    Pros

    The model homes are built very nice and decorated with the current styles in mind. Neighborhoods are in the best areas of the city.

    Cons

    They don’t care about prior sales experience and will keep you in training for several months and have you fill in when other Sales Consultants take time off. GSM’s did not have a good track record in Selling Homes and lack respect from the team.

    Advice to Management

    Train based on prior experience and promote based on talent.

    Pros

    pay is ok but is hourly
    great senior Field Mangers willing to help
    large company located in many states
    better training than most builders
    Manage your work without manger over the shoulders most of the time

    Cons

    Slow career progression
    hourly pay
    pay increases are very little to none
    Explosive unprofessional manager
    management cause at least 50% field manger turn over yearly

    Advice to Management

    remove toxic leadership to keep good field managers long term
    pay needs to increase at a much higher rate to stay competitive with other
    builders
    long hours and FMs carry too many homes. No work/life balance. Work stress comes home daily
    Hire better trades. Your FMs cant make in incapable trade do their job

    I worked at Pulte Homes full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits, but the price of worker there is too high. This was by far the worst builder for whom I worked.

    Cons

    This company has a terrible back stabbing culture. I worked in sales and management would fire sales people with large backlogs. People tip toed around poor managers and if you expressed an original idea you were let go.

    Advice to Management

    They’re hopeless and wouldn’t listen anyway.
