    I worked at Beazer Homes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None unless you enjoy working for free

    Cons

    I was the 8th or 9th agent on a community in N. Las Vegas, they never paid me for 8 homes I sold, which were never started............then they quit paying draw against commission, therefore you work for free, no wonder 7 agents quit before I was unfortunate enough to accept the position.

    Advice to Management

    Quit while you are still free from prison, oh wait, I think he's already in prison..

    Pros

    Working with some great builders and customers. In sales, have the opportunity to make good income if assigned in a viable community.

    Cons

    Very combative management team. Stressful and belittling to employees. Money is taken out of commissions without knowledge. Quality of life is poor being on call 24/7 at the whim of managers.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the people that work on your team are real people with families. We spend more waking hours time with our co-workers than our families. Foster an environment to entice people to enjoy their jobs, prepare them to excel and make an impact on the company from every department.

    Pros

    You can have the opportunity to earn a great income...

    Cons

    ....until management takes away that opportunity

    Advice to Management

    The turnover rate of employees under the current management team is outrageous. Perhaps it's the management team that needs to change.

    I have been working at Beazer Homes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent health insurance covered by the employer. Corporate pays for a decent training experience in Atlanta with a chance to meet the almighty APM (Alan Merrill), narcissus incarnate serving as CEO.

    Cons

    Top down, Beazer is run as a tyrannical structure that allows little to no room for error or bad impressions. Management locally makes land acquisition decisions that can make or break a sales agent's career. If management does not approve of your suggestions or attitude, they will dismiss you without so much as a courteous two week notice. No coaching, encouragement, or conference is available to improve employee morale/performance...whichever happens to be lacking. To succeed, you must submit wholeheartedly to your division president, the CEO, CMO, and sales VP. Don't like our way? Goodbye!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your assets, the most valuable thing you have on the front line of your business are your sales agents. Encouraging earnest discourse only furthers the entire company and allows for growth on all fronts.

    Pros

    Coworkers were an absolute pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Micro management and intimidation. Upper management has their heads in the clouds and unrealistic expectations. Until there's a major change at the top, I'd steer clear of the Maryland Division of Beazer Homes USA.

    Advice to Management

    Get a serious clue about the talented sales staff you currently have and treat them accordingly.

    Pros

    Turn and burn environment that allows you to make money if you play the game. Benefits are decent but expensive.

    Cons

    Unprofessional work environment, inconsistent management, no leadership and zero emphasis on customer service. There is no quality control which leads to a below average customer service rating. Homes are ok, nothing special.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive than reactive. Lead by example rather then out of fear of losing your job.

    Pros

    Great Marketing, great support and training

    Cons

    Have to be able to sell in a structured atmosphere. Sitting in a model when no one is coming in the door does get boring sometimes. You have to learn to make good use of your spare time.

    Advice to Management

    Hang on to and reward the people who are making your money. Show respect to those who have earned it,

    Pros

    Good Pay, Flexible workplace, left to produce, you must produce or you will be gone.

    Cons

    Favorites get better communities and breaks, fairness is lacking, must work most holidays, long hours, management out of touch with today's market, low morale, High new home prices led to low sales. Low sales means low pay. Eat lunch as you work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Take time to shop all competition. Treat people better.

    Pros

    Local division is very caring towards their employees-treated as a member of the family
    Commissions paid are very decent
    Build a very good home
    Care about their customers
    Good warranty and after sales service

    Cons

    Upper management is taking more of a micro management approach
    a lot of "Big Brothering"
    Some decisions made out of fear of losing their jobs or their relevance-not necessarily because the decision makes any sense

    Advice to Management

    Have more confidence in the people you have hired. If they are going to be held accountable for results, they should have the power to effect change.
