from other industries and does not have a fulll grasp of the building industry and have not experienced the many economic or housing cycles over the decades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please re-evaluate the choices that are being made when it comes to Project Maanagement. Having an MBA or a USC degree is no substitute for a seasoned industry veteran who has seen the many ups and downs in this industry. Employees are disgruntled and sad that the founding principles of Keith are slipping away. Employees also see alot of kissing up and fakeness on behalf of some of the upper management. It seems very apparent to everyone but Frank, who keeps these shady insincere people as close confidants and advisors.

    I worked at Fieldstone Communities

    Pros

    Fieldstone Communities is geared toward efficiency and has a smoother run operation than other large volume builders that I am aware of.

    Cons

    The company pushes the "family feeling." I am not saying it is a hostile environment in any way, but this is not the case. Management could be more open with what is hapening in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't dismiss the problems or concerns of the staff. Some issues just seemed to be ignored that should not be.
