    Pros

    Self Management capability, management training, growth opportunities at mid-level management.

    Cons

    Executive leadership does not have vision for real change, local managers think they know more than marketing studies and customers feedback actually provided, executive level management positions impossible to get into unless you know someone and most qualified individuals typically are not considered.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more closer to mid-level managers for improvement opportunities

    Pros

    As a sales consultant, you decide how much you make. No cap on commissions.

    Cons

    Never get a weekend off...

    Advice to Management

    Keep the customers in focus...not the shareholders. Happy Customers will result in increased sales, referrals and margins; and that in itself will ultimately make your shareholders happy. Give your salespeople some weekends off to spend time with their families.

    Pros

    Uses clear definable goals for monitoring and tracking employee progress. Competitive salary and benefits packages. 401k matching to 4% of 5%.
    Most employees here are very nice employees just trying to earn a living and work hard.

    Cons

    Clear definable goals process is an illusion. They are only measurable to whatever standard your manager later decides he/she wants to measure them to. I've never been counselled or written up for anything and suddenly I was terminated at the end of the week and given no explanation. This company burns through money on anything and everything except enriching the lives of their employees. Double standards apply for team leads and above especially on PTO / vacation tracking. If you aren't careful you will run out of PTO without realizing it and at the end of the year, management and team leads still have plenty of time left although they were rarely there. GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING AND TRUST NOTHING VERBAL! Discretely record every conversation you have in meetings for CYA purposes, fortunately I did!
    Health benefits are through BCBS of Michigan, regardless of which state you actually work in. This tends to cause higher premiums and less coverage for medications and potential providers.

    Advice to Management

    LEARN ETHICS!!!

    Pros

    Can have total control of your job and sink or swim. Helps if you have some construction experience. Code knowledge helps too.

    Cons

    Some divisions quality control expectations are not consistant. There are long hours needed to provide a quality home. Sub quality can be horrendous.

    Pros

    Freedom of schedule while at the job site. fun working environment and good benefits too. ability to learn a ton about the building process.

    Cons

    the downside is the market itself. When i started in Denver, they were building 35 home a month. and when i left 2 years later, they were building 5 homes a month. the crazy market swings requires them the hire and fire quickly. loved the job until they laid off 1/2 of my co-workers

    Advice to Management

    good luck with the market swings!
