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

    I worked at Fairfield Technologies as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule and workload for UMW students. Great place for students to gain work experience, especially business students. Experience that I gained at Fairfield is extremely helpful in finding a job after college, especially the recruiting work during the internship. Management understands that you are new to this environment and provide constant encouragement and advice. Management has you work on a various types of tasks so the job does not get repetitive. Great place for a college student to grow and gain substantial real-world experience.

    Cons

    not a lot of face to face interaction however there is no lack of communication/interaction. The internet in the Fredericksburg office is a little slow.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    A small company, it is led by a technically competent and hard-working president who keeps up with the latest technologies and business opportunities, and is constantly marketing to find us new projects. FTI is a lean organization, with a small office and management staff supporting a group of IT professionals. Management cares about employees' needs, and are continuously researching the best benefit packages.

    Cons

    Almost all the employees work at client sites, and communication with HQ is sometimes sporadic. FTI has slots on various projects as a subcontractor, but often the higher-up positions are owned by the prime contractor, so advancement is limited.

    Advice to Management

    Glad you're active in keeping benefits up-to-date, it shows you care. Also appreciate the effort getting us to CMMI level 3.
