    Pros

    K. Hovnanian provides structure and stability without being bureauocratic. It has the land position and financing to continue its growth. Convenient on-line training is available to employees to help them to succeed. High on teamwork. The least "political" company I've worked for. Honest management team that honors its commitments to employees.

    Cons

    This is not the company for 9-5'rs

    Pros

    Company has great culture, systems, processes and a Team approach to getting things done! Having been with the company through the up and downs of the recession now is the time for company. It is growing again with Communities and Associates.

    Cons

    None that are considered important.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the Associates, Processes, Systems and Training that will separate Hovnanian from other builders that are also in the Homebuilding market.

    Pros

    Solid land position, innovative technology and a management team that "gets" it. Smart financial decisions have prepared KHOV to come out of the downturn prepared to continue to deliver quality products in multiple successful markets. Employee contributions are recognized and awarded.

    Cons

    2016 is going to be our breakout year and the only con I can think of is we should be looking to move into other markets as well.

    Advice to Management

    Actively engage with your office and field staff as they have first hand knowledge as to what is working and what is not working.

    I have been working at K. Hovnanian Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been working in new home construction for over 10 years and have had the opportunity to work for 3 large, national Homebuilders. K. Hovnanian Homes has been far and away the best company to work for. The way management runs the business leads to a great working environment, timely closings for my buyers...which of course leads to happy homeowners.

    Cons

    This isn't something that's specific to K. Hovnanian, but trade labor shortages have made EVERY Builders' day to day operations more stressful now more than ever. Supply and demand. But the lack of highly skilled trade contractors in the business right now (installers, framers, sheetrock crews, etc.) results in more errors at the job site and delays in construction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I feel blessed to be a part of such a great family!
