    I have been working at Pulte Homes full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people and opportunities to learn over the years have been great. I have had the chance to work with all levels of the business on many different projects. The opportunities to grow exist if you are willing to reach for them.

    Cons

    Movement of the corporate headquarters to Atlanta. The loss of institutional knowledge will be felt for several years after the move is complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate appropriately based on the audience. There are times when a single message is appropriate for all and times when a follow up message is necessary for other locations based on impact of the message?

    Pros

    Very positive environment. Pulte encourages it's employees to grow within the company and to climb the ladder.

    Cons

    The company has struggled in recent years with the fall out of the housing market. They have had to lay off many talented employees. Hopefully that will change and they will grow again.

    I have been working at Pulte Homes full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and atmosphere at Home Office! Amazing group of employees that all started in the Shared Services. Culture is something many companies are not able to easily obtain and this group had it going right!

    Cons

    The company is moving to Atlanta and losing a lot of good talent. I am sure they will get up and running but the experience and knowledge will take time to rebuild once again. The culture will take years, if not a decade to restore! There are a lot of systems and knowing how to maneuver and work them is a skill in itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay in MI and recognize the talent and culture you are losing.

    Pros

    Good people, decent pay, and good severance when they have layoffs.

    Cons

    Senior management is out of touch. They care too much about their own compensating that they pass over lower employees' cost of living and performance bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget what it is like to be in the trenches.
