    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.

    Pros

    Great sense of teamwork. Regions work together to achieve goals and everyone celebrates success.

    Cons

    Higher benefit premiums, but optional rewards you can redeem for gift cards annually.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster relationships between separate communities. The support is so valuable!
