    I have been working at Meritage Homes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management has an open-door policy. You have opportunities to grow and pursue your passions within the company. The business plan has become more streamlined since I've been here, which I think will help us in this overly-competitive time in the cycle. Meritage is a leader in green construction, which gives me a sense that we are making a difference.

    Cons

    Departments can become compartmentalized to a certain degree. I believe a higher degree of collaboration between departments could help remove some inefficiencies while delivering a better overall experience to our customers. Some legacy procedures should be revisited to see if they still provide value or serve the intended purpose as originally conceived.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to your employees on all levels and enacting meaningful changes to retain talent. The whole is only greater than the sum of its parts when those parts have time to build synergy. Continue pushing innovation downstream so that we not only remain competitive, but begin to capture higher market shares within the markets we compete. Buyers are no longer content with the status quo.

    I have been working at Meritage Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is an industry that allows me to make the type of money in commission that few other do

    Cons

    It is an industry that never lets up, your days off are not your own, you are not encouraged to take vacations, as a matter of fact there is no staffing for our vacations, our partners must work straight through our vacations with no breaks

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the direction you are, there are some very timely changes happening. Keep your progressive pursuit for a better way of doing business. Career opportunities do not seem to revolve around either performance or tenure, often some of our divisions best slots are given to recent hires or the division favorites
