    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!

    Pros

    Great company as far as pay, vacation and overall.

    Cons

    Tends to follow the "one bad egg ruins the whole batch" mantra. There's been several times when a situation occurred and a new policy was put in place that added more work for those who were following policy to begin with.

    Pros

    Fairfield Residential gave me the opportunity to start in this industry and so far in this 4 years with the company im loving it! I started as a Leasing Consultant and got to promoted to Assistant Manager in less than a year and a half and im now in my second property with Fairfield! I have learned so many things and grown as a professional and all thanks to FF. And just to demonstrate how Fairfield really appreciates employees, at the beginning of this year i got the best surprise ever when i received an email letting me know i was chosen by my VP to participate in a very important conference room pilot to evaluate 2 software platforms that will make a huge impact to the Company and in which i am so excited for to arrive! Thank you Fairfield and for many more years together!!!
