    Pros

    The company culture is what sets David Weekley apart from other production builders. I've worked for some big box builders around Austin and those are always a revolving door for all positions. At David Weekley, the company cares deeply about your growth and well being. It's a family culture and truly feels like that. The emphasis on customer satisfaction is like none other. DWH greatly cares about people, stating with their employees. There's a reason why it's been on Fortune's top 100 companies to work for for 13+ years. And another pro is that if you put in the time for just a couple years the salary and benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    In my 4 years with the company I've only ever seen promotions from within the company. While this is great, the managers in place have all been here for quite some time. I don't see myself ever having the opportunity to become a project manager.

    I worked at David Weekley Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Seems to be a great company, seems positive

    Cons

    They don’t address egregious employment issues. An employee that has repeated antagonistic/disrespectful incidents with multiple partners has been “taken care of” because of seniority. Minimum of four partners with the same issues.

    Advice to Management

    Look at continuous bad behavior, not incidental. Do not discourage reporting of vile behaviors!

    Pros

    Great company culture. Great starting pay and benefits.

    Cons

    The community in which you are placed to sell is directly connected to your success rate. Also, sharing a sales office with at least one other sales consultant using the up's system.

    Pros

    Benefits, culture, team, training, open door environment, everyone is friendly and seems to genuinely care about each other.

    Cons

    You work holidays and every weekend.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunity for people in sales who want to move up/laterally but not just to project manager or builder. Most( females )may want to move laterally but not to either of those positions and those are the only options available usually.
