    Pros

    Just completed one week of the company's Strong Start training in Orlando, Florida. The trainer, accommodations and content were first class. We had no distractions, we had fun and we came out of there prepared to conquer the planet.

    Cons

    Don't see any just yet.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with the strong start program for all new sales and marketing related employees.

    Pros

    The company is professional, and seeks to produce a great product for their customers. Highly focused on customer satisfaction and doing the job right.

    Cons

    Advancement can be slow, though it does happen. Home building is highly competitive and the industry is constantly seeking ways to improve profitability, this can be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to promote from within. Don't be afraid to walk away from a bad / difficult customer.

    Avoid this company, horrible processes and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    An exemplary leadership trait is to always support your personnel and never tolerate disrespectful or degrading comments to employees in the workplace.
    Harassment should never be tolerated and in this time period especially, if it occurs, it should be stopped and dealt with swiftly.

    Pros

    You learn the ins and out of the home building world. Good coworkers on the sales teams

    Cons

    Company only truly cares for themselves. They don't provide you the tools for proper success. On top of that there are numerous employees who have quit or took opportunities else where, who have turned in their respected two weeks, worked.. got a sale.. and then were not paid out on the sale because the company said they wont be here to settle the home months later. Therefore they are letting many employees work for the good of the company with no financial reward or incentive to the employee. This is bad business. Don't trust an employer who looks for ways to not pay their front lines.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent. Dont lie. Be genuine. Put yourself in the shoes of your employees and own up for the failed policies and procedures of an outdated company.
