    I have been working at First American Financial Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Being apart of First American has been an incredible experience as its organization built on bringing different backgrounds. One doesn't necessarily have to have title experience or real estate experience but it does help. The team I work with are incredible with many overseas who are incredibly professional and kind people. Supervisor is excellent with many years of experience and very professional.

    Cons

    No real cons that I can see. Every department has its challenges even ours.
