    Pros

    Great culture where they seek to empower employees to grow within their positions and provide opportunities for them to branch out into new roles.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but not always provided 100% clear instructions or directions. Gives you the opportunity to bring new ideas to the table, but if you are looking for a rubber stamp role this isn't company for you.

    Pros

    Meritage Homes is a great company that really puts their employees first. There has never been a moment in my career here where I felt like my voice wasn't heard or that people weren't constantly pushing me forward. I am constantly getting the motivation from my peers as well as my managers to give feedback in order to make Meritage even better. I must also mention that the quality of the product we sell exceeds our competitors by a long shot and it is easy to see why!

    Cons

    I would love if they had potato chips on our side of the office... I have to walk over to regional to get them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building the business at the regional level. We have an amazing product that is recognized nationally, but we have a long way to go with making our brand a household name.

    I have been working at Meritage Homes (Less than a year)

    Pros

    High pace job that will keep you busy. You have to put in the work, but you will have an opportunity to learn huge amounts of construction: codes, expectation, and the overall process. You will also have a wonderful chance to see what it’s like to build a home and deal with a “nit-picky” customer. Lastly, Meritage does a wonderful job taking care of the employees with bonus opportunity and they have wonderful benefits.

    Cons

    At the beginning super long hours because of the fast pace for a entry position. Anywhere from 50-65 hours. Once you learn though it’s a great job.

    Pros

    Great People, and core values

    Cons

    I really do not have any right now at all. I came from being self employed, so it is a change but all good.

    Advice to Management

    Well as a sales counselor this is hard because we really do run our own "franchise" of sorts. Management pressure for sales is a little over the top, but that also comes from the "top", and being a publicly held company I understand it. Just sometimes a little much. We are 100% commission, so selling a home is a top priority of all of ours.
