    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

    Awesome employees, working with the homeowners

    Cons

    Not many cons.

    Advice to Management

    It would not let me put my actual year I left, which was NOT 2014. It was 2010. Our management team was great. Were transitioning from Centex to Pulte, and they made it seamless. Great job!

    Pros

    No pros. Only health insurance +

    Cons

    Terrible work environment in south Florida central office. Way too much office politics, bullying and “ganging up” on new employees. Discrimination, calling you out and harassment is a big issue here. They will blame all their issues on newer employees and get management to agree. You will not be surprised if you walk into someone’s office or cubicle and they roll their eyes at you because they simply don’t like you. But most of all stay away from the construction department. Those employees have no humility, no remorse and do not care for human beings.

    Advice to Management

    None they don’t care. They shut their ears and eyes to newcomers. Only those with 3+ years of history of employment or who have members of their own family already working there are protected.

    Pros

    The company will take care of customer complaints, builds a good house and honors warranty requests.

    Cons

    None of the departments get along with one another, very high turnover in management which makes you think there is bad leadership at the top, no support, gossip, always afraid you’re going to get fired or yelled at, opinions don’t matter.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect, let people do the job they were hired to do. Don’t tell people they have to give you a 5 on the Gallup survey and pretend they are happy when you know they aren’t.
