    I worked at Pulte Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Never a dull moment. You learn how to schedule and manage multiple job sites. There is a lot of interaction with people.

    Cons

    Work overload. Management does not always listen to ideas as they tend to have their own agendas. That is typical though.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to new ideas

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

    Pros

    Systems, processes, timely payments to trades, quality of behind the wall construction, top tier land positions, focus on being consumer inspired - floor plans, community lay out, options available.

    Cons

    Rigid focus on overhead, not enough people to do the job and well. Seems like we run in a new direction monthly.

    Advice to Management

    Near impossible to hit on every critical priority, they often contradict each other.

    Pros

    Very rewarding helping customers build their dream home and establishing long term relationships with them.

    Cons

    This was the worst company I have ever worked for. The work life balance was horrible. Non collaborative teamwork. Used car lot mentality. Leadership favored certain employees. Used employees like robots, did not care about the employee or the family. Keep track of your commission, because Pulte won't. No career path.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and live by the integrity of Bill Pulte and hold up his legacy not tarnish it with your backstabbing and drama.

    I worked at Pulte Homes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They were flexible with hours and allowed me to moonlight

    Cons

    Poor job hiring talent within the department.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the failure of our department was becasue it did not hold employees accountable for the work that they were asked to do. If an employee was not pulling their weight the only thing that happened was less was asked of that person. Sometimes you just need to cut bait, which I suppose they did when they just dissolved the department.

    Pros

    Good employee base which makes it very pleasant to come to work

    Cons

    They have no direction strategically at a corporate level and are very haphazard in their employment practices. Don't get pulled in by the initial glitz and salary.

    Advice to Management

    Get focused on you people and get your leadership aligned instead of focusing on personal professional goals.

    Pros

    The group of people that I worked around were terrific. Everyone was always very helpful and it was a collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Some of the processes needed improvement.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership team is very open and I think they had a great group of people. They really try to involve the employees and the committee always puts on fun events for the employees to engage in. I do not have anything negative to say about management.
