    I worked at The Ryland Group full-time (More than 3 years)


    Top 5 builder. Management trusted you to do your job and did not micro manage every aspect of your job.


    They merged with Standard Pacific to become Cal Atlantic. In the Raleigh market, the Ryland guys were made to feel like outsiders and was no longer a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to the good things from both teams tied into a merger. Don't try to belittle the smaller groups accomplishments.
