FAST prides itself on offering competitve salary and benefit packages for its employees.
Great health insurance, paid time off, no 401k matching, profit sharing for 401k.
The worst part is that the fast pause takes four years to accrue, but the best part is that there's plenty of vacation and time off available. Dental and eye insurance is a huge plus. Not having to pay to be relocated is great, but if you want to quit within six months of being moved you have to pay over six thousand dollars back.
• 401K isn't matched • The Sabbatical is hard to schedule • No work from home allowed at all unless you call in sick • The FSRA offered upon employment ($20,000/20% a year) “supposedly” is increased upon performance basis, but hardly anybody gets it and you’ll never get that full sum. It’s a way for them to evade taxes • They don’t encourage continuing education at all (whether it be conferences, classes, books).
Awesome benefits. Fully paid premiums for health, life, dental, vision, and disability insurance. One full month of paid leave (FAST Pause) every four years in addition to regular vacation time. Lots of free social and community events.
Great vacation with 4 week paid sabbatical every 4 years. FAST pays all insurance premiums.
I love the fully paid healthcare premiums! The deductible is low, the copays are low, and the out of pocket max is low. You can't find better healthcare, especially since all premiums are covered for your entire family!
The yearly general conference is awesome, FAST treats their employees very well. They pay for occasional lunches, have workplace snacks, competitive salary and healthcare with NO health care premiums. The FSRA (bonus) structure is peculiar and decreases overtime, profit share averages around 2-3% with a five-year vesting. No 401k matching. Great salaries. Lots of paid OT.
Paid conference trips...with the family! Full medical....for the family!
Full health coverage. No 401k marching. Standard vacation and holidays. Strict hours so no lax PTO as found in true tech companies.
Premiums are paid for, co-pays are generally not bad. FAST really needs to start matching 401k though. Below standard for this industry.
