Pros

Summer fridays and the ability to telecommute. Understanding VP--knows his craft. OT available if willing to work the hours.

Cons

Short sighted micro-management and rampant favoritism. More time fixing non-problems than focusing on client demands.

Advice to Management

Merit based, not tenure based. Wrong people in the wrong jobs.

    I have been working at First Advantage full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have seen an increased desire to connect with employees and make work much more enjoyable. Within my department, management has been in constant communication and has been both personable and professional. I have worked at several large companies and I would rate First Advantage in the top 20% of them as a good place to work. The compensation has gotten better too. The CEO has been replaced by Scott Staples and have had several opportunities to meet and talk to him. He has an open door and is very personable. I see good things from him.

    Cons

    There's always room for growth, but never enough time.

    Advice to Management

    A position dedicated to employee engagement would definitely help.
