    Pros

    Staff and management welcome you with open arms. You feel like you are part of the family with the annoying big brother Joe. Management does care as well as most of the other New Home Consultants. They provide a training program for the new hires and provide 8 pay periods of a forgivable draw. Insurance and 401K bennys are great. They let you do events monthly to help bring in traffic.

    Cons

    Training program is too long
    No draw after the forgivable draw runs out
    You might be put in a slow community with a too many people
    Hard to get events scheduled in your community.
    If you don't have approx 3-6 months of money saved this might not be the career for you.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the slower communities.
    My feeling was that all of the focus were on the larger communities.
    Make the training program shorter. 4 weeks of training in the class and 4 weeks of training in the field. Pay your NHC trainers. They have a very important job.
    Have a regular draw after the forgivable draw runs out.

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

    Pros

    No pros at this company--no stars whatsoever.

    Cons

    The profile of the promoted people are this: Single, no kids, no family, no interests. This allows them to work like blind mules many hours a day and weekends.
    My immediate manager used foul language at sales meetings and brought up inappropriate topics unsuited to the workplace. He always boasted that he has been with the company for 17 years and he can do whatever he wants.

    Advice to Management

    You advertise on help wanted boards about your great family culture but it is quite the opposite.
