    I have been working at MDC Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    MDC Holdings works hard to be welcoming and supportive. Management goes out of their way to check in, provide group social gatherings, and show their support and interest in their employees. I've had a great first few months and I see constant improvement by the company to provide a fun, yet professional atmosphere.

    Cons

    No complaints at this time

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

    Pros

    High profile company.
    Good motivational education.

    Cons

    Management says they want to increase customer satisfaction, however, construction contracts with inferior trades at lowest bids, producing shoddy finishes. Secondarily, management will not take advice of agents in the field. They do not want to hear any form of criticism or advice to improve systems or operations. Thirdly, sales contracting process is convoluted, and computer system is slow, and ineffective. A multi-million dollar corporation can and should do better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be a lender. Home American Mortgage is a failure.
    Appreciate you sales field employees. Better schedules, more work-life balance.

The company offers benefits that go beyond they standard package with a comprehensive wellness program and employee engagement events.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Pros

    Was able to learn a lot in a short amount of time. Had the chance to expand my skills as an IT professional.

    Cons

    There's no accountability in the IT organization so the high-performers carry the majority of the team. The leadership is poor and favors the older men.

    Advice to Management

    Understand what it means to truly lead an organization and hold individuals accountable.

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

    Pros

    Good people to work with if teamed up well.

    Cons

    Poor mgmt team. If teamed with wrong person, they'll stab you in the back. Expectations can be unreal, depending upon community you are placed in.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employee team. You were in their shoes before, try to remember that you had your struggles. Handle your employees yourself, don't reach over your head.

    Pros

    I loved the products and the managers I worked for there. They were clear on what was expected and left me to get it done unless I needed assistance. I appreciated that they would listen to my suggestions and let me do my job my way.

    Cons

    Changing territories and occasional personality conflicts can create stress.
