    I worked at KB Home as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working in a nice, comfortable new home in growing areas of town offering home ownership to first time home buyers was the only good thing about working for this company

    Cons

    untrained, non-supportive sales managers using aggressive language and actions toward sales associates, Unrealistic sales quotas. Assigned communities are typically the furthest from the sales associates home making work life balance non-existant

    Advice to Management

    Train your sales management team. Leadership qualities like mutual respect, honesty and compassion go a very long way to growing a dynamic team of true sales professionals.

    Pros

    There are some very small rewards but the cons outweigh the pros

    Cons

    Lots, forget about your family life, KB will be your life. Favoritism, lack of respect for its sales force. Promotes an unhealthy working environment amongst sales partners.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales people, take them seriously, show respect, consideration and true appreciation. Cut the favoritism and the back stabbing, be honest with them and adequate compensation for hard work and show loyalty to your people.
