    Transition from a family owned company (Darling Homes) to a Corporate atmosphere is a challenge.

    I have been working at Taylor Morrison full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The money is decent, the atmosphere is professional and focus is on doing things right. TM motivates their workforce in a variety of ways, contests, surveys, competition assessments, "shops" and more.

    Cons

    Since being acquired by TM in 2011 or 2012, the builder I work for, Darling Homes, went from being a locally owned family company to a corporately owned company. We are losing many long time employees at DH due to the rough transition. TM came in much like a bull in a china shop albeit a friendly bull, but things are still rocky. It can also be compared to getting kicked out of the nest without necessarily knowing how to fly. Their "new" systems were thrown on us with little or no warning and not much training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down. Stop and take the time to train us in the applications, procedures, etc that we are expected to master. Stop trying to lord it over us and invest the effort to get us acclimated to your corporate structure. A stitch in time saves nine.

    Pros

    Great land position for the Orlando market.

    Cons

    With acquiring the land - hired numerous new sales associates. Support staff was unable to keep up with the growth of the division. Accounting was a mess. Purchasing needed to be revamped due to the previous management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice for management - they obviously know what they are doing. Have hired all new management within the last year and half.

    I worked at Taylor Morrison full-time

    Pros

    Recent Leadership changes at the end of 2013 should improve work environment and employee satisfaction. Strong leadership at the company's corporate level. Division now focused on customer satisfaction and doing the right things to be successful.

    Cons

    Previous division leadership was weak and made poor business decisions. Unfortunately, many of those decisions still impact today's business and will for some time to come. Corporate too slow in reacting to poor leadership. Lost a lot of good employees during that time period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Division autonomy is a great thing unless you have the wrong leadership in place at the Division. Do a better job of listening to feedback from employees and don't be afraid to investigate and make changes.

    I worked at Taylor Morrison full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. I wasnt micromanaged, was able to schedule out my day myself. Got along well with my co-workers

    Cons

    Over-worked, spread to thin, under-paid, every project manager wanted their finger prints on everything, so the process of doing the job changed all the time. It should have been cut and dry like most other builders. Bonus program was atrocious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked their in 2007 so things could be different by now. At the time most middle management were friends of upper management from other builders. They were not qualified.

    Many opportunities with Taylor Morrison as the market is picking back up and customers traffic is increasing and are buying homes again.

    With the downturn in the new home construction market there is a shortage of qualified sub contractors in the market place.

    I worked at Taylor Morrison full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great CIO, Bob Witte really knows IT. Technology used is solid and they follow best practices. The work life balance was solid they allowed for remote work when needed. The pay was above average for the region. They also provided good benefits and charges varied based on income, if you got paid more then you paid more in, if you were lower paid then you pay less for your benefits, over all it was a fair deal for both. They do try to keep it like a family.

    Cons

    Hit hard by the housing crash, had to lay off some great IT resources. The Directors that reported to the CIO played a lot of politics and some were even cut throat. The best way to move up was to stay under the radar and work on special projects that had multiple directors getting credit for the success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working hard to deliver the best IT that can be afforded based on market conditions.
