      The worst company

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are none. There is nothing that I can say was great.

      Cons

      I’ve worked for a lot of companies, I’ve never been so embarrassed to work for a company in my whole entire like. They only care about money and not the employees. They will work you to death with no lunches and you have to work late to get stuff done because they don’t stop giving you work to make their build numbers. The quality of homes is embarrassing and the workmanship is sad. I had a friend who needed a wheelchair and they refused to install things to help him get through 7 doors we had to use to get in the building. Then they laid him off due to Covid and he was with them for several years and kept new people instead.
