      An overall good company to get involved in the Construction industry in your early career.

      Pros

      Work with incredibly Experienced individuals in the construction industry Has a very non-rigid job structure meaning that your role on the site is what you make of it. Get to spend a lot of time out of the office working with contractors in the field. Ability to really jump right into learning and leading the site in your own way.

      Cons

      Can be burdened by a high amount of work to the amount of time you are compensated for. The Goal between creating a luxury product and efficiently building homes can become muddied and will be conflicting between upper management. Highly stressful environment without a clear path towards improvement and success.

      Just a resume builder

      Pros

      Good company benefits. The health insurance and 401k matching is a nice perk. Gained a lot of job experience, learning how to work as a team, and skills that can build my resume.

      Cons

      Toll Brothers is a company based on the bottom line. Honestly, who can blame them? But their way of saving money is by having one person playing multiple roles, for long periods of time, to the point of burnout or failure. The home sales division of the company is the true money-maker, but if you're in any other place in the company (Golf division) its easy to get left behind. There is very little room to grow unless you happen to be at the right place at the right time. The upper management level seems to be well compensated, but anyone below that level makes extremely low pay for the amount of work they're required to accomplish. The corporate level of management micro-manages all the way down to the smallest roles and enforces office-level rules on all employees no matter if they work in a cubicle 9-5 or in a country club pulling 12 hour days.

      Pros

      Different places, under different management probably better

      Cons

      If you are into upper management working asst managers weekends and overtime without pay, direct managers drinking large amounts of alcohol on company property at the construction trailers on the very subdivisions they are building full of kids, more drama than the show Glee and the Office together and multiple bosses not communicating with one another and out to get one another, work int he Colorado division. Oh, and then when all this is reported to corporate HR, you are transferred and it is swept under the rug, work here..... oh and if you are not proud of the work you put out, but beg customers for a good survey to get your bonus and throw the rest of the company under the bus, work in Colorado. I'm sure not every site is the same, i'm sure it is run very differently from place to place, but top of Colorado division is a joke. Oh yeah, i turned in pictures of people drinking and driving at the construction trailer to HR, and fridge full of beer, and a trash can full of empty beer boxes. If you have self respect, stay out of Colorado, and don't ever buy a home from this company here.

      Terrible Upper Management that has no idea how to run the Apartment Living division

      Pros

      Only a resume builder. Toll has a good name for being a top home builder, but still has a lot to learn in apartments.

      Cons

      No training whatsoever. Upper Management is only looking to cover up their mistakes, and put the blame on the site team. Company still has a lot to learn when it comes to building, and managing apartments. Processes are still not in place.

      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.

      Up's and Down's with Toll Brothers

      Pros

      For the most part, the homeowners, office staff and construction staff are good to work with.

      Cons

      Upper management doesn't have good people skills and can be much too demanding most of the time. * hours is not enough...10 hours is not enough...12 hours is not enough. Always want more than you can give. That's why many very good managers and other staff have left.

      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

      Well known builder, great for your resume, learning something new everyday, I happen to work with a fantastic sales team that I learn a lot from.

      Cons

      Serious disconnect between upper management and sales, priorities are completely unaligned with what they should be (stop the "team building partying" and the nonsense and focus on strategizing on how to build homes), no room to grow in the particular division I work for, favoritism throughout the division.

      Pros

      Great place to learn that this is not a real career! Go back to the drawing board. You are temporary! They will promise the moon, but all you will end up with is a bad taste in your mouth!

      Cons

      You will never move up the ladder. You will never escape the multiple layers of micro-management. You are a number. Most people last only a few years in the sales department. Again this is not a career. This job is a joke and the people laughing at you are the upper management. Good luck.
