      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.

      Selling the American Dream

      May 27, 2020 - New Home Sales Consultant in Hamilton, NJ
      Recommend

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Very rewarding financially and we're having a major impact on people's lives. You learn about construction, mortgage process, new sales techniques, product lines and learn how to become more strategic. I love it, this career has been a major blessing.

      Cons

      -Long hours -Not for everyone even some realtors that have been in the business jump into New Homes and go back to general real estate. -Set schedule(Which I prefer the that type of structure) -Work life balance can be challenging

      Terrible inept management, overworking, micromanaging, low pay, & empty promises.

      Pros

      None really, except free basic Costco snacks

      Cons

      Pretends to be a caring organization… Words and promises don’t match actions. Infected with favoritism. Low paying. No employee performance reviews. Employee feedback is ignored. High stress, work-life balance sucks. No compassion for an employee’s life outside of work. Cutthroat corporate vibe is cancerous. Micromanagement and unrealistic expectations. No real chance for creativity, cookie cutter assembly line type work. No sense of employee camaraderie or interaction… Everybody’s heads down working in silence, you feel like you’ll get in trouble if you talk or get up from your desk. It felt like jail working there. They put in shuffleboard and ping pong tables but nobody is ever playing either because if you’re not at your seat working, then you’re accused of not working, wasting time and punished. You’re pretty much just a number and less you’re in the upper echelon. Nobody that works there even owns a Lennar home—nobody can afford one on the low salaries they pay.

      Churn & burn...

      Aug 15, 2019 - New Home Consultant

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Has strong brand recognition nationally. Enjoyed my coworkers

      Cons

      Constant management turnover led to a bit of a circus in terms of direction. The overall culture internally from construction to sales to customer service was quite unhappy. Sales can naturally be a demanding job understandably, but my division did not value work/life balance. It was a churn and burn environment for employees. Lacked integrity for holding home values etc - come Sunday night (end of the week to report sales) if we needed a sale, it was not uncommon to still be at the office at 10pm getting calls from management asking who we could call to beg for a sale - i.e....to run a check over & complete through Docusign by midnight. Unreal & highly unprofessional. Prices would be slashed to get sales by end of Sunday and quite frankly led to appraisal issues, unhappy former clients who would naturally find out eventually and on & on..... ultimately, after a few years, I could not be proud of who I worked for and resigned. Have heard better circumstances from other divisions, but mine was a circus.
