    I have been working at FastCAP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Regular evaluations and one on one meetings with management. They care about what you want to do with your career and help you get there within the organization. They also promote from within, which is great and there is a lot of potential for growth. And they have FREE FOOD - a full food bar and a fridge full of goodies. Office has a sweet view of the harbor. Awesome colleagues who have become close friends.

    Cons

    Things are very fast paced and certain teams can get a bit overloaded at times. There are always new faces popping up due to growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really feel like we are on the right track. Equipment purchases sometimes fall behind the growth of the team, so if I had to make a suggestion it would be to press the gas on equipment additions.

    Pros

    If there is no wind, row. - That's the attitude we keep at FastCAP, always forward.

    This place is where brilliant minds come together and create groundbreaking innovations in Energy Storage.

    I love my job!! It's been one of the busiest but most rewarding time of my career! You get to work with a some of the smartest and most passionate people. Awesome culture; it's a team effort from an engineer to building maintenance.

    More cool stuff
    - work 20 hr/wk and get benefits
    - awesome location and view from the office
    - employees get stock options, when the companies goes big you make more money!
    - FREE FOOD & DRINKS!!!!! So cool, who does that???
    - young management team, cool people, very approachable
    - real stake in the direction of the company

    You get to know your colleagues for more than just what they do here. Bi-monthly social events which are open to spouses and families.

    Cons

    High Expectations - I think it's a good problem to have.

    Pros

    -good benefits that start on your first day
    -good pay
    -flexible hours and chill work environment
    -project managers are good and set out expectations pretty clearly, but then give employees flexibility about how to do their work - so no micromanaging.
    -your not just a number here. everybody throw out ideas, and if its good - it gets worked in. Even really junior people on the team speak up and that's encouraged.
    -they have free breakfast and drinks at work
    -you get recognized for hard work
    -the company direction and mission is meaningful
    -people take pride in their work here

    Cons

    I've been here for a few years now, and I've got no complaints
