    I have been working at Shea Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is the best group of people you could ever dream to work for and with! Everyday I'm excited to come to work because the work culture built like a family. From the top down, everyone is embraced and encouraged without the typical power driven egos most corporations tend to have.

    Cons

    I've gained a couple pounds since working here because everyday unlimited snacks, sodas, and coffee are provided; and almost everyday someone brings in food for the whole office.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being so down to earth and respectful to the people who work for you. Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits.

    Cons

    This company used to be concerned with the individual employee and pushed hard for work/home life balance. I no longer feel that same concern for the individual.

    Advice to Management

    Company would be more with the times if they would allow 4 day work weeks or telecommuting a couple of days a week. Also need to watch certain employees that are creating a hostile work environment.

    they treat all employees with respect and dignity. Even though they are a large company, it is a family atmosphere within the work environment.

    I worked at Shea Homes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of really good people working for this company. Shea offers great benefits to their employees. Decent pay.

    Cons

    No employee support and awful management. I often felt like management was too busy or not able to help. Lots of finger pointing and working with the design staff was like being in high school all over again.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time training employees so they are able to do their job with less pressure and stress.

    Pros

    Management is very focused on making customers happy with their purchase. Great efforts are made to satisfy buyers.

    Cons

    Employees are underpaid and overworked. Employee moral is low and all aspects of the business are over analyzed. Too many meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Value your greatest asset....your employees. Happy employees will be more productive.

    I worked at Shea Homes full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great management and middle-to-upper salaries. Very straightforward culture. Anyone can succeed with hard work and a bit of luck.

    Cons

    Ups and downs of homebuilding make stability a challenge sometimes. Not always able to get promoted in timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Hold fast to the great heritage of the Shea family business. Keep investing in FranklinCovey training because it really sets Shea apart from other cultures.

    Lots of time to work on projects.

    Pay attention to the individuals who work in different branches... and stop the favoritism
