Review + Slight Venting: It Gets Old Quick - Implementation Consultant Fast Enterprises Employee Review

      Pros

      Amazing early career pay, great relocation team, paid overtime, incredible people, opportunity to grow soft skills, and great benefits. There’s also an annual meeting that they spend too much money on. Las Vegas was fun, but I would’ve lived without it. Vegas obviously didn’t keep me here. This job is incredible for getting your feet in the door of the software development space. I can’t argue that, and anyone can probably find pleasure in the first 3 years or so. More so if you’re fresh out of college (aka most of their vict—I mean target prospects).

      Cons

      No transferable skills/knowledge gained after about 2 years. They move you just to move you sometimes. To avoid it, you have to give up raises for years. High overtime during rollouts. It’s rare to find dumb people with seniority, but the ones that are there have a free spot since it’s more difficult to find someone else to teach their complex product to. Diversity also sucks. There is one person that comes to mind, but nobody else puts effort into this area. I imagine that person is on their way out soon too.

          Pros

          Decent culture on site (HOWEVER, I have heard this varies wildly depending on team). Good pay and benefits, intangibles. Met some genuinely talented and interesting people with my time at FAST. Moving to a project location is expected and is a benefit at first.

          Cons

          Development center culture is not good. One of the main reasons I left is because I saw what my future would look like as a 8+ year employee and realized that I would be an alcoholic, cynic, or both. There's a bitterness that comes with tenure at FAST and it breeds discontent and bad attitudes across the company. The software product is very mature and there does not appear to be much interest in exploring modern technologies (e.g. open source, cloud native, modern web development, containerization). Because of this, career growth is a big problem; there is little incentive to grow your engineering skills. Their development environment is very siloed by proprietary technologies. Advice for out-of-college hires: you will need to stay current on your skills outside of work if you want a career elsewhere later.

        Was told by an company I was interviewing with I would hear back from them the first week of December. The last time we spoke was before Thanksgiving, as I'm trying to respect their decision-making process. Should I reach out again now that we're closer to the date?

        When negotiating salary over the phone, can you mention that you know what the salary is for the position you're applying for? E.g. I know people at the company I'm interviewing for in the exact level that I would be in who are making about 15k more than what I am expecting to be offered. Can I say, "I know Managers at this firm make xyz so I would like to be close to that number"

        This is a Post-Intervew question, and I realize this is as individual as getting a haircut or fixing a cup of coffee. I had an interview with a medical office Wensday and I think it went pretty well. No, big hiccups on my end aside from getting tougne tied for a minute. I felt as though I had a good vibe with the interviewer. How do you after action an interview? (The reason I'm asking is I've been job hunting for near on 3 years now and I'm pretty frustrated with the situation.)
