    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.

    I worked at Toll Brothers full-time

    Pros

    Based on my experiences I would recommend investing in this company. Pay is decent but not commensurate with workload. Well established company. There are and have been some really great people that have worked with the company, but most of the really good ones find a way to leave before too long.

    Cons

    The company really could care less about their people and make it very clear that everyone is replaceable. If you have a young family, it can be a real challenge for you and your loved ones. High stress environment. Although things have turned for the better since the housing downturn, they are still running on bare bones from a staffing perspective. As a result, things get missed and continue to get missed until it has to go to Senior Management, and then, after they have burn out their people, the swoop in and try and help. They are a very reactive versus proactive company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It may be time to start filling more of those positions that were eliminated back in 2007 & 2008......

    I worked at Toll Brothers as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Overall the people were great. Managers are welcoming and very capable. Questions are welcome. Full-time employees can register to reserve vacation days at company luxury vacation homes in many cities around the country.

    Cons

    Offices are very spare in an anonymous office park. IT hardware and software is very outdated, frequent down times. Decisions are typically made quite slowly. Employment may not be stable as luxury home development is highly driven by the economic climate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a consultant to streamline business process, modernize IT and sales offices.

    Pros

    Let me start out by saying this is a review of TBI Mortgage, a subsidiary of Toll Brothers

    Autonomy, no one is over you neck seeing what you are doing and monitoring every phone call that you make.

    Cons

    They completely lie to your face regarding compensation and pay. Multiple people were told they would make over $100k. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM! At best you can make $60k all the while being constantly stressed. They do not give you the resources nor the support to be successful. They will give you a pipeline of 80 loans and then tell reprimanded you for not "speaking with costumers". I have worked at 2 different banks and one broker shop since the new regulation of 2008 and this is the lowest paying company in the industry. You make $100 per loan....let me say that again you will make $100 per loan that you close. If you are lucky you will have 2 team members who can do the same and then you can make $300 dollars. They dangle other bonuses you can earn and give a base salary that a librarian can make and then tell you that you are being properly compensated. This place is a joke I am so glad I left and I hope anyone out there stays clear away. This company lies and you will be stuck in someone else's mess and then get yelled at for not being able to clean it up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If I was Toll Brothers Senior Management I would scratch the entire mortgage company and place their faith in another reputable bank who can actually deliver. I am sure TBI Mortgage drains their bottom line and is absolutely wasting shareholders money.

    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.
