    Pros

    Get to pick my own schedule throughout the day (as long as it is reasonable).

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Beazer Homes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the regular employees are very good people being abused in the same way.

    Cons

    Lots of micro management, condescending remarks, non-constructive criticism, and threatening behavior from management. This may be due to money problems at the division level.

    Advice to Management

    Seek counseling focusing on people skills and how to positively motivate you team. Negative reinforcement only brings negative results. Possibly look into treatments for a Napoleon Complex and/or extreme narcissism.

    Develop a more extensive on-boarding program. Create a foundation at the Corporate level (2-3 days) and continue at the Divisional level (12-14 weeks), led by a mentor in the Division.
    Develop a Management/Mentor training program that will provide support during on-boarding new hires.
