    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    PM's bonus should be based off of how many homes they close.

    I worked at Toll Brothers full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    It 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.

    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (more than an year)

    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

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

    Cons

    Corporate 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 ManagementAdvice

    Waste of breath to say anything, nothing will ever change

    I worked at Toll Brothers as a contractor

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management treats all employees the same which is poor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees vs. assuming your employees are all just complainers

    I worked at Toll Brothers full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Cares 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.

    Cons

    Does 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 ManagementAdvice

    Rethink 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.
