I worked at William Lyon Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very professional environment with many exciting opportunities to learn the real estate homebuilding industry. Best career experience.

Cons

No complaints! The downturn in the real estate market as a result of the recession was why they had to reduce staff.

Advice to Management

To H.R. management: just don't talk down to employees as if they are children.

    Pros

    General Lyon is a great man. Understand work/life balance. The Company offers a great benefits package. Reputation from outside looking in is good.

    Cons

    Exec. Management team appears clueless. Management team does not share vision of company with employees. Always seem to be "selling" the flavor of the month to employees. Real lack of experience within the Exec. Management team. Currently in bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees, ask them for feedback. Management team is using theory from the 1980s. Share the vision of the Company. Better yet, have a visioin.

    I worked at William Lyon Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is more entrepreneurial than many companies and looks to take advantage of the markets it is in by allowing employees a good degree of latitude.

    Cons

    The upper management tends to look at opportunities from their income and lifestyle choices which leads to skewed product decisions which are not very well supported by the market.

    Advice to Management

    Ask for input from the rank and file employees who represent the larger portion of the market to see if they understand and appreciate the value of what is being built.
