    I have been working at Meritage Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have only been there for a little while but love the culture here. I love the product and I have been showered with kindness and thoughtfulness since starting. I can't believe this job exists. The pay is amazing and I am so lucky to have this job. I've worked for many non ethical and noncorporate companies and have had awful experiences. The workplace is beautiful.

    Cons

    Corporate is a big office and when u pass by others in the hall no one says hi or looks up. It's weird. I just smile more and say hi more. Petty but this is the only thing I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for hiring me. I love it here. :)

    Pros

    The Orlando team is one of the most cohesive I have had the pleasure to be apart of in my career. The collegial environment empowers individual decision making without the "gotcha" when your decisions were misguided. You are coached through the processes and not scolded or belittled. The company's attention to training is unrivaled in the industry.

    Cons

    It's a good problem to have but we work hard. If you are looking for a country club environment, this isn't the place for you. We work hard and play hard.

    Pros

    The Orlando Division has a great culture while providing a nice work/life balance. They truly care about you! The Division believes in celebrating the successes and does a great job of rewarding and recognizing hard work.

    Cons

    Just the normal year end stress.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. The communication of the plan/vision is great. We all know the goals we are working toward!

    I worked at Meritage Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    slightly above market average compensation

    Cons

    The culture has been deteriorating for several years to a point were it has become a toxic place to work. They over work employees, demand unreasonable expectations, and there is a total lack of "empowerment". The email load is unbearable/unmanageable at almost every level and in every department

    Advice to Management

    Try to actual embody your "Core Values" not just use them as buzz words in emails.

    Pros

    I would suppose the salaries depending on your position....that's all I can think of.

    Cons

    I'm not going to go into this long long response. It is just important for me to share to the person reading this that the good reviews are fake and were solicited by the company. Please trust me. I'm just trying to save you from the painful Meritage process which is taking the job, about six months in realizing that you made an absolutely horrible mistake...and then after that you will stay because you don't want it to look like you jump around on your resume, but during that time you will be absolutely MISERABLE and then you will just decide to take your chances and job search and have to explain a departure after 1-1.5 years of employment to a potential employer. During all of this...misery. You will most likely be miserable prior to your first 6 months. So...you have been warned and told the truth. The health insurance is a low cost monthly, but very high premiums. Good luck.

    Pros

    Large operation with a small company feel. Everyone knows everyone and is working towards a common goal.

    Cons

    Publicly traded company looking to hit its numbers, especially at the end of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of building a quality product just to satisfy a few numbers.
