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

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits.

    Most of my colleagues were wonderful people.

    Lennar is very effective at building houses efficiently.

    Cons

    Management culture of disparagement and bullying. Only nasty people get promoted. Very high turnover due to toxic work environment.

    Management does not care about employees' futures. Employees discouraged from self-advancement, like learning new skills. No constructive feedback given.

    Hard to use vacation. Management paid me a visit on site to intimidate me after I took two sick days. When I was finally able to take a week-long vacation, my supervisor blew up my phone all week with disparaging texts and voicemails, and tried to intimidate me when I returned. Nobody deserves to be treated like that.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employees! Management promises a salary review after 6 months to new hires. I am aware of several employees including myself that were there over a year and did not receive a review. No wonder turnover is so high!!

    Pros

    Good benefits, they aren't afraid to build you inventory homes

    Cons

    If you aren't one of the chosen people your income will be a fraction of what theirs is. In this business it truly is location, location, location....get a good one and you'll make the income of a physician, get a bad one and you'll make the income of a teacher (but you'll have to give up your weekends, work nights and no vaca to speak of). Alot of turn over, alot of waiting for the next community to start because development is so slowwwww.

    Advice to Management

    Are your A people A people because they always get the A communities, or are they just that good? I think the former. Just once take one of them and put them in a D community and see if they can turn it around (without huge incentives that is). Yet take a C grade agent and plop them into an A community and all of a sudden they too are superstars!! Funny how that works.....

    I worked at Lennar full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive Pay & Benefits. Strong market position. Some truly awesome people work there.

    Cons

    Disruptive, debilitating and toxic management behavior. There is a lack of integrity and respect in the workplace, stemming from leadership. No respect for employees, family life or time off. Vacation can be denied based on subjective measures. High pressure environment with no appreciation. You will not be able to use your vacation days and you will work holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Management through fear and threatening jobs is not going to help maintain top talent. Insecure leadership hurts the whole organization.
