    Pros

    Nurturing training program and supportive staff. Competitive floor in sales makes it difficult to adjust, however it motivates and sharpens sales force drive. No micromanaging! Empowerment and trustworthiness as long as proven commitment and reliability. Opportunities to learn, advance and recognize talent. CEO is amazing, approachable, and cares about employees wellness and development! It’s a family that take pride into their product and company culture!

    Cons

    Working week-ends and long hours, competitive floor in sales and sales force system intensive maintenance.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to nurture talent and keep the open door policy! Give Sales Agents their b-day off or a comp day for working their B-day!

    I have been working at Pulte Homes full-time

    Pros

    If you work more than 8 hours Pulte will pay over time.

    Cons

    Lack of professional leadership in a real constrution environment. Since Pulte has no one in upper management with real hands on Construction experience there motive of operation is to throw staggering amount of money to correct any issue they are confronted with and change the completion date. Pulte waiste so much money. Its a matter of time before the leadership out of the Atlanta office wakes up. They make over 30% on most house sales due to the real estate market. Once the percentage tighten up and Pulte Continues to throw money away the big boys from Atlanta will clean house. It is a matter of time
