    I worked at Centex Homes full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, nice people.

    Cons

    My division had religious right wingers which made me feel like a cultural outsider. It wasn't an entrepreneurial environment. Employees did their work and were afraid to suggest changes to outdated processes. I don't know if the environment is still like this since I was there several years ago.

    Pros

    Great sales training program and development. Nice home discount and work environment.

    Cons

    Hard hours, but that is true for all home sales. Working alone for most of the day in an empty house.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more hands on approach with new employees in teaching them how to network with realtors. Maybe have a "mentor" for the sales person who takes the new employee for a day to show them how to work their network.

    I have been working at Centex Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Possibilities for growth, but only if you can brown-nose your way into staying during the cyclical times

    Cons

    Cyclical business, so don't plan on making this a career. The average person will be out the door during one of the down-turns in the housing industry.
