    Great Company to work and benefits are great

    Upper management not really hands on with you in field.
    It goes down chain of command and not much interaction with field

    Pay more for talent

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

    Pros

    If you have the right type of position, the benefits are wonderful. Vacation houses throughout the country for you to rent for the week, stock options, contests for big payoff (company trips), etc. Builds a great product and most of the staff honestly cares about their buyers, and touches base with them frequently after closing.

    Cons

    If you are not in one of those nice positions I've referred to, you aren't recognized. It's unfortunate when you consider most of those people have had careers in sales, management, education, and more, but because they are lower in the chain than sales managers and corporate level workers, no one values their opinions. This company is painfully slow to promote. There seems to be a disconnect between corporate level not in the field, and those of us who work every weekend and most holidays. They pretend to know what that is like, what is current in design, etc but in reality, they've lost touch just a little. The PAPERWORK and the PROCESS involved in writing a contract is NUTS! Also, even just one FULL weekend off per QUARTER would be a blessing. We have many black-out periods for vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overwork your employees. Don't expect us to churn out contract after contract when the process is way too long for that. Practice what you preach in regards to telling us you believe in a healthy work/family balance. Don't expect us to work from home on our days off. Don't be so slow to promote. Your people are capable, they are trained, but then you don't seem to have faith in their abilities, so you don't promote within.

    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Leads are provided, most are highly qualified. Base salary for a loan officer is very good. Benefits are EXCELLENT! Health insurance is better than most, 401K match, employee stock purchase, employee vacation homes for use, significant improvement in management over the last 3 years, turn over is much lower than a few years ago. Great culture! If you are intelligent and self-motivated to learn and perform, you will do well here. If you plan on skating by on the base salary, you will not last.

    Cons

    Technologically challenged but recognizes it and is overhauling the entire company software but it will not be in place until 2020.

    Pros

    Large marketing department that gives their sales team all the tools needed to drive quality traffic. The senior management team meets with the sales team 3 times a year to review the community pros and cons, and does what it can to help boost sales! If a community is doing well they do what can be done to continue a successful path with in sales for communities who are doing well!

    Cons

    Sales reports to Project Managers who typically were hired for their financial background and NO sales experience versus a General Sales Manager, or. vP of Sales with experience who can help give the sales team a different perspective when working through the sale process to gain the sale!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales trainers and senior sales people with experience and don't denigrate them in front of others!

    Pros

    The company has amazing benefits and a relaxed atmosphere in the office. They are constantly growing at a successful rate which makes it exciting to be a part of.

    Cons

    You're a little fish in a big pond. Definitely show signs of large corporate greed. Are constantly losing the younger generation because of limited growth opportunities and lower than average pay.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the younger generation to grow into the company rather than those who have been here 10+ years
