    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Value of the employees, and training we have access to. The bonuses, the random money that gets put in your 401K, the yearly sales contests with incredible trips to win. Great, caring co-workers. Overall, a very organized company.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure from upper management, at times, during the slow months.

    Advice to Management

    -Try to remember that the summer lull happens EVERY year. =)
    -Support for Project Managers so they don't have to work themselves to death.

    Pros

    Smart Managers that dress sharp

    Cons

    The managers are smart at making all the low level employees do all the work. They take off at Noon to go do "comps." They expect you to work 14 hour days. If you don't they will put you on a 100 day improvement plan. This is a common occurrence. I know about 8 people this happened to. They will put you on a 100 day plan with 20 task to complete to keep your job. The problem is that they have already made up their minds-You are a gonner, Whether you complete one item or all 20 on the list, they will get rid of you. Hint: If they put on the 100 day plan, put your resume out there and don't do a dam thing. Actually, just show up for work about one hour a day and login and logout so they can't say you abandoned your job. HR will make them wait 100 days before letting you go. No matter what, you are going to get let go, and they are just trying to make you bleed some more even though they got their minds made up.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are miserable. Do some life work balance. Get rid of the corruption. The current ethics policy seems to be if its wrong, do it and if its right, don't do it.

    Can be very busy, but that is cyclical and to be expected.

    Pros

    The disgusting food they feed you at the midnight project review meetings.

    Cons

    Toll has been typing positive reviews. The HR department is keeping busy trying to lift their low scores. Don't believe the positive reviews. This place is awful. You will work from 7am to 9pm. As an APM, you are treated awful, worked to death while the Division and Regional Presidents golf. You won't move up. There is too much nepotism. The training program is a joke. There is none. Stock has fallen 30% this year! Look it up.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the nepotism.
