    I have been working at Fairfield Residential full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are rare moments in your career where you come across someone that walks everything they talk. I am proud to work for and with four strong women that lead through kindness, positivity, and truth. I have read some reviews in the past that say the organization is clicky, but I tend to disagree. There is a genuine spirit of inclusion and accessibility to almost anyone in the company. When the VP team makes a site visit, which is about once to twice a year, they take great care in knowing our associates and making connections; everyone has a voice, and every voice matters. When the COVID crisis hit, I was impressed with the way our leadership team responded. Information was sent out and to create an environment where everyone felt confident and comfortable; the VPs and Operations Director held weekly calls for questions and ensured an open dialog. When the time came to start reopening, the strategic thoughtfulness continued. Our world is going to look and feel very different since COVID. I'm glad I work for a company that puts careful thought into how we will navigate through it all. I would be remiss if I did not mention our Asset team; they dig into data with a common-sense approach that allows open and honest communication on how we partner to manage our assets. They understand that properties cannot be profitable if they are not well-maintained and customers are unhappy. They do what they can to ensure our assets are well maintained which makes our properties and our Property Managers successful.

    Cons

    Third-party management can be difficult based on the owner but overall Fairfield Leadership and Asset Management teams do a great job navigating and managing those relationships.

    Pros

    I have worked for a hand full of property management companies and I can say hands down, Fairfield Residential is the best! Our company truly has its employees best interest at heart. They are always ahead of the curve providing us with the latest and greatest of everything, the opportunities at Fairfield are endless. I was able to advance my career very quickly in the first few months due to the growth of the company and training provided. I have been able to relocate multiple times as well as travel to provide additional support. Fairfield listens to their employees needs and wants as well as they provide us with the proper tools to allow us to be more efficient. At Fairfield it is family, the support and kindness that is experienced daily genuinely comes from the top. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing team.

    Cons

    Any cons I have ever encountered, I have always addressed them and were able to get them resolved.

    I have been working at Fairfield Residential full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love the culture! It's a TEAM environment! The company is professional and has the experience to teach you everything you need to know to grow in your career. Everyone from upper management is nice and easy to interact with. I feel like they really care about their employees. Great benefits! If you are good at managing your time you can have a good work - life balance. This company has a great reputation, produces results and will make you detail oriented if you already aren't.

    Cons

    There is alot of responsibility for a Property Manager. More than some companies that I've worked for. If you aren't a strong property manager you may not make it in this company. Also, they buy and sell alot so if you get comfortable somewhere your property may get sold in a few years.
