      Hostile work environment Avoid this employer

      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.

      The Beazer family would be heartbroken

      Pros

      Some very good people who believe they can make a difference. That is about all I can say at this point.

      Cons

      The biggest problem is the CEO. He manages and micromanages through intimidation and bullying. He screams and belittles and I have never heard one good thing about him. It's offensive to have to fill out and sign an ethics agreement knowing upper level management does not live by these rules. The turnover in division offices is crippling and it is because of the toxic environment created by the CEO. Upper management throws middle management under the bus to save their jobs. Micromanaging, smoke and mirrors and deception are present on every level. Good people turn bad or leave. The stress is a constant presence that leaves you exhausted and dreading the next morning when you have to go back to work. The CEO pays himself ridiculous amounts of money and bonuses and sells off land to show a profit (more smoke and mirrors) it is by far the worst culture I have been a part of. It's sad because I know there are good people that stay believing they can make a difference, but no one can until the king sitting at the top of the pile has his throne taken away. George Beazer was a hard working stone mason and built Beazer on the foundation of a value builder. He wanted everyday people to be able to afford a new home. Today's CEO wants to line his pockets and has no respect for anyone that works for Beazer. The people take on the personality of their leader. Need I say more?

      Company is taking my soul

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good people scattered throughout but they are hanging on until another opportunity comes along - actually, people have left for further commutes and less pay...ummm...what does that say about the employees willingness to stick around

      Cons

      Work overload, cash is low, spending is high, people throw each other under the bus every chance they get to avoid the yelling from the CEO and CFO. New people come in as the next best thing and then they get the "stink" after about a year. No one is as smart as the executive team so there is no reason to work hard because eventually you will be let go because you can't multiply 7 times 8
