Superior and continuous education to exceed expectations.

    Pros

    Decent benefits and time off. Work-life balance encouraged. Most people are very friendly and pleasant to work with. Fairly casual environment when it pertains to dress-code.

    Cons

    Not much upward movement. Most people leave the company to further their careers. Although work-life balance is encouraged, the amount of work expected does not allow for such a balance. More diversity (culturally and in management positions) would bring the company to the 21st century as how more of the U.S. is represented (not just "Conservative" )

    Advice to Management

    Management should find ways of acknowledging the supporting staffs hard work and commitment to contributing to quality products and services that Shea produces. This should not come in empty "thank you's" or certificates of acknowledgments. Something a mot more tangible/valuable would go a long way. Seven Habits should be led by example.

    I have been working at Shea Homes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employees are professional, nice to work with and the benefits are good.
    Onsite there is a health club with a large swimming pool, a small market place as well as a full restaurant and there's also a spa.
    The area is always neat and clean.
    The job isn't hard, there's just a lot of work (which can make the day go by pretty fast).

    Cons

    Working weekends...EVERY weekend.
    There needs to be some sort of rotation so that a social life is possible.
    This part of the job is devastating and really wears on you after a while.

    Advice to Management

    All sales staff should have some sort of weekend rotation, even if it's only one weekend a month.
