    I have been working at LGI Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    LGI is a haven for top performers. The company is full of top quality people in all roles, across the country. The CEO and COO know everyone by name and personally train all new sales people. Constant training and process improvement lead to ever improving results and opportunities. The growth of the company has been astronomical and very well managed. There is an amazing company culture that leadership is genuinely committed to. Best place I've ever worked hands down. Headhunters call me weekly and it's EASY to say that I'm not interested. It's easy to wake up and go to work every morning because I love my job and the people I work with and for. If you are genuinely ambitious and have an open mind, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    None. Having an open mind will be your key to success here. If you don't buy in to the culture, you will struggle. The culture is genuine and not superficial as mentioned in some other reviews on this site.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Great job being open to improvements and rewarding employees.

    I have been working at LGI Homes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the nearly 11 years I have been part of this dynamic organization, my expectations have consistently been exceeded by the execution of our growth strategy, the simplicity of The Most Powerful Sales System in The World, the insight and belief from upper level leadership and every bullet point of our Culture. The fact that we are able to help our employees reach their goals is one of the best feelings that we get as leaders at LGI. Watching an individual from our particular region sign their name to close out The Nasdaq Stock Exchange was an unforgettable experience That has become a highlight of this career as a leader with LGI. This is made much more simple by having true leaders at the top that paved the way and created a process for management and for sales that is bulletproof. We get to help families reach their dream of ownership which is truly a gift! The emphasis on our core values is genuine and always makes me feel like I’m working with the right company because every decision is made with our values in mind. We get to work with incredible people with loads of talent and it is a never ending focus to grow through our goals. The goals I have personally reached are beyond my wildest dreams from a decade ago. LGI Homes made this possible and I strongly believe that there is no better place on the planet for me to call home, and for all of these reasons, I am eternally grateful!

    Cons

    There was a time that I would have said that work life balance was a challenge but I have found a way to be more effective with the time I have and if we do things correctly it’s not hard to get time off. The biggest blessing is that when you’re off, you have peace of mind that you’re with The best company ever! For those in sales you also have no shortage of money so that you can do whatever you want, whenever you want. So I have to say, there are no cons!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you so much for placing confidence in me, I will continue to focus on the mission! You rock and so do I!

    I have been working at LGI Homes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A handful of very qualified, competent employees who are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Witnessed utterly unprofessional and in some cases extremely inappropriate behavior. Upper management's negligence in addressing problem employees and middle managers cultivates a hostile work environment. Employee morale is low. Contrary to what some of the responses to these reviews would suggest, bringing issues to HR and upper management's attention proves pointless and in some cases detrimental to the complainant. Good ol' boys culture may lend itself to the field, but is not suitable for an office setting in a growing company.

    Advice to Management

    Should require a higher standard of conduct, especially of people you put in management positions. Actions are not reflective of your "core values".

    Pros

    mission of moving renters to owners
    rewards trips, lunches
    LGI Homes has a great product and outstanding local management in my market. You can make money in certain locations but be prepared to work very long hours especially on Saturday and Sunday.

    Cons

    hours, condescending treatment of lower level employees
    total control of sales staff in the office
    GI Homes has a great product and outstanding local management in my market. Upper management looks great and engaged on the surface but are really condescending disguised as politeness. Don't be fooled just because they know your name. The company is growing and doing very well so they are doing something right. If you are prepared to follow the "plan" with no deviation and play the game, this could be a great opportunity. If you like to be appreciated and your knowledge and experience and like to be creative, look elsewhere.
    The Culture is really like cross between a Cult and old fashioned mental fraternity hazing.

    Advice to Management

    embrace change, realize different markets and employees have different needs

    Pros

    Several high level leaders are very knowledgeable, great trainers and are great at making you think they care about your success.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, once you're out of Houston these leaders lose visibility and don't seem to care about the work environment as long as the numbers are met.

    So, it's really all lip service to what we call our "core values." The management team I work with lie, lack integrity and are unethical. They often create a story line to fit a narrative and are able to get away with it due to little oversight from the division president.

    It's an mistrustful environment with very little teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Engage all employees. Hear all sides before making decisions.
