  1. "Good Small Company"

    I have been working at Fairfield Technologies full-time

    Pros

    It is nice working for a small company where upper management cares about and knows each individual. Fairfield also gives appreciation for good work, and other perks. Decent health insurance, 401K, and PTO.

    Cons

    Salary is below market value for position/location and is not quite competitive with other tech subcontractors in the area. Health insurance also takes a decent portion of this salary.

    Pros

    Very professional work from home position
    Secure job, great experience and useful to have on resume
    Management is very considerate in regards to allowing time off for unexpected trouble like illness

    Cons

    I honestly have no complaints with Fairfield. There's been no issue with my employment there and they have been nothing but helpful and informative.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being considerate to you employees. Maybe offer more opportunities to pick up additional responsibilities

    I worked at Fairfield Technologies part-time

    Pros

    I worked with people the same age as I. We were usually the only ones in the office so we worked independently.

    Cons

    No good direction to work from. No clear description of what exactly the company does during training. Little to no guidance. Wasn't sure if I was working for a real company or not.

    Advice to Management

    Be present more so your interns/workers know what to do. Too many times I was confused of what to do because there was absolutely no guidance.

    Pros

    Fairfield Technologies is a small company which makes them very flexible as well as family friendly. They have good company benefits and an extensive paid time off policy.

    Cons

    In recent years, healthcare costs have gone up drastically. Also some coworkers make more money, but they are under the same contract.

    I have been working at Fairfield Technologies part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have very flexible schedules for the students that they hire in Fredericksburg and work with us well to get the most out of our time without riding us too hard so we no longer do well in school. They are very understanding about school and work with you when it comes to school work and other things.

    Cons

    No promotions as far as I can tell from my experience working in the Fredericksburg office so far. Also, a lot of the tasks are given and turned in online and not much face to face interaction with them.

    Keep doing what you are doing

    I worked at Fairfield Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fairfield is a small company and doesn't seem to have any office politics. The folks in the head office respect and support their employees working at the client sites. They encourage training and have a simple Personal Time Off policy consolidating sick days, vacation, jury duty, etc. The company president visited our project site once a month to meet with project management, then stopped by to visit with each Fairfield employee. The company is constantly pursuing new business and writing proposals, so there is growth rather than attrition.

    Cons

    The main offices (Chantilly and Fredericksburg) are not near most of the client sites, so employee/company business is conducted by email.


  10. "Not the best place to start your professional career"

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

    Pros

    No traffic to get to the office.

    Cons

    Unpaid lunch breaks, no room for professional development or advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Quit using interns to fulfill your marketing presence. Stop using interns as pawns to add value to your company. Invest in an administrative specialist position or a receptionist. More advancement opportunities should be given to loyal employees.
