Pros

Working as a sales consultant in Houston,TX was a wonderful experience. The market in Texas is steady, Texans are laid back so it was not stressful, and the managers apreciated the work we did. Of course, every manager is differet... My day as a sales cosultant started around 10am usually. Four to five hours in the model home could be spent napping given the number of people that come in on a weekday morning. I usually spent this time doing reports, follow-ups, marketing busy-work, or gossiping on the phone. When clients came in, put on your game face and sell! The only issue with this job is working Sundays until 6pm. I think work/life balance in the US is a joke period and this industry is a great example of that. However, the pay was great and the stress was low. A wonderful place to work if you do not have young children. Pros:
Beautiful environment
Great pay
Lots of vacation time

Cons

There is really no chance of upward moility for sales people. Most make their money and move on, very few ever get to management or corporate positions.

Advice to Management

Appreciate that everyone has a family! It is a waste of money and bad business to keep sales people in an empty office on Sunday night.

    Pros

    The company is committed to deliver a quality product at a good price to the consumer and stands behind their product. Treated employees and customers fairly.

    Cons

    Management changes could be quick and dramatic, with no forewarning.
    Corporate office middle management and staff in N.J. believed they had the answer to every problem, even ones they weren't familiar with. Too many experts with too little real experience. Often wondered if people got paid more for every slide in their PowerPoint presentations!

    Advice to Management

    Corporate management needs to leave local issues to local management. Make decisive decisions instead of just incremental changes.
