    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Vacation houses are awesome to use. Benefits include discounted stock shares and health/life insurance. The amount of vacation days go up after you've been there for five years.

    Cons

    Trying to take a vacation or just simply a day off during "peak" periods is difficult. No work/home balance. Expect to work every weekend and only take vacations in the summer. Pay is not good. Other new home builders have better pay rates and bonuses. There is a big disconnect between upper management and sales people. The company seems to have no clue what is going on in the market and what trends are hot. They are very slow to make change and very cheap.

    Pros

    The people that work here are awesome. Most are involved and participate in team building type events and extra-curricular classes. There is a feeling of community and that is what is most enjoyable about working here.

    Cons

    The work itself, and the daily office life is stale. In this particular department, day-to-day work is ALWAYS the same. Rarely will you have a chance to work on anything other than in-house upkeep or production work.

     The pay is about $10k lower for the majority of positions than that of industry standards and as a result the turnover rate is incredibly high. Managements position on such a predicament is to let people leave rather than match the competitions' rates. Pay increases (without promotions) are capped at 3% unless special circumstances occur. There are many people who have been with the company for a while and will stay so promotion past lower titles is rare. The benefits are about industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Work on retaining the people you already have trained by paying them properly rather than let them leave and have to train new hires.

    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to run the project like its your own company with the project management, construction management, marketing, and sales teams. Also, incredible growth opportunities within the company and people are open to new ideas, constructive criticism, and making processes more efficient

    Cons

    Very little training. Either teach yourself or bother someone until they give you some help but the company doesnt invest any time in face to face training...the only training they've got is online via videos from corporate

    Advice to Management

    If you advertise the APM training program to new recruits, then actually have an APM training program. Also, if Project Managers are tasked with leading and training their teams, they should be taught how to do so before taking over projects, otherwise you get projects where people struggle to succeed in-spite of management, not because of

    Pros

    Team work. Casual office environment.

    Cons

    Red tape in order to get anything decided on. Decision depends on a small few.

    Advice to Management

    Pay to hire good people. We would all be happier and more productive with more staff.

    Pros

    Good corporate training structure, if you are assigned to a good sales manager or two then you will be fine. Otherwise you will be given enough rope to hang yourself due to inexperience.

    Cons

    Major downsizing due to real estate market, lack of long term opportunities. Construction is totally male-dominated and resistant to sales input and requests unless you have a buddy-buddy relationship with the PMs.

    Advice to Management

    Foster a better relationship between sales and construction.

    Pros

    The department that I work in is understanding of family first. This is very important for someone such as myself that has young, school aged children.

    Cons

    Management, management and management. Upper management needs to understand the effects of technology on the business they manage. This is 2008 and we do not use pencil and paper anymore. They need to start respecting our jobs more.

    Advice to Management

    Start respecting the people that keep the company running and keep up with new advances in technology in the field.

    Pros

    Good people, excellent training, good benefits, excellent brand

    Cons

    No work life balance, due to no weekends off other than summer program.. Other home builders have better programs to compensate for working many weekends a year. Pay is okay but not a lot of room for increase.

    Advice to Management

    One weekend off a month like other home builders. Would really make the job more enjoyable to have some sort of work life balance.

    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can definitely say that their benefits are better than other companies for sure. There are some perks for working there. We can get employee discounts for various things. They have flexible hours, which is a bonus.

    Cons

    Long hours and untrained HR staff when it comes to dealing with employee issues. Some staff are required to stay extra hours for the Monday night meetings which are unpaid.
