    I worked at FAST full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many learning opportunities, smart people, interesting work and tech, good client-facing experience.

    Cons

    Old boys club, outdated culture, Mad Men in the 21st century (not in the fun way).

    Advice to Management

    Modernize the culture. Advocate and look out for your employees. The same stuff that makes it fun for some makes it uncomfortable for others.

    I have been working at FAST full-time

    Pros

    he way FAST treats their employees is one of the main reasons I have stayed with FAST. The salary and benefits are impressive. Despite FAST growing in size over the years, it still has a small company feel. Paid overtime, encouraged to use vacation

    Cons

    Nothing as far as cons

    I worked at FAST full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Free Starbucks
    - Flat management style. All managers (both staffed and consultants) show competence and lack of ego.
    - Smart and committed co-workers. Everyone pulls their weight and are generally very helpful.

    Cons

    - The revolving door of senior management means objectives are always changing.
    - Nepotism is strong here. If you aren't friends/family or are a perfect culture match - look elsewhere for a promotion.
    - Culture is a bit stiff for a software company. Maybe due to the industry of insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Pizza once a week is unhealthy.

    I worked at FAST full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging, smart people, team-focused, lots of responsibility, fast-paced environment

    Cons

    Company tends to prefer the just-out -of-college crowd and other individual favorites, does not come through on promises for increases or bonuses, upper management shows little care for employees as individuals, long hours, skimpy individual and team recognition

    Advice to Management

    Deliver what was promised. Just as employees are expected to do so for clients.

    Cons

    -Biased career growth. The chances of climbing up the ladder is limited only to the those who are buddies with the management
    -Unrealistic expectations of learning the new system
    -Training program is comprehensive but almost useless while trying to apply it in a project
    -Transfer of knowledge is very limited. Only a few actually know how the system works
    -Even programmers/developers have a difficult time understanding how the system works
