    Pros

    The company culture is great. A lot of the employees have been at the company for over 10 years. Management is really cares about their employees and the product. A lot of opportunities to learn, you just have to dive in and ask questions. Everyone is willing to help.

    Cons

    PTO vacation could be better. You need at least a decade to even get 3 weeks vacation. Tuition reimbursement is also minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Fairfield Residential full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    So far, everyone has been very laid-back, and genuinely seems to enjoy one another's company, which makes for a positive enjoyable work day.

    Cons

    I was told at the interview there was a housing discount, which was a huge plus for me and one of the reasons I left my old job. On my first day, I was told "there is no more room in the budget for discounts." While I would have likely still taken the job, it really rubbed me the wrong way. It is not industry standard for there to be no housing discount.

    Advice to Management

    Management team has been very pleasant.

    The benefits are great! The company as a whole is wonderful, very supportive executive management. Because FF is a large company, there are more resources available to provide support.

    Very hands off company for the most part, too large for much actual company interaction

    I have been working at Fairfield Residential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for Fairfield Residential for almost 4 years, with very few complaints, we have experienced much change over the past few years, but these changes have all strengthened our company and our future outlook. Workload for onsite employees has been reduced, streamlining operations implemented, large portfolios acquired, upper management has become more transparent about company happenings and technical advances have been made to improve time management for all. Salaries are in line, if not above industry standards, benefit cost and coverage is excellent, employee recognition events are outstanding and for a large company you don't feel like a number. Very little micromanagement. Fairfield hires good people and then lets them do their jobs!

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can be a struggle (although some is self inflicted), the last two years has proven challenging with the sale of many properties and loss of some good employees, no orthodontic coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Please stay transparent as Fairfield continues to transition and grow, and never lose sight of the fact the boots on the ground are the ones that make it happen!
