5 Reasons Why You Should Work at Neal Communities

Monday, June 14, 2021  |  Neal Team, News

Neal Communities is hiring, and we invite you to apply at www.nealcareers.com to become a part of the Neal team.

As you look at the job opportunities available, you’ll find a variety of ways you can build a rewarding future as part of a growing company. Taking a position at Neal Communities – one of the Herald Tribune’s Best Places to Work for 2019 and 2020 in Sarasota and Manatee Counties – is a way to begin a fulfilling career at a company that values its employees and their contributions.

Here are five reasons why employees love being a part of the Neal Communities team and why the company is a great place to work:


1. We recruit smartly.

Building a strong team and corporate culture starts with our recruitment process. We’re intentionally rigorous and use a collaborative selection process so that both the manager and the applicant feel confident in their decision to move forward. We want the position to be good fit for the applicant and for the applicant to be a good fit for the department they’d be joining.

2. We care about what we do.

At Neal Communities, we’re passionate about building beautiful, thriving communities that residents love to call home.  We are all ambassadors of the brand and no matter what department we may fall into, employees at Neal Communities are excited to come to work each day and to play their role in building vibrant communities for families, active adults and anyone else interested in living on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

3. We value our employees and the connection we have with them.

All employees at Neal Communities have a voice that is listened to and appreciated. We all share a building, and many employees see Pat Neal, chairman and founder of Neal Communities, every day.

And every year we take time to celebrate the commitment and success of our team members through initiatives like our Years of Service recognition or our annual Guiding Principles Award, which honors an employee who illuminates the principles that guide us at Neal Communities.

4. We’re not a corporate builder.

Neal Communities is a family-owned business, so we don’t get lost in corporate red tape. The company doesn’t have to answer to stockholders or board members, and employees don’t have to worry about hitting numbers dictated by executives in another state.

Instead, we are empowered to Do The Right Thing and  Neal employees still have plenty of great opportunities for compensation growth, bonuses and career advancement, all while working on rewarding projects.

5. We care about the communities in which our employees live and work.

Neal Communities has a long history of community involvement, and we’ve donated time or funds to local schools and community organizations including the Pace Center for Girls, Boys & Girls Clubs and the Salvation Army. We also support causes that are important to our employees, and we listen when they let us know about a need in the community. For example, the company recently made a donation to Sisters Sowing Seeds, a nonprofit supporting the empowerment of young women that was started by a Neal employee. We also contributed funds to the North Port Mustangs Pop Warner organization after an employee involved with the organization told us about their needs for safe, new equipment for their young players.
