    Pros

    Great benefits, nice co workers, nice salary for sales

    Cons

    Project managers have no clue about sales and seem to be capricious in their management style favoring some sales people without merit. Prepared to be moved with no regard to where you live, no new communities coming, 2 salespeople in communities with less than 20 lots.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure more training would help these people, they seem like a lost cause. They don't walk the talk.

    Pros

    - Compensation

    - Nothing

    - Nothing

    Cons

    In terms of the Indianapolis market:

    -The project managers are extremely full of themselves... They use derogatory terms to describe their team members.

    -Turnover rate is well above industry average.

    -Would strongly suggest a career away from DWH.

    -If you have any questions, I'm sure current/former employees would be more than happy to answer them.

    Advice to Management

    Find new management if you expect talent to stay.

    Pros

    Willing to train. Some good people.

    Cons

    There are so many meetings, phone calls etc. with home buyers which can be managed...but then the company has project meetings, builder huddles, division meetings, stage trainings, OSHA refreshers, Portfolio refreshers, quarterly meetings, planned encounters with your managers and so on. You barely have any time to build your homes let alone learn and grow.

    Pros

    Wonderful health insurance and benefits

    Cons

    No room for advancement
    Took 8 interviews just to finally get hired
    Everyone there are like robots - corporate life - so broken down and trained on what to say and how to act. They were not open to new ideas and thinking outside the box.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your project coordinators more!

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation base on performance

    Cons

    Company is having serious growing pains and is trying to get to big to fast for a private company. They are are not a top 15 employer to work for which they consistently remind you about a fortune survey. maybe top 15 home builder to work for. You feel like your cheating the customers when you see how much they charge for these homes and what it actualy cost. They are way over priced making your job so much harder.

    Advice to Management

    Austin Division needs to be completely torn down and rebuilt. Start with the purchasing department, I think their core function is to make builders jobs 10X harder than it has to be. Get more competent people and better technology.
