    I have been working at Beazer Homes full-time

    Pros

    i work on a great team, everyone pulls their weight and is driven to succeed together

    Cons

    it's OTP, but at least it's on top of a MARTA station so if you live in town, you don't have to drive.

    Advice to Management

    continue working towards a culture of transparency and openness. support your employees not only by offering great benefits and perks but by supporting their ideas.

    Pros

    There's a lot to get done so it's a great place to make an impact and see you results relatively quickly. They also have an awesome PTO plan.

    Cons

    You very much have your own 'swim lane' and at times it can be hard to cross into another lane to collaborate on a project.

    Advice to Management

    Put a focus on flexible working with ATL traffic only getting worse. Trust your employees and embrace a flexible work environment that allows us to work from home or adjust hours to avoid traffic - so long as it's not compromising the success of projects.

    I worked at Beazer Homes full-time

    Pros

    None I can think of

    Cons

    As a sales consultant in a new home community, all they do is look for ways to trip you up. It used to be a good place to work but the Tampa division is in utter turmoil: back stabbing, "gotcha moments" and blame shifting are daily occurrences. There is virtually no one in this division that has been here more than one year. What does that tell you? The CEO is an arrogant little nothing that is always trying to prove he is smarter than you. He often interacts with lower level staff and every interaction sooner or later devolves into a "gotcha" moment. Stay away unless you like abuse.

    Advice to Management

    You claim to have a culture of C.T.I.O.U- You know it is bull crap. (CTIOU stands for Competitiveness, Transparency, Integrity, Openness and Urgency.) NONE of these "values" are present here or elsewhere in this company. Hypocrites and liars, all of you.

    I worked at Beazer Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a good starter job. Had some opportunity to learn the industry, in a limited environment. Team sizes stayed smaller. (Good and bad).

    Cons

    No upward mobility available and the pay was sub par. Management didn’t have a care for their employees greater growth, whether it was at company or just overall career as a person.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees more and their career growth... not just the business bottom line.

    Pros

    I found nothing worse praising this company about in any shape or form.

    Cons

    Quality of the staff. Quality of the homes. There really aren't any words to how disgusting this company's practices are.

    Advice to Management

    Hire builders that know what they're doing and allow them to take care of the customers.

    Pros

    There really aren't any pros

    Cons

    Hard to take time off, tons of take and little give by management, micromanaging to the nth degree

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees and maybe they will actually stick around

    Pros

    There are no pros for me at this time

    Cons

    Dysfunctional environment. Its a good chance if your narcissistic, psychotic or a sociopath you will fit in, be rewarded, praised and keep your job. If you do what your supposed to do, respect the customers and complete your work you'll be a target and bullied and possibly lose your job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting go of the good people that come there and do what they were hired to do. Stop employing two faced hypocritical employees that rather try to bully than be productive

    Pros

    Company is fortune 500. Company provides laptop and phone. Company is rated number one in customer service. Company has work all over US.

    Cons

    Too many tasks that are expected that are outside of job duties. If trades do not clean site they are not backcharged, the superintendent is expected to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Hold trades accountable more.

    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.
