    Pros

    They do not micromanage, flexible work hours and support staff is great!

    Cons

    Lack of direction and 1-on-1 interaction between the "doers" and the decision makers. Local and corporate leadership seem to forget about the worker-bees who are making their job easier and more efficient. High turnover in local office.

    Advice to Management

    To local management: Engage, listen and promote (reward) to your support staff. They are your "lifeline" and make you and sales look GOOD!

    Pros

    They have a good IT department.

    Cons

    Micro Manage everyone. Not enough staff to cover the workload. High expectations on delivery, while pushing employees beyond their limits. No work/life balance, very stressful environment with no upside to offset that. Sweat shop mentality by management. Don't trust anyone working for them, and treat all their employees with skepticism and doubt.

    Advice to Management

    Bob Schottenstein preaches the value of good people and employee retention. He's known for saying 'You win with people'.. So why is the Charlotte, NC office a revolving door of employees? Perhaps they treat their people well in other markets, but no one at corporate seems concerned about what's happening locally. A lot of unprofessional behavior by local management, but corporate seems to have empowered and enabled this approach despite preaching the opposite. Talk a good game when trying to entice you to work there, but it's just empty talk. I became much happier after I left. it's a shame because they had some good people just poor leadership.

    I worked at M/I Homes full-time

    Pros

    Honest upper management; simple, consolidated software systems; smaller public company that feels less bureaucratic than other national homebuilders.

    Cons

    Lack of common processes across the various divisions; low operational profit compared to other public builders leads to constant budget scrutiny and low chances for compensation increases. Little opportunity for advancement at other divisions because divisions work in silos and do not share information.

    Advice to Management

    Company is overly decentralized and needs common processes to help it compete with larger national builders. Low profit divisions bring down company morale.
