I worked at Fairfield Technologies full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Fairfield is a small company and doesn't seem to have any office politics. The folks in the head office respect and support their employees working at the client sites. They encourage training and have a simple Personal Time Off policy consolidating sick days, vacation, jury duty, etc. The company president visited our project site once a month to meet with project management, then stopped by to visit with each Fairfield employee. The company is constantly pursuing new business and writing proposals, so there is growth rather than attrition.
Cons – The main offices (Chantilly and Fredericksburg) are not near most of the client sites, so employee/company business is conducted by email.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Fairfield Technologies full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – No traffic to get to the office.
Cons – Unpaid lunch breaks, no room for professional development or advancement opportunities.
Advice to Senior Management – Quit using interns to fulfill your marketing presence. Stop using interns as pawns to add value to your company. Invest in an administrative specialist position or a receptionist. More advancement opportunities should be given to loyal employees.

I have been working at Fairfield Technologies
Pros – A small company, it is led by a technically competent and hard-working president who keeps up with the latest technologies and business opportunities, and is constantly marketing to find us new projects. FTI is a lean organization, with a small office and management staff supporting a group of IT professionals. Management cares about employees' needs, and are continuously researching the best benefit packages.
Cons – Almost all the employees work at client sites, and communication with HQ is sometimes sporadic. FTI has slots on various projects as a subcontractor, but often the higher-up positions are owned by the prime contractor, so advancement is limited.
Advice to Senior Management – Glad you're active in keeping benefits up-to-date, it shows you care. Also appreciate the effort getting us to CMMI level 3.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
