    Develop a Management/Mentor training program that will provide support during on-boarding new hires.

    Pros

    Awesome 6 weeks PTO plan
    They care about their employees
    Upward mobility is available for those that want to grow with the company

    Cons

    Run very lean and mean
    Because we run lean and mean we have a small group (like a family) and sometimes that mean you have personalities clashes.

    I worked at Beazer Homes full-time

    Pros

    Not enough Pros to comment

    Cons

    First, pay attention externally. Their stock is trading dangerously close to their all-time low. Look at the other nationals (LEN, PHM, MTH) all trading at several multiples of their 2008 range lows. Why? Why does the BOD allow this to continue?
    I would submit the behavior and sophomoric management style of the CEO, combined with his "fake goal" of 2B10 (don't goals usually have commitment dates? Not 'we will sell $2B.....eventually') have driven this company first up in 2009, then spiraling down now. He is the largest revenue-killing CEO in the business with his nonsensical Friday "I love to hear myself talk for 90 minutes" meeting, unproductive metrics, and a team that is afraid to cross him. Most of the Senior Leadership Team is ill-equipped for their roles and couldn't survive a week at a leading competitor, but the CEO likes to be surrounded by scared, incompetent, overworked minions. Meanwhile, the competition has zoomed by this organization in every way. One competitor once described the CEO and CFO as "One sees the glass as half empty and the other thinks he invented water."
    On the ground, you will work hard for little to no gratitude for a disgruntled boss that will probably be fired next month. It's kind of like hell with a paycheck and an occasional "culture" event where people pretend to like each other and like they all aren't out interviewing already.

    In short, the absolute worst company I've ever witnessed, let alone work for.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Board of Directors - Clean house at the top. the losses are stacking up. How long will you allow it to continue, as the accountability has reached your table now?
    Management - If you accepted feedback, it would be provided. You don't listen, and that's why you lose. You lose great people (#1 internal survey comment of 2018 - BZH cannot retain good people), you lose margin and profitability, and you lose to the competition.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Beazer Homes full-time

    Pros

    Claim to take concerns of discrimination seriously but...

    Cons

    ..they charge EXCESSIVE home site premiums for the orientation of the lot. This effects MANY of the Indian buyers who follow Vaastu as their belief system and not a "preference". THIS IS DEFINITELY A VIOLATION OF EQUALITY IN VALUE!

    Advice to Management

    Stop over charging the Indian population for something that ONLY a Vaastu believer would find of value which in turn DOES NOT show a fair and equal opportunity based on someone's spiritual beliefs.

    I have been working at Beazer Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I’ve worked in the IT department for close to 6 years and there are many good things about working here at Beazer, I have a great boss who has challenged me to grow my career. The software here is written in clean code. Pluralsight accounts are provided for career advancement.

    Also every employee gets 6 weeks vacation on Date of hire

    Cons

    My first few years here at Beazer the moral was low and the turnover high. Things have since changed and I would consider this a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employees and improve the company. The last 3 years Upper management has done a great job in doing that

    Expecting Employees to wear multiple hats to the point where they aren't able to excel.

    Little opportunity or explanation for job advancement even if you've been with the company for a while.
    Not compensated properly for the amount of work you put in

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about what the job actually entails
    Higher pay and recognition for employees that are loyal to the company and try their hardest everyday
    More team building activities outside of work (Braves Games, Paintball, Hiking, Company Team Building Vacation Trips etc.)

    Feedback is taken seriously and everyone has a voice. I love the collaborative environment and everyone wants to win.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, fellow employees supportive and appreciative

    Cons

    Upper management vindictive and only concerned about their position

    Advice to Management

    Plan and prepare a backup plan for when employees are not there. Don't assess position based on surveys or web audits. Upper management needs to be accountable for providing proper backup to the position so that employees can have time off. Position is set up to fail unless proper systems and backup are in place.
