    Great place to learn.

    Assistant Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    ProsIf you are new to development this place is great to learn. They have enough money behind them that they aren't as concerned with the little mistakes as they are with keeping the machine moving.

    ConsThere are a lot of software programs specific to Toll that will take time to learn. There are a lot of systems because they are so large, it can get messy with paper work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPM's bonus should be based off of how many homes they close.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Benefits, To many bosses

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great at making money. Not great for employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are some great people who work or worked there, and that's big plus: But you won't find a lot of ex employees who sing the praises of Toll Brothers. If you are sales person during a boon time, you'll make some good money.

    ConsIt is normal to work 6 day weeks, upper management is not very creative in marketing and it's very difficult to have a long career here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Horsham, PA

    ProsTalk 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to hire great people, you can train skill, you cannot train personality and determination.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Luxury Home Builder not a Luxury Employer

    Contracts (Former Employee)

    ProsThere is not one good thing I can say about this company

    ConsCorporate does not care about employees at branch locations unless they are looking for another job. You can and will be fired for having a resume posted to a job board. Massive lay-offs every November after close of fiscal year in October. Employees Christmas bonus is given to a charity of corporates choice. Benefits are below average. Training is specific to location working at and not tranferable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWaste of breath to say anything, nothing will ever change

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Quality of working with Toll Brothers is about as poor as the quality of their homes

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCo-workers were good but most employees had been doing the same job for years and didn't care to do anything else.

    ConsManagement treats all employees the same which is poor

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees vs. assuming your employees are all just complainers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Does not care about people at all

    Site Manager (Former Employee)
    Lincoln Park, NJ

    ProsCares only about making money. Uses poor quality materails and wants things done fast rather than well. Shows very little integrity in business dealings. Makes promises knowing they will break them.

    ConsDoes not care about employees or customers. Cares only about its completely false image. Asks an awful lot of employuees but most get back very lilttle while the guys at the top make out swell.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRethink your whole business model. start caring about quality, not just adding money to the company coffers. start treating employees as human beings with lives, not just as a means to making more money.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
