    Pros

    They have great benefits and almost everyone does whatever it takes to meet/exceed our company goals.

    Cons

    There is no downside to working at Lennar as a company... some of the people you have to work amongst lower your morale at times.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who are hungry to learn and want to work hard, people who want a career not just a job.

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

    Pros

    Great health benefits, however 401k vesting is deceiving.

    Cons

    Upper management oversold and under delivered on promises. Took advantage of their corporate policies to limit compensation and provide Associate discount on purchasing a home. Pressure to deliver closed homes overrules business ethics and happiness of employees. Business model is designed to burn employee out in 2 to 3 years, making it easier to hire a new employee than keep current staff happy.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror. Remember the people and families you affect.

    Pros

    They will provide you with the equipment you need to do your job - a laptop and sometimes a cell phone.

    Cons

    Upper management is incompetent, divisive, purposefully keeps employees in a state of paranoia, and constantly promises executives things that they know cannot be delivered. They expect employees to never make a mistake, to seek approval for everything down to getting permission to send an email to certain people, and have no tolerance for educated opinions if those opinions differ from their own. There is so much red tape, it takes months and months to complete very simple projects. The teams fight against each other and blame everything on other teams - no accountability, and upper management refuses to acknowledge the abusive nature of the environment. Contractors outnumber actual associates and are fired on whims for reasons that typically don't add up. This is not an environment for any self-respecting IT professional.

    Advice to Management

    The CIO doesn't even acknowledge her employees when they walk past her, she looks to the floor and doesn't say hello or even nod. If that isn't a sign of corporate dysfunction, I don't know what is. Help your employees succeed, don't set everyone up to fail and then blame it on them.

    I had no negative remarks for the local division in Las Vegas or corporately. Company looks after its employees and genuinely cares about the quality of their product,.

    The management team does a great job of keeping the team informed of all aspects of the business, encourages feedback from all associates

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

    Pros

    The Division President was nice.

    Cons

    I got poached by a recruiter. I came from a company that had a great culture, so a traditional one was a shock. Turns out, I knew the person I replaced. Small world and was not treated fairly after that was discovered. I came from a finance background and upon doing accounting work was told "I don't care whether you went to school for accounting or finance, I don't feel the need to train you on something you went to school for." I should have not ignored the tell tale signs with the interview and onboarding process. If you have a choice, I would walk away from this opportunity,
    as I did. Someone else will match the pay with a better culture.

    Pros

    Great Culture. Sure the division is focused on profits as is any public company, but at the same time is focused on the customer experience. They always do the right thing for the customer and the employees.

    Cons

    Very much a spec builder. This could also be a pro and for the most part is, but since we don't delineate from how we build it turns off a small part of the market. This is more than made up for in consistent delivery of quality product and less hiccups during the build process.

    Advice to Management

    My only real advice is to give the New Home Consultants more involvement in the creative of a community, since they interact the most with potential home buyers.
