    I worked at Fastcase full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedules if you're not in customer support, nice people (non-upper-management) to work with. This company may be good as a stepping stone if you are fresh out of school.

    Cons

    Constant reduction of benefits (example: 401k contributions lowered from 6% to 3% without warning), raises and bonuses are rarely given, jobs are often misrepresented to new employees especially in customer support (even if you have a J.D. you're going to be working shift hours in 1st line customer support and fetching sandwiches for team lunches), chaotic project planning, payroll problems, constant conflicts between an immature HR/Finance head and the rest of company, an upper management that overworks its employees and pretends to care, a crappy office (dirty, cold in the winter, no privacy, too open / everything echos), very high employee turnover. Overall this company is run by people who move as much profit in their bank accounts as possible at the expense of their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be better organized, replace the HR/Finance head, hire people with proper business experience to run the company, give regular raises and proper bonuses, fix the 401k benefit

    I have been working at Fastcase

    Pros

    - most of the employees are friendly
    - the actual technology being promoted is interesting
    - the office's location is convenient

    Cons

    - the hours were misrepresented; the job was sold as being a 9-6, but the reality is that it is a shift job. expect to be there 8-5, or 11-8, and some weekends.
    - there was no real effort made to do the paperwork of my payroll. when the issue was brought to management, i was angrily told it was 'absurd' and 'ridiculous' that i was trying to receive my compensation. when prodded as to why there wasn't a check ready for at least my first week's work after having been there for almost four weeks and two pay dates had come and gone, i was told it was because they just didn't set it up in time. when i asked why it wasn't made clear beforehand that i wasn't informed that the pay periods would be different than expected so i could plan accordingly, neither HR nor management had an answer.
    - management was completely unprofessional in handling legitimate employee grievances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    in order for fastcase to attract the consistent caliber of employees it seeks, it needs to have an HR department that doesn't bully their employees, and a management style that doesn't allow and implicitly condone the HR department to berate and intimidate employees for legitimate grievances.
