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

    Pros

    There really aren't any pros unless you want to work for a self centered type of person.

    Cons

    Training is awful; learn on your own.

    Advice to Management

    If you recognize the signs in your manager, it can be both distressing and difficult working for them. Many researchers have given a very simple solution, and that is to pack up and leave them. Hence, an increasing number of resignations every year may be due to having worked with an ego-driven manager.

    The employee who leaves due to working for such a manager will often be reluctant to report why they left for fear of retribution. So they quietly leave, leaving the ego-driven manager to find another employee to put the blame on. Very egotistic and will lose more employees than can ever be expected by exhibiting egotistic anomalies which can lead to disaster, pay your call center folks more, they deserve it for his lack of leadership, we had one team meeting and the supervisor was only there for 5 minutes? What??? And then attacks with no diplomacy and is self driven even to say horrible things like 'it's us against them' meaning NVR against the customers, who says that? Let's work on the training for the newcomers and work on retention. Someone please!

    I have been working at NVR full-time

    Pros

    The individuals I interviewed with were all very successful and I am excited to learn from them. The staffing agency that found me for this role did a great job also. I am looking forward to my experience working with NVR Mortgage.

    Cons

    The vacation time is minimal at first, all though I am still very excited about the potential with them.

    Advice to Management

    I am looking forward to growing with your company and also to the managers that will be helping me.

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

    Pros

    Learned a lot! They are very helpful with teaching everything you need to know about the position. Good stock options.

    Cons

    Work life balance is terrible. Management is very negative and quick to blame others for everything. No overtime but expect you to stay late and work through lunch to get things done.

    I worked at NVR full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay. They compensate their employees well.

    Cons

    Everything else. Upper management does not care about anything except "share holder value", which is another way of saying compensation for C-level execs, mainly CEO and Chairman.

    Advice to Management

    You have no clue and would not listen anyway. Anyone that leaves the organization regains their smile and dignity. I have never seen such a happy group of ex-employees.

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Fast paced environment
    Great feeling of accomplishment

    Cons

    Work load can be overwhelming at times
    Only 2 weeks of vacation for the first 5 years

    Advice to Management

    Everyone is rated on the metrics but not everyone is eligible for bonuses. Give the opportunity to the inside staff to earn extra pay once in a while.

    Pros

    Great development. Management is hands off.

    Two weeks of vacation is obscene.
