Pros

Overall great training and great co-workers. Overall it was a great job and I was able to gain experience in many different facets of the industry. I feel the experience and knowledge gained outweighs the negatives.

Cons

Long work hours. Little room for growth as the senior managers have been with the company forever and there are just not many senior positions. Monday evening meetings can last until well after 11pm AFTER working all day....complete waste of time and disregard for personal time. Project Managers WITH FAMILIES beware!! Be prepared to work long hours and many weekends at your families expense....no work/life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get introduced to the 21st century. Old technology has been replaced many times and will drastically improve company efficiency and performance. WAY WAY too much paperwork needed. NO MORE MONDAY NIGHT MEETINGS!!!! COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME!!!

    Pros

    Build a quality product
    Free Golf
    Work with some of the best subs
    Good location
    Corporate Entity/HQ very professional and decent

    Cons

    Management is too concerned with status and position
    No mentorship whatsoever
    Senior PMs are somewhat distant and disinterested in day to day operations
    Lacks Leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees and develop them. Everyone either hates it there or loves it there and it all depends on whether you are in the PMs in-crowd, which is just poor leadership.

    Pros

    Good exposure to various aspects of residential real estate development. Opportunity to take ownership of a project and to manage a team of real estate/construction professionals. Tremendous product.

    Cons

    Very poor management at the Regional level. Very little value placed in human capital. All employees are treated as easily replaceable cogs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take off the blinders and take a good, hard look at the the senior managers in the company. Some of them are in way over their heads and are ill-prepared to serve in leadership positions. Tenure and past success in project management roles alone should not automatically qualify somebody for advancement. A lot of strong talent (potential future leaders of the company) are chewed-up and spit out by frightened senior managers who would rather raise their voices and pound their fists than really try to manage strategically. Bob Toll is a tremendous CEO but he is turning his back on a problem in the company that needs to be addressed: Protecting buddies who happened to ride the wave of a ridiculously overheated housing market at the expense of younger talent is a short-sited practice that will have long-term consequences.
