    A Good Company to Learn

    Oct 23, 2022 - Land Acquisition Analyst 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    It's a good place to learn. On the land side you are exposed to everything. Land, finance, marketing, legal, and engineering.

    Cons

    The process in putting together packages for land acquisition is a bit dated. You will learn a lot and serves as a good training ground. However, most people leave to go elsewhere.
