    Pros

    They pay a good, market rate.

    Cons

    When put under stress, management at Beazer Homes will resort to belittling people indiscriminately. Apparently it's this way at all levels, in all departments, and this has just always been so. It's part of Beazer's organizational DNA, I guess.

    Some people deal with this better than others. In my better moments, I feel sorry for the people dishing out the abuse. Belittling people is really just a crutch that incompetent, stressed-out managers lean on. If you can handle it for a while, you'll make some money and learn some things. Ultimately, though, if you're a thinking, feeling human being with any sort of a craft or talent, and you don't enjoy being the punchline of a bad Dilbert cartoon, you'll find greener pastures. I did.

    Advice to Management

    I really don't have any advice to give to that sort of person other than, "go skip some stones across a duck-filled pond and think about what kind of person you really want to be."

    Pros

    Great culture and work atmosphere. Leaders give employees authority to make decisions and empower the team to be successful in any role. We all take pride in the homes we build and the customers we service.

    Cons

    Don't have any at this time.

    Pros

    Challenging, rewarding and fun. Beazer-Dallas has a great team. Beazer's product is on average at the median price point in DFW, which is a strong position. The process for customers is clearly laid out, simple and easy. Choice plan options give customers no cost structural options in most plans. The mortgage choices program means that the customers have multiple third party lenders from which to choose. Overall, Beazer is a positive atmosphere in which a sales counselor can thrive.

    Cons

    Some of the bureaucracy that comes along with working for a top ten national home builder. However, the checks and balances/accountability in place have their benefits.

    Pros

    the days go by fast when you are so busy and can't take a lunch. If you have an overbearing personality you'll survive. If you like to teach people how to do their job or give presentations on presentations you will also survive. your starting salary will appear promising at first.

    Cons

    Too many personalities that clash. A lot of fake kumbaya. If you like a challenge or something interesting to work on it's not really here. Raises are not good unless you're the company favorite. No company culture at all. All you will hear about is financial goals over and over and over and over.....

    Advice to Management

    Let us know how you will improve the work life balance and experience for us. Not just how much money you want to make. More vacation days and bagel Fridays arent enough

    Pros

    Good benefits and perks. Free breakfast

    Cons

    Division can be rude. Pay could be better. Work seems to be getting slow.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to you other departments; everything cannot be just about the Divisions.

    Pros

    Extended PTO
    Bagel Fridays (I'm really reaching here to make the 20 word minimum for pros)
    Nothing more I can remotely think of...

    Cons

    Little to no training as a new employee
    Extreme micro-management
    High turnover in all departments
    Disorganization
    Senior management and their vision are absent
    Behind the times - using SharePoint 2007 and other old solutions and programs
    Major disconnect between IT and the rest of the company
    Too much hand-holding for people who resist change
    Very dated environment - old cubes and even older bathrooms

    Advice to Management

    Let your team do their job and quit micro-managing!

    Pros

    Great access to resources and marketing tools.

    Cons

    Massive turn over in Marketing. You’re a robot, if you don’t do you work according to Kathi or your directors “way” you are always wrong. You work in fear constantly. On an upside you have great medical coverage – you will need it for the all the panic attacks you will get. A company of bullies.
