    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. :)

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

    Pros

    I've been with the company for nearly three years and in that time, I've seen significant improvement in company culture, leadership and customer focus. Employees care about our company, co-workers and customers. It's a fast moving and performance oriented environment. Leadership cares about employee development and growth. We're growing and it's fun to grow with the company!

    Cons

    The fast pace here is not for everyone. As the company grows, we're experiencing the normal growth challenges you'd expect.

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

    Pros

    Great culture; Everyone helping one another; Seeing lots of sales growth recently; Excellent work/life balance; Competitive compensation package

    Cons

    I know nothing about the "fake reviews" to which others on this site are referring. I'm doing this on my own and I think other employees are too. Also, several of the negative reviews are from sales agents in 2017. We had a lot of turnover in our sales department in early 2017. We have since hired new management and many new agents and they are kicking butt right now....just had a record quarter!

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire more office staff now, to support expected growth in the near future.

    Pros

    One of the best career moves I have ever made was to join the Meritage Homes Team in Atlanta. Amazing Culture that shows tremendous support for their Sales Team. I was told "Homes Don't Sell Themselves We Need GREAT Salespeople" . How wonderful and refreshing to hear how Sr Management values the people who are the "face" of Meritage Homes.

    Cons

    You have to up your game! You will work Harder, You will work Smarter and the Rewards will follow. Be Ready to take your career to a new level.

    I have been working at Meritage Homes full-time

    Pros

    None, insurance benefits would be the best reason, The turner over within the DFW region is rampant! Between upper and middle management, construction, and sales, you’ll always be one of the new guys trying to figure out how to function in your job. If your in Sales, stay away. Due to the high turnover in construction, homes are poorly built , rarely finished even close to schedule, high cancellations, lack of warranty, it’s difficult getting off draw because of the long period of time it takes to build. This company’s sales contract says that the buyer must close on the home when “substantially complete”. This means there is a long list that continues to grow as the construction team keeps turnin* over. Just look how long the homes have been in the community compared to the competition. They are outsold by large numbers. Pricing changes every weds. This wipes out your current contacts

    Cons

    Everything is a con! Massive turnover, poor pay!This is for the 2017-2018 periods,

    Advice to Management

    Change the draw to salary a
    Or close the division down until you fix your problems.

    Pros

    The pay is all right.

    Cons

    Upper management completely disregards their management team. Planning is totally ignored and unrealistic demands get thrown around with little to no notice for reasons unknown.
    Management is aware, but scared for their own jobs, so they watch the employees get pushed around and can't do a thing.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up to your bosses. Otherwise, what's the point of you trying to manage?
