    Pros

    It's hard to think of a pro here. I would say the only pro is that you have a constant stream of business coming in from the builder (Toll), however that pro turns out to be a con. "Toll wants their cake and to eat it too"
    Benefits are fair to good.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs, very top heavy with too many senior management roles. Old school mentality. Technology challenged. Isn't run like a mortgage company. Comp plans are unfair. Too much ego, not enough "get-it-done" attitude. Turnover is outrageous, over 50% this year alone. They feed lies to their employees and give false expectations to any new hires. You have been warned!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check your egos at the door!

    Pros

    Talk about a company that gives back. Very impressed with corporate culture and the way employees are valued. A fairly forward thinking company for being over 40 years old.

    Cons

    Unfortunately not everyone can afford a Toll Home, they make a great product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire great people, you can train skill, you cannot train personality and determination.

    I worked at Toll Brothers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There were a few nice co-workers.

    Cons

    I was a property manager at Dreshertowne in Horsham, PA, and I accepted this position after ten years with another organization. You feel as though you must walk on eggshells around everyone, because there is so much gossip and ill--will amongst employees, who should be working together as a team. Employees undermine each other, and upper management does nothing to create a healthier work environment. Additionally, upper management is very unreasonable with work load, way too demanding and hard on their employees. They are not knowledgeable about the day-to-day operation, and spend way too much time nitpicking every little detail, in the midst, loosing the big picture. Regional manager, who is new, instead of working with the property manager, constantly undermined her. Nasty comments They have no respect for their employees or their customers. If you have other options for employment, go for it, but, whatever you do, do not work for Dreshertowne in Horsham / Toll Management. Horrible!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire Yourselves and Start Over! Eventually your business will deteriorate because of how you treat your employees and your customers.

    Pros

    People are generally friendly. Its nice to have a cafeteria in the building with friendly staff.

    Cons

    Actual position is completely different than the role advertised. Toll Brothers is not operationally effective. More time is spent shuffling papers than working on acquisitions or any value added activities. Group leaders do not care about their employees well-being and promotions are not based on performance. Everything is based on finding the cheapest "solution". The corporate office is a horrible building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in technology. So much time and effort is wasted dealing with operational inefficiencies. Compensate employees for good performance. High employee turnover is difficult to work with and causes the best employees to find other jobs.

    Pros

    In Toll Architecture, the work environment at corporate is very good. They take care of their employees, there is a lot of firm culture, and there is plenty of room to grow to some degree.

    They really support young staff to pursue professional registration.

    Cons

    you are essentially pushing out a product that you will never see again. you are also a part of a very long assembly line, just upstream from the TIS facility.

    Also, the "third floor" only cares about numbers. There is some new stuff happening, but its slow and regurgitated.

    Pros

    Great product, strong cash position in the market.

    Cons

    As Bob Toll gets closer to retirement and Zvi controls more of the company it is becoming more of your typical backstabbing, vindictive corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace Zvi he is not Bob Toll and never will be.

    Pros

    Great experience in learning the commercial real estate market in a large scale environment. People are more than helpful in answering any and all questions you may have.

    Cons

    They will keep you more than busy. Even though the job can be quite enjoyable you will be asked to do much beyond your job description. Be prepared to work, and work hard. Not a negative!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management does a great job of running Toll Brothers. They will expose you to a number of experiences just a short time in.
