    I have been working at D.R. Horton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits. Fortune 500 Company but each location is run independently enough that your role makes a difference in its' success. Great events and appreciation of employees is noticed. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Would prefer PTO instead of sick/vacation days split. Salaries are not the greatest but discretionary bonus program kind of makes up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that the support staff is just as important as upper management - pay can be a little off balance. Consider PTO instead of either having to use sick or vacation days.

    Pros

    Being with a company that values you enough, to have benefits and opportunities to provide homes that are appointed and constructed the quality levels that you expect in the price point they are in. No cut corners, allowing me to sell them from a positive aspect and as a trusted advisor to the clients we serve.

    WE Outwork our competition, so longer hours, but it is for the betterment of our company, and the end result is a win for the employee as well.

    Keep us moving forward.
