    Pros

    Direct path to advance that is clear and attainable for those that work hard. This is a career that can provide a good living. I’ve had months were my bonus was over 10k, and that’s on top of a 5k salary. In a good neighborhood bonus typically averages 2-3k for a phase I.

    Cons

    It’s necessary to work half a day most Saturdays when you start. Once you become efficient at the job, you can typically get everything done during the week. There’s a lot of stress, especially at the beginning because you might not know what your doing. The first year you’ll work long hours. Once you get the system down, it becomes easier and much less stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Install French drains and build it into the price. It’ll pay for itself.

    Perry Homes is a very professionally run company. Perry Homes continues to grow and there is opportunity for anyone that is willing to work hard. The management is great to work with. Perry Homes has been around for 50+ years and continues to have a stellar reputation in the home building industry. Perry Homes offers great work/life balance and flexible hours. Perry Homes is very involved in the Houston community and there is a lot of opportunity for employees to volunteer.

    Pros

    Company offers growth and stability. This is a goal oriented company with a great reputation.

    Cons

    Some systems and processes are outdated, however, management is open to new ideas and change. It is only going to get better as time goes on and it's already a great place to work. I could only imagine how it will be in years to come. I am excited to see what is in store for the future at Perry Homes.

    It's a stable company
    Not a lot favoritism in my opinion. Everyone has the same opportunities.

    Cons

    Outdated Systems
    Outdated Culture
    Lack of formal training
    Lack of communication between management and employees
    Lower management egos are out of control!

    Take a trip to some of the more progressive companies in Houston, or even Austin and take notes.

    I have been working at Perry Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Top commission. Company has great reputation.

    Cons

    Long hours (7:00 PM close). No holidays. Your "off days" are generally spent working. Zero work/life balance. On call 24/7. No reimbursement for travel to and from required meetings. Benefits are severely lacking, but at least it's something. Sales staff feel expendable, undervalued.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a break! Holidays like 4th of July, etc. should be spent with the ones you love. What's high income worth if you never see your family? Better benefits to include FSA type products would mean a lot.

    Pros

    Advancement within the company for employees that provide results and put training to use.

    Cons

    There are Cons at all places of employment, if people focus on the Cons they will not provide results and will not be successful no matter where they are employed.

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

    Pros

    Great entry level job and learning experience. Money was fantastic. Benefits were average.

    Cons

    Zero quality of life. You work 10 hour days and you get 1 Saturday off a month. You have no input to middle or upper management. I commuted 1 hour each way to work when they had a subdivision literally seven minutes from my home, with the exact homes in each subdivision. Perry would not transfer anyone with regard to commute times which added 22 hours a week to the 55-60 hour work load. The employee turnover is incredible.

    Advice to Management

    No need to advise management because they have been doing business for 50 years and have been successful. They aren't changing.
