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

    Pros

    Best working environment. Everyone comes to work with smiles on their faces! We work as a team. Good Insurance too. Corporate is very involved and cares. Great company all around. Think everyone enjoys their job!

    Cons

    Some employees get free apartments others get only 20% wish it was better than that only because I almost can't afford it. Other than that it's wonderful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up because we are the best management company!

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

    Pros

    I LOVE THIS COMPANY!!!! This job has been such a blessing. My team is amazing and we work together like a healthy family. There is not a weak link. Corporate is very supportive and willing to teach you if there is something lacking. They have a strong "we can do it" attitude. I have been here since July of this year and feel this will be home for the rest of my career!!

    Cons

    Not really anything to complain about. I felt it would have been nice to get a christmas card or a gift card from them through the holidays being such a large corporation. But, not really an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Continue building the teams in a positive way. It works the way you're doing it!! Thank you for this opportunity. I am grateful!!!

    I have been working at Fairfield Residential full-time

    Pros

    Fairfield prepares you very well for the world of Property Management. Training is phenomenal and covers basically everything that you will encounter. The managers that I have had have all been caring people, who really do care about the well-being of their employees, as well as of their development for the company. Fairfield does a good job in keeping employees because we feel like a part of the family.

    Cons

    I can't personally think of a downside I have to working here. I have not had any experience in which I feel that I would quit my job at Fairfield.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The opportunity for growth and training is wonderful. I'm so glad I'm here!

    I have been working at Fairfield Residential full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was hired with no experience and was promoted twice in two years. Hard work is rewarded and the company frequently promotes from within.

    Cons

    A lot of responsibility, but in these rolls that is to be expected. Also means a lot of control over what you are doing.

    I can't think of any cons- your career is what you make it. If there are cons- I figure its my responsibility to turn it into an opportunity, and if you make it to our team- we hope you will feel the same!

    Keep doing what you're doing! Keep growing the company and your employees!
