    I worked at Highland Homes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great management, fair bonus structure, company culture is great. Operates like a small family company. Project managers, area manager and director of construction were all great and were very approachable.

    Cons

    Base salary could be better. However, company culture and bonuses made it worth it.

    Advice to Management

    I have none. I left for a new career but find myself teaching and applying their management styles in my new job.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to sale beautiful, quality homes to families, excellent training not only in sales but construction, private company, great commission structure, great opportunity for advancement,sales counselors are given assistants and aren't expected to do too much paperwork

    Cons

    Communication between teams and departments is dismal, management at the top lacks integrity, little concern for work life balance, cutthroat internal politicking, and lying to get people on board. This company started out great because it is owned and operated by a former sales woman. She created a sales consultants dream situation for getting the most sales with the least fuss but over time the culture had begun to decline and is now rife with favoritism, sexism,and a little bit racist as well

    Advice to Management

    Focus on progressive technology and a progressive culture. No discussing your hatred of Obama during office hours please. Don't lie to get people on board and then throw them into the fray without any follow up. And hire managers who actually like people, not pretend to like people only to find 100 ways to stab them in the back.

    Pros

    Good builder to work for. They do their best to keep you close to home and are flexible. Managers are always there to help and tries to promote team outings.

    Managers can sometimes press a bit much on the numbers. Construction managers have to deal with warranties in their area, which can be overwhelming when trying to build.

    Pros

    Privately owned company with friendly and caring people. No micro management and freedomQuality Assurance Specialist - North Houston to be creative. Beautiful and quality product.

    Cons

    Sometimes management will give false hope of future advancement such as moving into a higher paying position. I have been "in training" for a full time position for almost 2 years and such a position has still not come available.
