    I have been working at Standard Pacific full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong, supportive culture which leads to great teamwork. Standard Pacific's focus has been on the move up buyer and building a better quality home. It shows in overall customer satisfaction. Merger with Ryland homes will create more diversity.

    Cons

    Like any sales position, there is the ongoing pressure of meeting company sales goals. Management works with you though to help meet those goals.

    Advice to Management

    To maintain supportive, team oriented environment in merger with Ryland Homes. Also, to continue current benefit package and salary structure.

    Pros

    A great place to learn the building process. The structure is solid and the company has a bunch of successful divisions.

    Cons

    Too many people have ideas of what the company is supposed to look like, but to date it is not a cohesive company. Overall Standard Pacific is not an employee centric company and they have a revolving door of new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Hire, train and develop your people. Don't be so quick to eliminate quality in search of the next best person. Grow your team and develop so that you can have depth of experience.

    Pros

    SPH builds good homes and builds them well. They pay attention to customer preferences and try to stay ahead of the trends.

    Cons

    Employees are expected to do more and more with fewer resources and less autonomy. Salaries were frozen during the economic downturn and never recovered. When I started with the company, the focus was on the customer. By the time I left, it was all about profit margin. Volatile and disrespectful employees were tolerated as long as they produced the right numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Consider employee value as equal to shareholder value. Do a salary analysis to ensure the employees are compensated fairly across the organization.

    Pros

    Upper management really cares about lower ranking employees and really encourages growth and educational opportunities. Great benefits packages with 2 weeks starting vacation and a chance to earn more days as you grow with the company. Lot of holidays throughout the year. Always celebrate each employee's birthday. Very fun environment to work in. Lot of social activities provided by the company to foster community between all departments.

    Cons

    There are no cons at StanPac

    I worked at Standard Pacific full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great and oter departments besides the Accounting were really fun.

    Cons

    Some managers are not out for you, they dont care if you have to stay until 9pm everyday (arriving at 8 or 7am) to get extra work done. Work load and expectaions are unrealistic ( In accounting department.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, hire more people so moms and fathers can go home to their children before their bedtime.
