Starts out as a great company with a welcoming attitude. You are told you will drink the "blue cool aid" and from the surface seems like a very good company to work for. The home office is great and welcoming but the longer you are there the more you realize how disorganized and inept the people they have in place are. Failure to see the increasing demand for trades they are ill equipped to keep up with production, poor designs for the price they want to pay trades in Florida, take off errors, they do not like anyone to take initiative and stand out as a leader. Upper management on the division level are clueless on actually knowing how to manage and seem unaware of the realities of the market. They do not market their properties and therefore don't know how to drive sales. Purchasing is way understaffed and overworked. They have no real land department so they never properly do a lot take down - lots are too high, too low, obstructions, cracked curbs, buried whips etc. As a builder you are supposed to just adapt to their incompetence and deal with it while keeping production going. Overall disorganized and not able to adapt to a growing market - too busy covering things up from the Houston Office and scared to death of Mike Humphrey who is a reasonable, fair and intelligent man - probably because they know they are inadequate for the job.
management on a local level is clueless
