      I have been working at Fairfield Residential full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great company culture, good benefits, advancement opportunities, recognition. Diversity, executive management is not stiff, clothing and phone allowances

      Cons

      Goals are set high not unattainable though, as with all property management companies theres always the risk of your property being sold

      Advice to Management

      My only advice to management is understanding more of the challenges to being onsite, some processes and policies are great on paper but do not translate well when actually working with residents face to face

      I worked at Fairfield Residential full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Enjoyed the team I worked with up to the Assistant Manager. Great company if you are just staring in leasing and want to gain experience.

      Cons

      Property manager was very condescending and passive aggressive.

      Pros

      Good company for leasing consultants to get their feet wet and get some decent training. After you get a good base training, move on.

      Cons

      Onsite staff is mostly hard working but that’s where it ends. Upper management has unrealistic expectations in markets they know little about. The sales process is horrendous, with a lot of finger pointing when something doesn’t quite go the way they expected. Earned sales bonuses are withheld with no notice. There is a history of inappropriate behavior in some departments but it is rarely addressed due to fear of retaliation....

      Pros

      Decent pay structure is about it

      Cons

      This company flows through Property Managers more than I have every seen in my career. They usually hire narcissitic aggressive personality in management. You know, the ones who had nothing going for them when they were younger, but acquire a management position and loose their minds on people who could have possibly bullied them. Senior management is looks down on lower level staff and the act faker than a counterfeit...

      Advice to Management

      Go on Undercover Boss and see how people are being mistreated and targeted while the "Popular Property staff" hint, hint, class A properties get rewarded. Treat staff with respect, especially when your turn over rate is high and everyone at the property has pulled together to keep the residents happy. Post jobs and allow current staff to apply instead of conducting shady business practice by firing Property Managers...

      Pros

      Great insurance, 401K and PTO benefits

      Cons

      Politics and cliques seem to drive business decisions resulting in unqualified personnel placed in leadership positions. Lost sight of the basic business principles and is more concerned with telling a good story and the appearance of success. Integrity has taken a back burner to cut throat corporate america tactics. Company has sold a large number of properties for 4 consecutive years without many new acquisitions...
