    Houston Division is Horrible, it's a dictatorship

    I have been working at K. Hovnanian Homes

    Pros

    Some areas of the office had fun employees!

    Cons

    I have been here little over two years and they have gone through two HR's already. Highly unethical place to work at. If you speak up or try to raise issues against the big boss they find a way to get rid of you. Turnover is so high but nothing is being done about addressing issues.
    Only employees sees raised are construction, marketing or employees who brown nose or are YES man

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and stand up for your employees. Stop playing favorites!!!!

    Pros

    none at all what so ever.

    Cons

    The Management is incredibly Horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring friends and actually look for talent in the correct places not in your friends.

    I have been working at K. Hovnanian Homes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits at a low cost.

    Cons

    The Mortgage company is all about hard work, long hours and empty promises. HR Director heads up a lot of programs and takes forever to reward employees when they've achieved goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Might be time to make some changes in Upper Management.

    Not a bad company from a lower level position. Upper management is out for themselves

    I have been working at K. Hovnanian Homes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Their some great people in the field who do an excellent job with what timelines their given to build a nice looking home

    Cons

    Way too many chiefs and not enough people in the field to actually manage the homes, and too many people getting promotions for non work or bedroom activities!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop creating so many checks and balances for the construction staff, stop hiring temp supers who really don't care because they're passing through. Hire a few more permanent field staff to be able to follow the numerous policies that are in place, QSI and QAR's can't be done with just 1 super

    I have been working at K. Hovnanian Homes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They are industry experts in home building. I learned so much.

    Cons

    Business model stretches out management, it is hard to manage construction off site

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take middle managements word as scripture. Get out to each site regularly and unannounced.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Red Bank, NJ

    I worked at K. Hovnanian Homes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Current employees seem satisfied with their jobs - so much so that at least 75% of upper level managers have been there over 15-20yrs. The culture is business casual and I found most mangers willing to work with their direct reports' daily schedules.

    Cons

    Executive level management was not necessarily the quickest and strongest decision makers. There was no work from home option and minimal professional training reimbursement

    Pros

    The sales associates were great and the money could be lucrative

    Cons

    Management is disrespectful and has no idea what they are doing. Training is a joke and sales is on call 24-7

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect.... Create a real training program and get on the same page.
