Pros

If you're looking for an environment where you can spend all day socializing, playing dirty politics, dealing with bureaucracy, and interacting with the most close-minded, unprofessional, and fake colleagues, then this is the place for you.

Cons

The work at all levels is not challenging, rote, out-dated, inefficient, and no one wants to change a thing. They claim to be "cutting edge" but it's all talk. The knowledge, experience, and expertise to bring the company into the Millenium does not exist; any attempts to "raise the bar" result in a company-wide collaborate effort to quickly, expel the poor soul. If you've ever read the book "21 Dirty Tricks at Work", everyone at this company is very proficient at the swift application of these tactics.

Advice to Management

Wake up! All those who you think are dedicated, loyal confidants working tirelessly for the best interest of the company are actually working tirelessly to continue maintaining the major cover-up of costly business mistakes, hiding their incompetencies, and keeping the company stagnant in order to continue racking up on unearned bonuses, coerced promotions, and fabricated accomplishments.

  1. "All talk and no action from this company! Amazing that they are still in business. Executives have zero integrity."

    I worked at K. Hovnanian Homes (More than a year)

    Pros

    Love to spend money on very creative projects. Great at advertising. Opportunities for advancement with in the company. Talk a good game.

    Cons

    The money they pay executives is a waste. Their Exec Management says one thing and does another. Do not honor their word or commitments.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to college and relearn how to run a company.

    Pros

    The company is committed to deliver a quality product at a good price to the consumer and stands behind their product. Treated employees and customers fairly.

    Cons

    Management changes could be quick and dramatic, with no forewarning.
    Corporate office middle management and staff in N.J. believed they had the answer to every problem, even ones they weren't familiar with. Too many experts with too little real experience. Often wondered if people got paid more for every slide in their PowerPoint presentations!

    Advice to Management

    Corporate management needs to leave local issues to local management. Make decisive decisions instead of just incremental changes.
