    Pros

    The people are great and the company seems to care about their employees. Pulte Homes is a big company with a small company feel. Therefore, you don't feel like a number. You actually contribute to the company and you matter. They also tend to promote within so that's a plus.

    Cons

    Senior management isn't very forth coming with information and this seems to be the trend within the divisions. Of course there are always a few bad apples that spoil the bunch. Also, career advancement tends to only happen when a manager gets promoted or leaves the company.

    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 part-time (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
