  3. "Management"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Lennar

    Pros

    Some good people with good experience, competitive salary (in exchange for your soul)

    Cons

    Bizarre culture of reciting Red Hen poem by memory, chanting their fight song, wearing Disneyland style name tags and various other cult like traditions to prove alliance to the company. Upper executives focused solely on bottom line (bonus) at everyone’s expense if necessary. Not a good place for work-life balance. Terrible medical benefits, you really need to understand them and factor that into your salary,... especially if you have a family. Executives believe they’re the smartest guys in the room, and are sure to let you know it. Meanwhile the only true measure, stock price, underperforms all of their competitors. But they don’t connect the dots. They offer no competitive advantage despite their beliefs. Everything they do can be easily copied & in many cases competition has not only copied but improved their product. Executive roles are dominated by Caucasian male accountants. While it’s true you don’t need to be a pilot to run an airline, Homebuilding is such a complex and relationship oriented business, when run by a group with no diversity in background it’s easy to see why their stock underperforms competition and why they care less about the soft side of business and more about counting the beans. You really need to drink the coolaid to survive. Some have and have done well but you need to be of a certain breed.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should stop focusing on short term bonus & focus on long term strength. That’s difficult though since the industry is cyclical and many builders came to the verge of collapse last recession. The new motto for Lennar executives is clearly make as much as you can while you can and screw everyone else.

    I worked at Lennar

    Pros

    Strong leadership Company loyalty Ability to assist with projects outside of your role

    Cons

    Old boys club Little training Some managers are unqualified for their positions and solely retain them because of their friendships with executives. Lacks diversity in age, gender, and ethnicity.

    Advice to Management

    Look more closely into how managers treat their subordinates.

    Majority of associates are first class. Work/life ration pretty good considering it is a construction company.

    Company protocols are significant and dynamic. Lots of yellow tape, sometimes hard to do your job.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Lennar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only pros is me being able to write this review to keep you away from working here.

    Cons

    Constant meetings, unrealistic deadlines, poor management

    Advice to Management

    Stop making your workers do unethical things, stop pushing homes on people that won’t be ready, stop having so many meetings that you don’t lead your people. Start leading your people, protect them from unethical practices and irate customers who lie about things. This company is a joke, all they care about is the bottom line and DO NOT SEE A PERSON rather a number, they are slave traders that will beat you down for... little to no money. They do not pay out bonuses as they will argue with you about them, they start you off below the benchmark and expect you to do things out of your pay rate, they belittle you and make you feel inferior, they are racist and bombard you with an unrealistic work load, DO NOT WORK JERE

    Pros

    Good money in the sales department

    Cons

    Have to deceive buyers to meet quotas.

    Advice to Management
