First American... AKA "First to downsize in America"

Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Santa Ana, CA

ProsIf you want a "Big Company " name on your resume, this is a great place to start. There are plenty of great opportunities for the right person, if you are willing to apply yourself. Employee morale is just like any other place - you either fit in or you don't. I will say that they have great benefits.

ConsWay too top-heavy. Since it is a fast paced environment, management frowns upon excessive time off. Of course by excessive, I mean more than 3 or 4 days off in a row. There is A LOT of nepotism throughout mid-level management and above. The work / life balance is not that great. Many times you are asked to work late and on the weekends for no additional pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementCare more about doing what you say you are going to do and stop treating people like numbers.

    First American promotes family values almost as often as they promote family members.
