    Pros

    • Great People to work with • Employee discounts (even though you had to jump through tons of hoops) • Good medical coverage • Decent benefits package

    Cons

    • Only partial remote - even though all meetings were remote • The role & responsibilities didn't match the pay • Job role didn't match the scope of work • Responsibilities weren't defined as the position was new to them • CMO was pretty abrasive and not a nice person • Platform they used was antiquated and very expensive (typical platforms were ten of thousands of dollars cheaper; the money could of been given to the employee) Also the main platform they used wasn't mentioned on the job listing. • Not enough vacation • Poor training & onboarding

    Micromanagement Mediocrity

    Mar 26, 2022 - Land Acquisition Analyst in Irvine, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I got paid a reasonable salary.

    Cons

    Horrible micromanagement, I spent more time reporting than actually buying land. Land acquisition was 90% formatting/use of ancient unsophisticated financial systems and only 10% actually making money. Rude and mediocre middle/upper management. We were called 'cockroaches' for leaving at 5pm on a Friday, the mentality here is that you owe the company everything and should worship management for giving you a job, very old school company. I was discussing work with coworkers when a senior corporate manager yelled at us to 'get back to work', I laughed because I thought he was joking, and he got mad telling us to go back to our desks, which is super weird because we were just doing our job. All of these horrible people still work here, but every good coworker left. This place traps losers and makes anyone competent run for the hills, incompetence seems to increase with tenure. The CEO is a bizarre spoiled rich kid, I have worked with people far richer and smarter than him who showed employees much more respect. When he goes on land tours it's like the King of England is in town, he is very demanding and treats employees like his wait staff. He won't stay at the same hotel or even eat with high level division executives, super weird. This company is pretty much the laughingstock of home builders, if you desperately need a job, you can give it a try, but this should be your last resort.
