    Pros

    You’re running your own business essentially with your own model home. There is no micro managing as long as you’re hitting your sales goals and doing all the marketing aspects required.

    Cons

    Can be challenging with juggling 30 families’ forever homes at a time.

    Pros

    I work outside for one boss, we work as a team to accomplish tangible goals every day. The pay is great The people are knowledgeable and willing to help you at every step

    Cons

    Training is thorough and difficult There is some disconnect between the office and field about how much time we have in the field. You are always busy 401k match is very low, but is compensated by an Employee stock ownership program

    Not what it cracked up to be

    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent pay, great company benefits, good employee incentives

    Cons

    The company seemed in a downward spiral due to poor management. People were quitting left and right, and it was because they did not value their workers. If you didn't fit into the company "culture," you were a target to be fired, even if you were going above and beyond the call of duty in your role. Management was classic for shoving their own job role responsibilities to other parties and taking credit for work they did not do. Racism was a common issue, but not addressed or acknowledged. Be ready to take work home after hours and NOT receive compensation for additional hours worked. Management turned down requests for time and a half pay, despite constantly doling out additional work from other job roles that you were never trained to do. Training was also a joke. Be ready to be thrown into a job role with minimal training and not much room for mistakes.

    Some Pro's and Con's depending on what you are looking for

    Pros

    Good people with a clean and friendly environment.

    Cons

    If you are looking to grow in a company, I would not suggest Ryan Homes. First, they do not give raises throughout the year. It was frustrating knowing that no matter what you achieve, your pay is not increasing. Oh, and if you work in the back office, expect to have a lot more to do than everyone else, and get paid the least. Second, they say you have the opportunity to grow, but it's not there. I was really looking forward to a career at Ryan Homes, but it was just not for me. I think this is a great company for someone who is happy with going in 8-5, doing the same thing everyday, and having no change of pace or a good salary increase.

    Pros

    Being a part of an amazing team, from the reps, to the construction, to the office and everything in between. My team is the best I've been a part of! oh and the pay is pretty awesome as well!!

    Cons

    Some might say working on the weekends? I don't think so though because the hours aren't long at all, so really it's not a con.. The amount you make compared to the hours you work, more than make up the time.
