      Pros

      First American is an atmosphere you won't find at most places. The company empowers us to make important decisions, treats us like family and pushes us to try new things. There is no complacency here, which is the biggest difference compared to other places I have worked.

      Cons

      I cannot think of any cons

      Best place to work with and for - and getting better

      Pros

      - Everyone is engaging, intelligent, and proactive. Everyone is great to work for and with, both with each other and with customers. - Effort is taken to put you in a team that you will respond and work best with based on your personality, strengths, and skills. - Exemplary work is credited and acknowledged. Everyone strives to go above and beyond. - Extremely open to improvement. Most colleagues are well aware of the company's shortcomings and faults, and action items are taken to ensure issues are met - nothing just sits in committee. - Coworkers are open-minded and welcoming.

      Cons

      - Teams can feel silo-ed - Diversity at the company is particularly limited, although (see: pros) many minority coworkers have helped form initiatives and committees that are changing this.

      Pros

      Great work environment, and a ton of opportunities to learn.

      Cons

      Nothing really. I've worked at other places where there were legit cons. With FAEF I'd really have to nitpick. Overall an awesome place.

      Start-up feel with proven success!

      Pros

      First American Equipment Finance is an amazing company to work for. It feels like working for a start-up company, without the apprehension of working for an actual start-up. They have proven success with their revenue growth and expanding employee base, but their office atmosphere is friendly, relaxing, and supportive. People are welcoming and want to hear your ideas, and employees have empowerment to move on their ideas vs. getting stuck in the slow moving decision making cycle of a large corporation. The interview process is long, but it's worthwhile.... each employee is hired with confidence and buy-in from their direct manager and many First American colleagues, and their confidence stays strong after you start your role. Overall, First American is a great company to work for, and if you want a company that is committed to your individual success along with the company's success, look for a position here.

      Cons

      No downsides to the position so far. Brand recognition is something that can grow, but that will come with time as the company continues to expand.

      The best of the best! Very Fortunate to be a part of FAEF!

      Pros

      Amazing opportunity for anyone looking to advance their career with a company that invests in their employees! The interview process was lengthy but is very organized so that you know you are a good fit for them, and that they are a good fit for you. New employees are welcomed with open arms with a well thought out training schedule and even a welcome reception. It is apparent that the company spends significant time investing in new employees to make sure they are trained properly and starting off on the right foot. Technology is the best of the best, everyone has a mac computer and access to great IT staff. It is reassuring to be backed by so many people that are always there to help. Great pay, great benefits. One of FAEF's main objectives is to be the best company to work for and they are doing a great job succeeding at it!

      Cons

      Be prepared for a lengthy interview process.

      Great people, but questionable in ethics and management style

      Pros

      - The workers here are great people and there are a lot of fun things to do with the company. For example, community service, happy hours, parties, etc. The social atmosphere is definitely great and they do a ton of internal marketing to boost moral.

      Cons

      - They over hire so there are days when work was hard to find and people would just spend all day asking for things to do, makes the work day extremely long and boring - Not the most morally sound company I have seen. They believe that if a CFO is signing a contract they should understand everything which is extremely complicated in an equipment lease. Instead of educating the customer on all topics, they put things in that are overly complicated which ultimately creates hidden costs and then if the customer is upset its a simple "it was in the contract" - Operations is significantly underpaid for what they have to deal with and the Sales Team or management isn't sensitive to this at all. Constant talk from the Sales team on how much money they all make and no regard for the individuals dealing with the angry customers and vendors getting paid pennies in comparison.
