    Pros

    Great benefits, quarterly perks and lots of potential with the right set of circumstances.

    Cons

    Some managers don't allow their employees to grow and learn. Taylor Morrison has hired great people if only they were allowed to do what they were hired to do.

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

    Pros

    Salary is fair, Benefits are great, one of the best Purchasing Teams that I have managed in my career, very professional Ops Team, Impressive Exec Team, Great HR Team. Local Divisions are able to manage their operations as a business unit and not driven by corporate policies. Plenty of challenges and learning opportunities, the ability to influence operational improvements at a local level, and not a tremendous push of corporate driven programs to the local divisions. (believe me, this is a huge benefit)

    Cons

    In any growing organization, change is ever imminent. This lends itself to high stress levels, long days, change of direction on the fly, and spending time recreating the wheel. Some are not equipped to handle the highs and lows, but it's just the nature of the industry at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start a division in Michigan

    Pros

    Benefits are good, employees are knowledgeable, hardworking and friendly. Compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    Senior management cannot be trusted, lack values and integrity. Work-life balance does not exist. Direct communication is lacking, lots of politics and there is too much backstabbing ... If it is not in writing they go back and change instructions and completely deny what was said previously!

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

    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.

    I have been working at Taylor Morrison full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
