    Pros

    Team work. Casual office environment.

    Cons

    Red tape in order to get anything decided on. Decision depends on a small few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay to hire good people. We would all be happier and more productive with more staff.

    I have been working at Toll Brothers full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is very large, and as a result, is resilient to most economic downturns. The benefits packages are standard for most larger companies as are the salaries. There are many opportunities to acquire extra pay through overtime, and occasional incentives for increased production beyond the yearly bonuses. The overtime is optional which means that there is a very fair balance between work and life but if you choose to participate, you can make large sums of extra money. There are always new initiatives for employee satisfaction to increase morale in this department.

    Company (not department specific) Perks:
    On campus gym
    Game/Break room
    Lots of friendly people
    Holiday celebration contests/parties

    Cons

    The work is monotonous and will largely go without any type of accolade. Because there are employees that have been here for a while and plan on staying around, there is slim to no chance of upward promotion. The promotions are, as far as can be discerned, not based on any objective data but rather seem to be handed out in terms of year of service or at managers subjective discretion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Architecture Specific: When implementing large scale updates to the product, allow time for employees to fully finish what they need to before implementing another. The backlog of outdated work will only hurt the company in the end.

    Allow lower level employees to experience more of the company operations outside of the office environment.

    Pros

    If you are new to development this place is great to learn. They have enough money behind them that they aren't as concerned with the little mistakes as they are with keeping the machine moving.

    Cons

    There are a lot of software programs specific to Toll that will take time to learn. There are a lot of systems because they are so large, it can get messy with paper work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PM's bonus should be based off of how many homes they close.

    Pros

    There are some great people who work or worked there, and that's big plus: But you won't find a lot of ex employees who sing the praises of Toll Brothers. If you are sales person during a boon time, you'll make some good money.

    Cons

    It is normal to work 6 day weeks, upper management is not very creative in marketing and it's very difficult to have a long career here.
