    Give better raises when performance reviews warrant it.

    Pros

    Good team environment, great management at the divisional level. Really easy to work with for vacation on the production side.

    Cons

    Sub contractors are bitter and only want to get the job done as quickly as possible. It's hard to get them back to fix things as well. Not enough time to build houses.

    I have been working at Ryan Homes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It has been so long since there have been any, I am at a loss. Some of the employees are the best people you would ever meet. They deserve better, much, much better.

    Cons

    The drama and infighting within management, and field personnel is ridiculous. The Northern Virginia area is crumbling under mis-management, hidden agendas and compulsive lying to all their employees. They take employees, pretend their on the "fast track", and load on excessive work with absolutely no intention of promoting them. There is absolutely no diversity, and it shows.

    Advice to Management

    None. They will never listen anyways.

    Pros

    Flexible hours depending on your manager, learning opportunities, no overtime for interns ever

    Cons

    depending on your manager, you may start early in the am

    Pros

    Great opportunity to make good money! Must work 3 weekends a month but the hours are pretty good...30-35 hours/week. Everyone is really friendly and always there to help. Management is aware of the value of work/life balance. When you are off work, you are off. They do not bother you. Awesome resources and training! The sales team is competitive but in a good way...not cut-throat at all. Management is very responsive and quick to help if you are struggling in any way.

    Cons

    You have set goals that you must make or you get put on an action plan and if you don't improve, you will be let go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and pay attention to your employees. As long as you have their back, they will be appreciative.

    Pros

    Solid company, amazing work life balance, great company culture and long term stability. Managers want you to succeed. Fun work environment. You get to make your own schedule. It's fun and the money is great!

    Cons

    100% commission seems scary initially but the company sets you up for success! Weekends are required (you get days off during the week) but the work week is less than 40 hours and the hours are amazing. Way better than a 9-6 Monday through Friday.

    Pros

    If you are looking for high pressure sales environment that gives you opportunities to work late with opposite sex coworkers, this is it!

    Cons

    The company turns their head to this and allows homes to be broken constantly. Not a family friendly company and company vision/mission is not aligned with how the business is run.

    Advice to Management

    Review your codes of conduct and business relationship clauses. Involve families and the ones at home are sacrificing many things to support the employee of the company.
