Construction Manager (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – April 5, 2017
No consideration is given to the balance between work and life. The work is piled on until failure is immanent and then the employee is berated for poor performance. The compensation is not sufficient to overcome not having a life outside of the workplace.
VP Finance - Phoenix Division (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 7, 2017
The company has young management at key positions, however the CEO is well seasoned and drives the company with his entrepreneurial spirit and his guidance on keying into the segment that is support by regional markets.
This is a home builder company, the employee and management are an amazing group all around. The president of the company so family oriented understands everyone's situation flexible place, I enjoyed all there free breakfast, lunches, trips, gatherings all there volunteer work they help in whatever they can.
I loved my job. I loved the people I worked with. It was an excellent support group and employees thrived on seeing others excel. The job was challenging but fulfilling. One of the best places I've ever worked.

Sales Consultant (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 21, 2016
This company is a growing division with some positives and some negatives. primarily their management is based around fear and job security. Motivation and drive from management streams from the upper management pressuring them to pressure the sales teams.
Finacial compensation is good enough to overlook negatives
SR. Construction Mngr (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 16, 2016
There management was weak, the orientation to company policies and procedures was only fair, but any support to the field was poor. the material takeoffs were very poor and shortages common . they would never be corrected even when the field would send in the corrections.

Sales and Marketing Representative (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – April 7, 2016
Terrible place to work. Poor management ethics. No follow through with Employment Guidelines, Systems and Procedures. Annual reviews are a joke if they happen at all. No exit interviews. False promises made often and a fear factor for speaking out is prevalent. Cronyism and incompetency at management levels is rampant. "Personal" relationships on the job influenced staffing decisions. Corporate Human Resources needs to get more involved with employees in the field so they can report accurately to corporate management and shareholders as to what is really going on at the division level.
Managers play favorites and do not appreciate employees that actually do quality work. In order to move up in this company it is about who you know not what you know. They make is seem like it will be a fun company to work for but once you are in it is a whole different story, they expect miracles with little to no instruction.
Realtor (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – August 6, 2015
I wonderful friend and former colleage of mine just started working as Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Meritage Homes. At the time the real estate market was just beginning to go down. My friend wanted to put together a "dream team" to go strong and sell these homes inspite of the economic decline. I was asked to come on board and I was placed in a very high end community. My community was brand new, only the model and 4 other floor plans were under construction. The first month I was working out of a trailer. I really enjoyed Meritage Homes. They had a great reputation and fantastic floor plans. It was very easy for me to stand behind the product. Three months in my husband received a job offer to work for Volvo North America in Greensboro, NC. We started to put things in action to move right away. Meritage Homes were very excited and happy for my family.
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – June 2, 2015
Worked hard and helped out when necessary and where needed. Still keep in contact with people that I worked with. This was my first full time job since moving to the USA, so it was quite a learning curve in respect of how things were done here as opposed to England. Hardest part of the job was when management changed - went from a family owned business to a larger national company, and also this was at the start of the housing crash.
