    Pros

    Very professional environment with many exciting opportunities to learn the real estate homebuilding industry. Best career experience.

    Cons

    No complaints! The downturn in the real estate market as a result of the recession was why they had to reduce staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To H.R. management: just don't talk down to employees as if they are children.

    Pros

    General Lyon is a great man. Understand work/life balance. The Company offers a great benefits package. Reputation from outside looking in is good.

    Cons

    Exec. Management team appears clueless. Management team does not share vision of company with employees. Always seem to be "selling" the flavor of the month to employees. Real lack of experience within the Exec. Management team. Currently in bankruptcy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees, ask them for feedback. Management team is using theory from the 1980s. Share the vision of the Company. Better yet, have a visioin.
