    Pros

    Great company! Some of my favorite things:
    Managers are open to new ideas, and encourage them
    I can walk into my boss' office if I ever have a question
    Everyone is friendly and caring
    Ample PTO, the company is very family oriented
    The customers are happy with their homes, it's always rewarding to work for a company that delivers well
    Emphasis on building "homes", not "houses"

    Cons

    The office is quiet, and its cold! wear your blazer :)

    I worked at Shea Homes

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Shea Homes

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Shea Homes wand would love to still be there, they are a private family run business and they do not micro manage you. They trust and respect there employees.

    Cons

    Working at Shea Homes was a pleasure, I did not really not like anything - if I had to choose something it would be last minute cash flows and not receiving feedback on how you did on the previous cash flows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management of shea homes needs to continue to involve the associates, and seek their ideas. I really liked the one on one interviews with senior management.

    Good product. Good people. Good neighborhoods and marketing. Will be one of the winners when things turn.

    Local managers could be better - big time cronyism.

    Company is so much better than the local sales mgt. in place.
