    I worked at NVR full-time

    Pros

    Great Training programs, but management is far too involved in this process. They want to see results immediately, while the goals of the training department are far different

    Cons

    Management is far too involved in the day-to-day operations of the sites. Overly critical and was very unhelpful. Bosses don't have PJMs backs

    Advice to Management

    Back off and allow PJMs to run their job sites as if it is their own independent company.

    I worked at NVR full-time

    Pros

    Great Medical and Dental benefits

    Cons

    Micromanaged, Builder Controls Sr Management. Sr Management doesn't know how to do the job but micromanages to get the work done and doesn't have your back. Stay away. Poor employee morale. Nobody stays long once they realize what is going on. Underwriting doesn't have a clue. Processors are overworked and not allowed OT. Mandatory training is in Virginia for 4 days and you have to go several times a year as a new hire.

    Advice to Management

    Sr Management should show appreciation to the staff everyday. Try to understand each job function and help out where needed. Don't dish out what you can't do yourself.
