    I have been working at First Advantage full-time (less than an year)


    Great Work/Life Balance! Working from home is great! Management is positive and encouraging. Company has gone through many changes due to acquisitions of very good companies and is now moving forward enthusiastically. Management has been transparent and honest about the changes and difficult past two years due to internal changes. I have found that when I reach out to employees in other divisions for assistance, they always help and lend a hand. There is a teamwork environment here even though many are home-based.


    The changes over the past two years have been tough on some people and they lost patience -- it is tough to turn it around and regain the trust/

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve on-going training and show employees you appreciate their tenure. Continue "thanking them" for their patience and hard work.
