    Toll Brothers has the spirit of teamwork paired with strong leadership support

    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Toll Brothers for almost 10 years. I feel like I've built trusting and collaborative relationships with my peers and senior management that makes coming to work feel more like coming to see my friends and business partners. Toll provides a lot of autonomy in most cases. I've had the opportunity to take on additional responsibilities over the years along with a promotion. My manager has always been supportive when I've needed time off and I feel a work-life balance is respected here.

    Cons

    No company is perfect as we're all human but from my experience, the employees and management at Toll have the best intentions and we want to see each other succeed. I've seen countless employees get promoted here as a result of their hard work, many started in entry level positions and are now in senior management roles. It seems that Toll is competitive with their compensation plans, plus we have some fun perks like use of Toll Brothers vacation homes, I've stayed in a few myself and it's quite an experience.

    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the company over 8 years and I have enjoyed every year of it! The company, even as large as it has grown has still held to its entrepreneurial roots. Which creates an atmosphere of opportunity an accountability. The company and it leadership wants to find new ways to grow the company and create new opportunities for employees to move in different directions in their career if they wish and the time is right. Senior management is open to new ideas and will listen to its employees that are seeing things day to day. They want you to succeed because that is how the company will do better overall. You feel like a partner with management that the better the company does is a direct result of us all working together.

    Cons

    The company has improved a lot over the years with embracing technology and I think could continue to improve in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the push for communication with all employees. This has improved and the more communication employees get, makes us fell more a part of the success that the company is having.

    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Customer and employee focused. Everyone in the company is on a first name basis, giving the company more of a family feel to it. Benefits are equal to or better than any of the other major corporations where I've worked. Personal time off is good, medical benes are better than most, company vacations homes are awesome, training programs, company outings, and pages of company perks and discounts through our vendors.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can heavily favor the work side if you let it...just like any other job. There are great promotional opportunities for some groups, but not enough for others. Toll Brothers runs a lean organization which means reacting to hiring needs sometimes leaving current staff short handed during key growth periods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the company, the product, and the people. We do a great job of keeping the company's future in mind and making business decisions accordingly, but additional focus on employee growth and retention could go a long way.

    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has a solid reputation for building a great product. They offer excellent benefits. One benefit that is truly unique is that they have many guesthouses - fabulous luxury guesthouses in resort destinations - that employees can use to vacation in. The leadership is very competent! Salaries are fair and given the projected growth, there should be good promotion opportunity over the next 5 years or so.

    Cons

    The industry took a big downturn over the last 7 years and many were laid off. But, many of those laid off have been hired back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep looking for ways to get better and better.

    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.

    Pros

    Project Managers have a great deal of control of their projects along with great regional support

    Cons

    Although they professed otherwise, they too were vulnerable to economic downturns just like everyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More general and project specific market and financial feasibility evaluations needed before land purchase and project commitments.
