No opinion of CEO

Pros

organization, field staff knowledge, deep pockets, marketing budget, on time sub payment = quick sub response

Cons

long long hours, often unrealistic sales expectations, mid-level managements' desire to shine leads to forced fluffing of numbers, mid-level management lack of practical knowledge

Advice to Management

Spend more time on site and less time in the office (sales offices don't count). Talk to and listen to the construction managers. Windshield site reviews are never good.

    "Awful Company to Work For!"

    Pros

    The best thing about work at this company is that the benefits are very good. They probably have one of the best benefits package in the industry.

    Cons

    Wow, where do I begin? This company has no regards for its employees. They are very unfair and will forget that you have a family. Although we are completely understaffed, they continue to pile on more and more work that should be handled by upper management. Marketing does not do its job to market the communities. They instead claim that they are so busy and that the people working in the communities need to think of ways to market their own communities, which takes away from selling and time with customers. All this always leads to unhappy homeowners. In addtion they take FOREVER to build a home! For a small 2000 sq. ft. home they will take about 12 months. While other large builders can build the same home in 4 months. The pay is awful and the hours are long. Expect to work more than 50 hours a week and forget about having any days off.

    Advice to Management

    Automate all of the reports and bring all systems up to date. Rotate weekends so employees can spend time with their families at least one weekend a month. Also, keep in consideration that everyone has a personal to take care of. It is not all about Toll Brothers.

    Build a quality product
    Free Golf

    Corporate Entity/HQ very professional and decent

    Cons

    Management is too concerned with status and position
    No mentorship whatsoever
    Senior PMs are somewhat distant and disinterested in day to day operations
    Lacks Leadership

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and develop them. Everyone either hates it there or loves it there and it all depends on whether you are in the PMs in-crowd, which is just poor leadership.
