    Pros

    Free lunches, meet and greet lunches, Directors of NFS, Chris Lipscomb, and Sherri Addington, were awesome.... great motivators.

    Cons

    politics, managers aren't trained and have no idea how to manage when they aren't knowledgable in their fields. No communications... Favoritism, and lack of team work and kindness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire knowledgable staff, train, train, train, keep team motivated!!!!

    Pros

    Compensation is good and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Although many if not most of the employees are nice and helpful, the leadership is removed and the culture suffers for it.

    Clean house

    Former Employee - Host (Position Only At Certain Communties) in Broomfield, CO

    I worked at Pulte Homes part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    co-workers generally easy to get along with
    Due to downsizing, no real direct oversight from 'boss.'

    Cons

    No job growth opportunity, apparently for no good reason I could see, from position I worked
    Company undergoing changes due to market conditions
    Community where I worked was selling but a lot of dissatisfaction due to downsizing and one person doing the job of 2 to 3 people with no increase in pay. I saw many good people leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider promoting from within

    I worked at Pulte Homes full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay was competitive and the company had innovation and driving a great customer experience in its focus.

    Cons

    It was hard to see the downturn put an end to a lot of great projects that could have drastically reduced costs and improve quality. Ironic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get serious about working together with trade partners to drive down costs and drive up quality. Get serious about simplification DiVosta style.

    I have been working at Pulte Homes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pulte is good at team building events and fun activities to take your mind off of the work place. Divisions are friendly and so is most staff at home office. Management is always willing to help. The pay is pretty decent.

    Cons

    Atlanta is now the focus of the company. Those in Michigan still are left with nothing to do and no one caring about them. The once happy positive work environment is now filled with sadness and animosity.

    I worked at Pulte Homes full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    People are generally great. IT Department in Tempe is very organized, policy-driven. You'll have all of the software/tools that you need to be successful.

    Cons

    Compensation is middling (their comp ranges are 6-10 years old and in need of update). Cowboys at the very highest levels of management undermine the integrity of the entire department. Entry-level and mid-level engineers are mostly insulated from it if you keep your head down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow your own rules. No one person is bigger than the department or the good of the company. Trust the subject matter experts and at least do the footwork to understand who the subject matter experts are for a given topic. Update your compensation data.

    Pros

    The people, the training, the knowledge

    Cons

    Consistently changes directions, not the same culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make people matter again, the founder talked about no one being able to copy the people. This saying no longer applies, one of the many executive management changes that are not for the benefit of employees.
