    Positive Outlook

    I worked at NVR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast growth. Great place for any skilled framer to thrive. Grew from temp to hire to full time lead framer within 2 years. Acknowlegment and appraisals for great achievements for going above and beyond.

    Cons

    As housing designs changed and became more difficult and timely to build the production goals still grew. Really brought employees down when goals were rarely being met due to the virtually impossible rate and increasing difficulty.

    Advice to Management

    It cost more time and money to hire and train non skilled non experienced framers than it does having one less member of the team. Need to be more patient with who they bring in. Pay is high enough to entice quality framers.

    Pros

    Great pay. Fast growing company.

    Cons

    A company who doesn't treat their employees with respect. They act as if no one is smart enough to do their job or think on their own. They treat people harshly without batting an eye.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. Let them do their jobs without being so condescending. Management needs trained on how to treat their employees.
