Terrible Management
Construction Field Manager (Former Employee) –  Carmel, NYApril 27, 2016
Company does not care about employees. DO NOT Work for these people. Poor contracting by purchasing department leads to poor work ultimately to be blamed on you, and only the customer really suffers.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Terrible Management

purchasing coordinator (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GADecember 17, 2015
The purchasing coordinator position could have been better if they had a better structure and people knew what they were doing. The structure in the department was like a elementary school. The manager was the principal, the senior coordinators were the teachers and the purchasing coordinators are the students. I am sure they will have a high turn over rate. It's really not a purchasing job it's data entry and they like to give "errors". The productivity scale is backwards and nobody was making the numbers that management put in place. And really no advancement in the department you would have to go to a different department. I would not recommend to apply to this position and only good thing I would say about it is its a good location. Other than that I don't miss it at all.
Pros
flexible work hours
Cons

undesirable new/hire and departmental middle management makes this a 1 star environment
Loan Consultant (Former Employee) –  englewood, coloradoSeptember 18, 2015
Job Culture is an ironically hypocritical term abused in this society we've crafted and it is NOT just for the customers you serve, but the management in which you work under.

The concept of this company is one of a kind. It is a great place to work and your co workers and neighbors around you are great people.
HOWEVER, IF you're not minding having a your assigned new-hire and departmental middle management structure be hyperfocused on micromanagement, who live by, and carry the spirit of the "At-will" employment problem in this state of colorado, and who will remind you you're on a probation period on a daily basis within the 90 days, then this is the place for you.
Pulte Mortgage is plagued with miserable, unethical people running this company in their origination and processing departments, as they have a "culture" of firing people with no warning, no chances, not willing to give someone a fair shot at a "probation period" of 90 days to prove themselves. They will lie through their teeth to get you out of there if they don't like you and try to politely use phrases like "you're just not a 'fit' here".. when in fact they can't come up with a proper, truthful reason why the don't WANT you to work there. These are people that are so desperate to throw their weight around to try to impress the senior management, they will fire people for unfounded reasons to make themselves look better. These people are so myopic within their bubble, they can't understand the reality of other people trying to survive in this turbulent corporate job economy we have

Anyone who engages in
  more... this activity of impulse firing people without truely providing the employees a FAIR chance to work out struggles and challenges of the job in a reasonable time frame, ARE despicable people... *If you're reading this, AND you've been directly responsible for firing someone who truely did not want to be moved on, who pleaded for a chance, or a retribution and was committed to their jobs - and you did NOT give them a chance- then you deserve every word of this criticism.

I'm saying this because I've watched this happen numerous times by a particular few managers who need to be fired themselves to understand WHAT it's like to do that to someone who truely didn't want to be out of a job.

IN order for this the englewood colorado head quarters of the mortgage operations to be a better place, they need to clean house of the people who'd been there for 5-10 years who are in any kind of a management position, and this would cleanse the environment of entitled, power hungry, miserable managers from imposing their biased, entitled, unhappy dispositions on the people who are struggling and striving to develop their careers, and maintain their stability in this rediculous job economy we have here.

Until you've lived through instability and survival -wondering how you're going to pay your bills due at the end of the month - you will NEVER know how hard life is. Every single person NEEDs to go through that to gain humility and compassion for other people.

So until a specific few new hire managers and departmental heads resign, or get fired, this place will be a shortterm revolving door of an environment. And this goes for almost any company that has people in charge of production based environments.

Too many expectations that cannot be met.
Management says one thing and then does another.
Incentives are not incentives. Give incentives and then takes them away.
Good medical, dental and 401K benefits
Pros
Great Co-workers

Hypocracy

One of the Original Stalwarts
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Wesley Chapel, FLMay 29, 2015
PulteGroup to this day remains one of the stalwarts in the Homebuilding industry. Bill Pulte's vision of value, price/value relationships, innovative floor plans, customer service processes, delivering first rate customer service experience, resulting in "Customers For Life" is, to this day, one of the many strengths of Pulte.

I worked for Pulte Homes from 1998-2003, and though times have changed, Headquarter location has changed, the names and faces of the Organization have changed, the heart of this company has always been evident to me, with a sense of working with a top-tier team.

I worked at Lexington Oaks, in Wesley Chapel, one of Pulte's highest profile subdivisions in the United States, at the turn of the new millennium. The way in which builders manage processes is what separates them, which creates "unique selling propositions"...as they all claim to "..build the best house." With Pulte Homes, there exists a discernible difference in the manner in which processes are managed.

The result is "Customers for Life", delighted customers, buyers who allowed me to ask, with ease, and get, referrals. A builder who allows its sales people to manage a world-class customer experience is light years ahead of the competition. Pulte Homes fits that bill.
Pros
Customer Experience Management, Process Management, creating Customers For Life
Cons
Reshuffling of territories and Regional Managers every 3-4 years had a tendancy to stifle momentum, unnecessary turnover.

Used to be a great company when the founder was around
SYSTEMS ENGINEER II (Current Employee) –  Bloomfield Hills, MIMay 26, 2014
Good knowledgeable people, caring about the business and each other. Ability to work from home if needed, as soon as job is done. Free lunches four days a week, free fruits and snacks. But decision to move the headquarters to Atlanta forces most of the people out, and it's not likely that culture will stay the same in new place.
Pros
free lunches, flexible hours
Cons
health insurance only so-so, unknown how the ompany works in new place
