    Keep up the good work!!

    I have been working at Drees Homes full-time

    Pros

    Potential for bonusing. Most employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    Recent company wide survey indicated the management does not listen to their employees, Austin Office Management is technology challenged and lacks forward thinking, Design Center Selections are not processed timely forcing estimators to followup which cuts into estimating completion time. Micromanagement, Lacking information before starting projects.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees.
