    I have been working at First American Equipment Finance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Never thought I'd find a job/company that I genuinely love so early into my career, but First American is all that and then some. It's inspiring to come to work every day surrounded by passionate, hard-working people who have your best interest in mind.

    Cons

    Salaries amongst Marketing team members can vary greatly. Not much transparency.

    Pros

    Great culture, great leadership, great mission. For a leasing company, it doesn't get any better.

    Cons

    Not a very exciting industry. Not much has changed in the last 50 years with equipment leasing, and most likely much won't change going forward.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Some of the best leadership I've worked for.

    I have been working at First American Equipment Finance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I cannot say enough great things about this company. The leadership is incredible, honest, and very forward thinking. Throughout the year multiple surveys go out to ask for any changes or improvements we would like to see in action and then those topics are immediately addressed and shared with the company (I know this because I am on a team that reviews and discusses survey results directly with the CEO). The company is very thorough with the hiring process and because of this I can honestly say there is not a single person I work with that I do not enjoy working alongside. Lastly, I've never heard or come across such a rewarding compensation and benefits package in every way you can think - in fact, in just my first year I found myself on an all expenses paid vacation to Grand Cayman where I got to bond with my coworkers for a week which makes the work environment feel more like being with family.

    Cons

    Honestly, I cannot think of anything

    Advice to Management

    Keep on listening to all employees as we grow

    Pros

    First American has all the features and perks of a silicon valley company right here in Rochester! Of all the jobs I have ever had my earning potential and career opportunity have never been this great. Every day is enjoyable, from the incredible office space, technology and culture to the awesome people. There are more perks than I can count and plenty of opportunities to get to know colleagues. Sales colleagues have plenty of freedom to develop a business that meets their skill sets and achieve BIG results.

    Cons

    None. Love coming to work every day.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to innovate and keep up the good work!!

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work First American!
