It was a good place to work until they moved their offices to the middle of nowhere

    Pros

    In it's day First American was a great place to work, since the change in ownership it has gone down hill. First American used to be the "Biggest Small Company you'll ever work for". Local, State and Regional managers were grown from the bottom up. First American has/had an excellent benefits package which has been fading during the market down turn. Compensation is below standards, but this is a reflection on the health of the Title industry.

    Cons

    Majority Shareholder is a mutual fund with no interest in the long term health of the company, it is currently being split up into separate companies. It appears that employees are being forced into retirement, based on age and compensation. Full time employees are being downsized and thier jobs offshored or replaced by temp workers.

    Advice to Management

    As a stock holder I am very happy with the Management.

    Pros

    There was a time that First American would be a place to start and end your career due to retirement those days are long gone

    Cons

    Outsourcing to India and the Phillipines which has caused hundreds of layoffs to longtime employees, thus lowering the moral and inflicting the fear of layoffs to the employees

    Advice to Management

    To not forget about the employees that have put their heart into First American, to ask for their input without fear of reprisal and not depend on management that would most likely have their own agendas in mind
