I worked at Toll Brothers

Pros

Great salary and benefit package. They do every thing possible to try and show a high degree of professionalism aside for taking care of their professions.

Cons

Great salary and benefit package. They do every thing possible to try and show a high degree of professionalism aside for taking care of their professions. Very Cliquish environment. Its the only job I ever worked that despite high metrics your ascension is decided by how well the superiors like you personally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Grow up. Start promoting based on metrics and merit. It is one of the few home building companies where the builder of your home could not lead, manage nor has a Idea of how you domicile is to be put together. Their success has been based on great construction managers not project managers. However, in this tough environment that have taken to remove the post of construction manager and outsource that position. The quality of a toll home has started to deteriorate at a tremendous rate.

    Pros

    The best thing about work at this company is that the benefits are very good. They probably have one of the best benefits package in the industry.

    Cons

    Wow, where do I begin? This company has no regards for its employees. They are very unfair and will forget that you have a family. Although we are completely understaffed, they continue to pile on more and more work that should be handled by upper management. Marketing does not do its job to market the communities. They instead claim that they are so busy and that the people working in the communities need to think of ways to market their own communities, which takes away from selling and time with customers. All this always leads to unhappy homeowners. In addtion they take FOREVER to build a home! For a small 2000 sq. ft. home they will take about 12 months. While other large builders can build the same home in 4 months. The pay is awful and the hours are long. Expect to work more than 50 hours a week and forget about having any days off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Automate all of the reports and bring all systems up to date. Rotate weekends so employees can spend time with their families at least one weekend a month. Also, keep in consideration that everyone has a personal to take care of. It is not all about Toll Brothers.

    I worked at Toll Brothers

    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!!!
