I worked at Toll Brothers

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.

    I worked at Toll Brothers

    Pros

    PMs are given a lot of autonomy, great hands on real estate experience, blend of field and office work, promote from within mentality, decent pay, stable builder.

    Cons

    Long hours (late monday nights), some weekend work, vastly different experiences based on your manager's style, workload can be very intense, a lot of customers have preconceived notion of builder - many voice their concerns..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break out of big home on small lot mentality and expand the number of urban infill projects.

    Pros

    Great support from other sales team members. Beautiful homes, fun atmosphere, great upper-management, nice opportunity to work for some of the best sales people.

    Cons

    Project Managemers are given too much control over the sales office. I was ripped-off on commission at least once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales staff needs direct and open communication with upper-management.
