    Construction Manager

    Feb 16, 2016 - Construction Manager in Raleigh, NC

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to build due to rapid expansion in the area. Company invests in land planning several years ahead. Company has money and high profits, supplies nice laptops and model homes have very nice offices. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Too large, over 100 employees in Raleigh due to merger with Ryland Homes. Quality is bad because only the cheapest trades in the area are hired, and replaced with cheaper anytime the purchasing department finds a lower price. Builders are forced to use the worst trades possible and construction is not allowed to fire trades. Construction department is not allowed to manage or interfere with purchasing department, it's an independent island of profit and the bad trades create an impossible situation for the construction department. High stress. Builder is rated and bonused on surveys and buyers are very upset about the bad trades and rough work everywhere. More stress. Company office employees consider themselves superior to field managers and ignore their needs and requests. Most builders do all their own warranty requests so plan on some late night work and being very close to your clients for the first year.

    Pros

    Strong, supportive culture which leads to great teamwork. Standard Pacific's focus has been on the move up buyer and building a better quality home. It shows in overall customer satisfaction. Merger with Ryland homes will create more diversity.

    Cons

    Like any sales position, there is the ongoing pressure of meeting company sales goals. Management works with you though to help meet those goals.

    Disappointed

    Pros

    They build a good home worth buying and have good retention of employees in the construction team. There is obviously better employee support than in sales.

    Cons

    High turn over in sales and design for a reason. No respect for any sort of work life balance and with the merger, there comes new accountability leaving a division that is looking for people to blame. Be prepared to watch your back or be under the bus. Sales assistants are terribly underpaid for the amount of work required. The company employs staffing agencies too heavily because they can't keep sales offices staffed. This affects sales reps. which are the first in line to get blamed for issues that aren't under their control.

    Pros

    Upper management really cares about lower ranking employees and really encourages growth and educational opportunities. Great benefits packages with 2 weeks starting vacation and a chance to earn more days as you grow with the company. Lot of holidays throughout the year. Always celebrate each employee's birthday. Very fun environment to work in. Lot of social activities provided by the company to foster community between all departments.

    Cons

    There are no cons at StanPac
