    I worked at Lennar full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Internal training opportunities, abundance of new roles and responsibilities, good opportunity to brand yourself for other employers, entry-level growth opportunities, long-term employment.

    Cons

    Nepotism, wage suppression, tendency to add new responsibilities without adding compensation, overly contrived culture, standard operating procedure is an overwhelming job description for the majority contrasted with apparently low tangible deliverable volume for a select chosen few.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on allowing an organic culture to develop based on review of existing organization behavior, do what you say you will do for your associates, review safety practices and make them a priority, stop capitalizing on philanthropic involvement as a marketing opportunity.

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits better than average. Flexible with time off.

    Cons

    After considerable cool down period, Very "clicky" How successful you are is directly related to who you know and not so much what you know. Top tier of management probably not in tune with how inept the next layer really is (at least I hope that's the case) HR department reeks of corruption, could easily have filed a harassment/discrimination lawsuit but not my style.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at the people you have in key roles and don't be fooled by what is on the surface.
