    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.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Rules and procedures are outlined. More than enough work for office managers/regional office managers; will not be bored.

    Cons

    Sales people focused. Not much recognition for non-sales positions. Not a family oriented company. Regional Office Manager salary does not adequately cover time worked.

    Pros

    The company itself, the way they have a process for everything & it works. Also they really listen to the employees themselves and uphold core values that most people should really have but struggle to uphold. They involve everyone no matter what position you're at in activities and every year treat employees to a dream trip which they call the circle of excellence! Plus even the CEO gets involved with training! This company is a true example of a great company to work for, & that is why they win every year in the DFW Area!

    Cons

    I would have to say wish I had a bigger desk! :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing because we have an amazing management team for this area!

    I worked at LGI Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    By far the best sales training I have received. The company does a good job ensuring everyone understands the sales process and that every sales rep is ready to take their first customer the LGI way. Yearly trips are great. Great relationships built with amazing and talented people throughout the real estate industry.

    Cons

    The senior management is very rude and belittles employees. Corporate leaders love to intimidate employees at their work locations and harbor an environment where everyone feels like they have to walk on eggshells. When they ask you how things are going, people are afraid to speak up and really be honest because they take offense and fire you. The company prides itself on never laying off any employees, yet the fire people left and right. It's a revolving door, something you should ask when interviewing. It seems like the only people that get promoted are liars and brown nosers. There is a lack of work life balance. This is not the job you want if you want to be home by dinner time. Not the job you want if you want to spend time with your kids and family. Not the job you want if you want to be treated with respect. The core values are just written and not followed by top management, they encourage a toxic environment. I can spend another 30 minutes writing more negatives. The negatives sure outweigh the positives.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as you would like to be treated. Take a step back and really get to know your employees. Be genuine when you ask how everyone is going and actually fix problems versus being quick to fire people. Be real around your employees instead of going back to corporate talking about people. Please don't reply to this review, your HR replies are all the same lip service and no action!

    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".
