    Current Employee - Framer 

    I have been working at NVR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is really competitive, and moving up isn't too difficult. The job will keep, or put, you in shape. IcyHot will be your new best friend. Management is great and really looks out for its employees, and the benefits are a breath of fresh air compared to most businesses in the field.

    Cons

    Long hours (10hrs a day on nights) The work is really tough, but rewarding.

    I have been working at NVR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    benefits, pto, work-life balance, hours, pay, environment

    Cons

    Training- sups only teach you more when theyre ready to teach you more even when you ask, they dont train you on everything so certain errors or issues come up that force you to depend on your supervisor (who are usually pretty responsive and very nice). Raises seem to be less than the national average of cost of living, if they are performance based I was not told that.

    I have been working at NVR full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong company. Stock is performing well. My direct manager is wonderful. Very fair, patient, knowledgeable and accessible when needed. Hands on and will go to bat for the entire team. The only reason I am there is because of my direct mgr. Corporate is in Pittsburgh and those of us in other locations can work remotely which is a huge plus.

    Cons

    The level above my mgr is heartless. They manage by FEAR, constant ridicule, shaming, micromanagement and any other adjective that relates to demeaning. They do not listen to the concerns of the staff or our mgrs and continue to add more and more to our plates. We have no voice. Actually no one has a voice but upper mgmt. Just do what you're told and don't try to speak up. All they want is volume and more volume. Every direct team mgr is miserable and you can tell at times they are literally beat up and beat down but they put up a good front and are good buffers for us. I fell very sorry for them and if I had to go through that I would have quit a long time ago. I'm surprised they are still there. If my mgr ever leaves I know over half of our staff would also be out of the door. Our mgr is the only reason any of us are really sticking around. This environment is stressful and the daily production goal is not attainable with all they expect us to do. Sales and processing is very inexperienced and that makes our job more complicated than it has to be. You can do 10 things right and 2 things wrong and now all of a sudden you are a horrible employee overall. Sales is rarely held accountable for anything and we just have to deal with whatever we receive from them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at NVR full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I can’t think of one pro of working there. There is a systematic racism and unfair treatment problem that they have their and it is reinforced by the White and Asian leadership at the Fairfax VA office. They are fake individuals that set out to make my experience there very difficult and an awful place to be.

    Cons

    Working at NVR was not a good environment to work in. They did not have a diverse management team at all, did not know how to lead or mentor or include a diverse workforce and specifically for the few black employees that worked in the Fairfax VA office. There were so many cons to mention. You don’t get the sense that they want to work with a diverse group of people. They promote the same people and someone said it best, “the culture takes me back to high school and a popularity contest”
