    I have been working at First American full-time

    Pros

    Work Independently, Flexible working location, benefits. Love the communication available to myself if needed. Training is amazing and very through.

    Cons

    Its hard to get ahead in the company. If you do, it can take months to actually get a response from HR. Pay is okay but if you are underpaid you can get anything else.
