I worked at First American full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Large organization with decent benefits. Large data center environment resulted in lots of learning opportunities

Cons

Politics and power struggles were impossible to navigate. High expectations resulted in a very high stress environment. No work-life balance there at all!

Advice to Management

Work together as one company with common goals, as opposed to multiple disparate entities with completely opposite paths.

    I have been working at First American full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly normal work schedule, some opportunity, nice cafeteria on campus. Exposure to many areas of business.

    Cons

    Limited room for growth, poor communication at times, employee review process needs revamping. Little or no mentoring of employees makes them literally unpromotable.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication from top down, heavy focus on employee development. This could really be a top notch company if a few changes were made.


  2. "Solid Company, Solid People"
