    I worked at D.R. Horton as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a fairly relaxed atmosphere with a group of people that were dedicated to the job. It was also easy to communicate ideas or trouble shoot problems.

    Cons

    While I was there, there were a lot of personnel changes that made the job feel very insecure.

    Pros

    There are many opportunity for bonuses in excess of 10K per year and there is a good culture of letting you do your job without much resistance, as long as you're doing it well.

    Cons

    Not many. Just a lot of work especially if you're in a busy subdivision. You can feel underhanded at times if you do not stay on top of everything as it comes along.

    Advice to Management

    have a separate department coordinate the walk throughs.

    Pros

    Not a very hard job. Room for advancement after 6 months or so. Just depends on your location and situation.

    Cons

    Terrible management and lack of resources. Almost powerless at times. Could be a good job but depends on where you are put.

    Advice to Management

    All depends on who your area manager is. In my case, not enough man power and terrible subs. But otherwise could be good job.

    Pros

    Company isn't going anywhere. Best in nation for 13 years by volume.

    Cons

    Good Ol' boys club. If you don't hunt or fish, be prepared to be ostracized. If you are a woman, be prepared to have your butt slapped or be treated lesser than male counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    They won't take it. Set in their old school country boy, NYSE-is-all-that-matters ways.
