    I have been working at KB Home full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is high energy and if you're careful, you can get along with most everyone. Coworkers are nice and office is a friendly, not hostile environment. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible. Good luck making it, it takes a while to make money, so only join if you can survive poverty for a year. There is a lot of backstabbing, things swept under the rug by management, and bad behavior that is rewarded for some reason. Management will bother you on your days off, so don't think you'll actually be able to rest. Hard, hard work. Horrible work/life balance.
