    I worked at Richmond American Homes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good Training and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Horrible, they are the worst paying new home builder in the industry! Commissions were just slashed because the BOD and CEO could care less about their employees, it all about money and their stock price. Their software you use is extremely outdated, again they don't want to spend any money to improve things for their employees. They just greatly reduced commissions paid to realtors. No work-life balance at all. Managers favor employees. They routinely uproot employees from their communities and move them around. Many of the sales associate are looking for new jobs. Nothing good to say at all!
