Pros

Top Ten builder. Energy efficient homes.

Cons

Working here was...........well an experience. Extremely high turnover at both management and lower levels. Many company policies didn't make sense. Sometimes it seemed that management didn't know what they were doing and I often wondered how certain people got the jobs they had. Some of the high level managers were alarmingly young and seemed to lack experience. The way the division operated was confusing. Some departments were overstaffed and some were extremely understaffed. This may have been the case because Division and Regional upper management did not listen to or respect the mid-level division managers who are much more in tune with staffing needs.

Advice to Management

What works in Arizona does not work everywhere. The Divisions should have more of a say when it comes to operating in their respective regions. People who have lived and worked in an area for many years tend to know more about the local market than someone in Arizona looking at a spreadsheet. Hire people who have experience working in the local area, not people who are from other parts of the State and don't know the details of the local market.

    I have been working at Meritage Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Higher than average pay if they need you in a hard to fill position but you will have to negotiate for it. Some people at the divisional level are great to work with.

    Cons

    Turnover is extremely high at this company. You will not be trained in anything but you will be expected to complete your duties. Ivory tower management so do not expect working solutions if you run into an issue. Upper management expects you to work weekends and holidays and will throw you under the bus whenever it is convenient. There are no career development opportunities and people that are in the right clique are promoted.
