    Pros

    The culture here is great. Everyone is a team player and willing to do what is required to get the job done. People are treated with respect and fairness and management truly cares about helping every employee succeed. Promoting from within is something that has happened on a regular basis since I've been with the company. Great overall environment in a fun and challenging industry.

    Pros

    This company has an executive leadership team that is invested in the daily operations of the company that creates an incredible place to learn and grow. This company values it's employees and is centered around sales performance. The employees here are talented and love what they do. Many long friendships have been made.

    Cons

    We are a performance based organization so the work can be long but the reward can be great. We don't do a great job showing the outside world the special things we do to create a team oriented culture in our divisions and at our corporate office.

    Pros

    Richmond sets very high expectations for their Sales Associates. Turnover is common for new associates because many new employees expect high returns for little effort. It does not work that way. If you are willing to do the work, the payoff is great, in both financial gain and career growth. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the company. By far, the best new home builder to work for in the Salt Lake City metro area.

    Cons

    Non applicable. There are non to share.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Great culture and people to work with - lots of longevity of the team in my division. Really great support from the corporate team and your hard work is recognized! There is a lot of opportunity for growth and you are not micro managed.

    Pros

    Pros, where to begin...
    If you like getting chewed out by management on a regular basis, then look no further than Richmond American Homes. At Richmond American, they buy tracts of land that are nearly impossible to sell. They make this your problem. So, if you want a job that makes you question why you even bother anymore, this is the place to be!

    Another pro is, you get no sick days. That's right, when you are sick your options are to come into work, or use a vacation day. There was one time I was literally dying, planning my own funeral and everything, but I had to do it at work, because I wasn't going to use a vacation day on that. Fortunately, I survived and got the deposit on my funeral back.

    I'll give one more pro. They promote from within. Which is really awesome, but you have to be the golden child to get the promotion. If you are placed in a struggling community, you will be just a number to them. If you get placed in a good community, where you are, for all intents and purposes, an order taker. The sky is the limit.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is horrendous.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales agents when they tell you how their communities could sell better. You constantly remind us that we are the first line of people, consumers meet when they come here. You constantly remind us that we are the on-site expert. So actually listen to us, when we say, "doing x,y,and z will help the community out," Instead, you're very cheap. I encourage all employees to bring a crowbar to work with them, so they can pry open the billion dollar budget this company has but refuses to use.

    Also when you hire a sales manager, who receives such backlash from the sales team, where people literally curse this person out to this person's face, maybe it's time to do some restructuring? I don't know, it's not like I graduated magna cum laude from business school.

    Pros

    Good place to get experience.

    Cons

    The sales office can be very competitive and there is little management support to prevent unfair and deceitful sales practices from co-workers. Definitely an "in crowd" at this company. It feels like high school. It's definitely a churn and burn.

    Pros

    Great place to learn and grow in new home sales. Management is all about personal development and coaching you to be the very best version of you!

    Cons

    Nothing bad I can say here. I only wish I would have started sooner!
