    Pros

    National homebuilder with a solid reputation, great way to get your feet at the door and learn the industry.

    Cons

    Management is stuck in their old ways of doing business, very disorganized and dysfunctional only promotes friends or family. Redundant procedures causes a lot of confusion from land to purchasing and sales. Incompetent managers and supervisors, they tolerate sales reps leaving early or not showing up to work since management does the same. Awful pay to our partners makes it very difficult to deliver a good quality home. Company in financial trouble, credit rating was lowered, so it makes it nearly impossible to start new communities since they have no access to credit, check out the stock price and overall performance.

    Advice to Management

    Talented employees do not put up to incompetence therefore they leave, overall they need to look deep and do a radical change to the K Hovnanian culture or at least this division does.

    Pros

    none that I experienced the time I worked for them. Greed rules and the customer suffers. things a very lower standards

    Cons

    getting paid for your contract is extremely difficult and a real pain. They lose subs like there is no tomorrow. Not surprising of the quality problems that exist

    Advice to Management

    Pay your bills on time. Sign good contracts and you might get people that speak English and can read prints doing work for your customers

    Pros

    Some areas of the office had fun employees!

    Cons

    I have been here little over two years and they have gone through two HR's already. Highly unethical place to work at. If you speak up or try to raise issues against the big boss they find a way to get rid of you. Turnover is so high but nothing is being done about addressing issues.
    Only employees sees raised are construction, marketing or employees who brown nose or are YES man

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and stand up for your employees. Stop playing favorites!!!!

    Pros

    Chance to work with some good people. Good location.

    Cons

    When things were good senior management all bought expensive cars and we're living large. None of that trickled down. Horrific pay and benefits. Many people have been there their entire careers and would be lost if they ever had to work somewhere else. I actually feel bad for some that feel trapped because of the good location.

    Advice to Management

    No.
