    Pros

    Cozy and warm work environment, superiors inclined in helping and support new employees, good work time and good life/work balance.

    Cons

    Salary here not so high as sometimes it is allegedly described and benefits that get more intense during career ladders.

    I have been working at FastWeb (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's a great company to work with. There are plenty of people who really care about what they're doing. If you're fond of technology as I am, you'll always have the chance to get in touch with the newest things on the market. What I like most is that you're part of a whole: if you know what your colleagues do and how they do it, your job will get easier. The corporate identity has been built over the years thanks to very clever enterprise initiatives.

    Cons

    You have to be the maker of your destiny as no one will help you develop your talent. Besides some (fewer and fewer as time goes by) happy islands there's no real meritocracy. As the company grows it's getting more and more separated in sealed sectors. The meeting opportunities among different compartments are no longer a habit.

    Advice to Management

    "Squeeze and dream" is not a method to sistematically take people in. A manager should be in the front line, not in the rear one. Listen, but not just because you've been told to; it's useless if you don't understand the words.

    Pros

    FastWeb is a company owned by the corporation, Monster Worldwide. They pay fairly competitively and have good benefits. I believe Sal Iannuzzi has good intentions.

    Cons

    This was the MOST disorganized company I've ever worked for. I watched the company run itself into the ground. It was led by mostly well-meaning but VERY out of touch management. They tried hard but were way way too behind the times technologically to be running an online business. They have basically been taken over by another Monster-owned company who is very saavy. In a matter of months of gradually taking over the reins of many parts of the business, they've turned it around and I can only speculate will continue to do so. Lots and lots of people laid off, and eventually managers too. Replacing these managers who were stuck in 20th century technology and methods should help. The employees who were not mangers (more than half of them gone now) were actually up to date with the latest technologies, but their hands were almost COMPLETELY tied by upper management, many in my opinion just trying to appear relevant and hold onto their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those who work under you. Don't hide in your glass offices. Swallow you pride and listen to those who are more in touch with the times and your target audience--high school and college-aged kids and their parents.

    Pros

    + Daily exposure to cutting edge technology + Real drive for Innovation (lately declining, used to be better) + Casual attire, no formality needed + Can do approach at all level + Probably smarter than industry average people

    Cons

    - Career advancement rarely based on merit - Substantial inequity in salaries - Lack of transparency in internal relations - Lack of clear career path - Unpopular choices (such as relocation of branches) taken without considering empolyee work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Improve fairness, meritocracy and fairness of treatment towards employee Human Resource must plug in and start doing their job (how about defining a clear career path for each role?) Don't waste money in "internal climate survey" just use common sense
