    I have been working at NVR full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. No overtime. A great place to start a career with a very competitive salary compare to other companies. Supportive Managers and no work drama.

    Cons

    Once a month salary instead of regular bi-weekly pay day. They only consider 6 Major Holidays in a year. And only 2 weeks of PTO for the first 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Consider to have Christmas bonus for employees and Birthday off. Other than that no complaints to the Management.

    Pros

    The knowledge of management and career opportunities. Captive audience for originators. Actually being hunted by a recruiter from a staffing firm in Buffalo, The Strauss Group.

    Cons

    Very fast-paced and sometimes stressful.

    I have been working at NVR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best managers and co workers in the industry. I've had a few years experience and I don't say that lightly.

    Cons

    The pay for the sales team is simply awful in comparison to most other large companies. They have it all analyzed to a bugs hind end. Yes we are all in this to make a profit that's true but this company has forgotten one of its very best assets, their sales people. I don't want to hear about how great the ESOP is because 90% of the sales team never stays around to benefit from it and NVR appears to have it planned out that way anyhow. They only benefit from sales people leaving. Such a shame because this company truly has the potential a being a really great if they could get this part together and work on some of the customer side of things as well.

    Advice to Management

    This is a profitable time, yes. We are all grateful for it, especially for those of us that have been through the market downturn. My advice would be that you should be more competitive in your sales persons pay and you will be able to retain better people. Stop letting the tail (bean counters!) wag the dog so much!

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

    Pros

    The people are very kind and friendly. The work environment itself is very warm and there is a true sense that people care about you.

    Cons

    The benefits aren't the best. You only get two weeks of PTO when you start and that doesn't change for about 5 years. The management doesn't have much flexibility in work environments either.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Your benefits need to be competitive. Learn to allow employees to have flexibility in working remotely.

    I have been working at NVR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for lucrative commission if you are lucky enough to be placed in the right community. Competitive benefit structure. Administrative staff holds the whole thing together on a shoe string with two key players.

    Cons

    Be careful, promises made before start are often misleading and fall short. If you are placed at a loser property or are not chosen as one of the favorites it is next to impossible to overcome this as the quotas are subjective and largely unfair.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more sales managers and treat them well so you can keep them. Sales staff is woefully unsupported. Stop treating people as disposable drones. Your disrespect is glaring.

    Pros

    Nice environment to work in. Management tries to keep employees happy as best they can

    Cons

    Benefits are below average. Problems are always blamed on "corporate" but I think it's more to do with managements lack of push back when necessary
