At the end of the day, we're here to help you solve your technology problems. In order to be successful, we needed to create an environment in which every piece of our surroundings and plans helps us focus on that end.
So we did some soul-searching and came up with some core values. Which attributes must our employees and our plans possess for us to consistently reach our goal? Lots of companies have core values, and they all sound great, but we really wanted to commit to ours. We implemented them as guidelines for hiring, performance evaluation, and to gauge the overall state of our company culture.
We couldn't be happier with the results.
We built our team around people who live and breathe these values, and the result has been a healthy, positive culture that produces tremendous results for our clients. Following our values ensures that we are made of the right people who have the right attitude to help our clients solve their technology problems.
So take a look at the values to your right -- if they resonate with you like they do with us, we can say with great confidence that we will be a great fit as a partner for your company.
We give honest advice, own our mistakes, and trust each other; every time, all the time
We don't give up until the job is done right
We find creative solutions to complicated challenges
We support our clients and each other, with positivity, to ensure we all succeed

As one of Chicago's Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in 2017, we're serious about fostering a culture of transparency and helpfulness.
Working at Switchfast isn't for everyone. We've found that the people who best thrive here have a few common traits:
We aren’t looking for IT professionals who just get the job done: we hire people who want to make a noticeable difference in their company while actively advancing their career.
Switchfast Technologies is a leading IT Managed Services Provider (MSP) serving the Greater Chicagoland and Midwest area. When we say our team is made up of the Best & Brightest, we aren’t just tooting our own horn: we’re a 2017 Best & Brightest Companies to Work For winner, the result of a company culture that prioritizes transparency and teamwork, and a supportive management team that encourages employees to share ideas and concerns.
I have been working at Switchfast Technologies part-time (More than a year)
- Really fantastic group of people who make up the team.
- Everyone is helpful - even in the midst of their own work responsibilities. Have found that the team around me (leadership, operations, finance, marketing and HR is committed to delivering high quality work while being helpful.
- Love that it's a process driven company - clear expectations and have been given the tools to succeed. And, there's a strong culture of improvement and learning from past work efforts.
- Leadership is caring and open to questions as well as willing to collaborate on the best way to approach a challenge.
- Found SF to be flexible with work/life balance while keeping performance expectations high. Challenges are met with a "can do" attitude. Creative problem solving is rewarded.
- The team is smart and helpful. Positive environment.
- Lots of company sponsored lunches, snacks, treats, breakfasts (where the leadership team cooks for the company) and beverages - nice way to acknowledge appreciation of the team.
Office is quiet - very focused open space environment. Not specifically a "con" just something to note.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Switchfast Technologies (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.
Casual but also there is a test to take (be prepared). There are a lot of questions that are very technical so if you talk the talk you must walk the walk.
