    I have been working at Fairfield Technologies part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They have very flexible schedules for the students that they hire in Fredericksburg and work with us well to get the most out of our time without riding us too hard so we no longer do well in school. They are very understanding about school and work with you when it comes to school work and other things.

    Cons

    No promotions as far as I can tell from my experience working in the Fredericksburg office so far. Also, a lot of the tasks are given and turned in online and not much face to face interaction with them.

    I worked at Fairfield Technologies full-time (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.

    I have been working at Fairfield Technologies full-time (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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Test Engineer in Silver Spring, MD

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Glad you're active in keeping benefits up-to-date, it shows you care. Also appreciate the effort getting us to CMMI level 3.
