    Pros

    FAST has always been seen as a leading provider of modern software solutions for insurers, and now has grown to the point that top tier insurers are doing business with us. Based on my experience, this shift will accelerate our growth, leading to many exciting opportunities in the firm. - FAST always looks within to find talented people for new projects, and is not afraid to give people positions that stretch their current...

    Cons

    The pace of activity and the expectations of employees can be hard to adjust to for new people who have been used to a highly organized/directed 9-5 work environment.

      Pros

      FAST offers a dynamic work environment where employees are provided an opportunity to grow and learn the latest and greatest technologies.

      Cons

      I've worked for similar companies in this space over the years and I see very little downside to FAST. One item would be a 401K match down the road.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the desire to succeed and your client first approach. This is what separates FAST from it's competitors.

      I have been working at FAST full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Some of the most enjoyable aspects of working at FAST have been the opportunities to take on meaningful work for real client projects almost immediately upon starting, and doing the majority of learning through taking on increasingly difficult assignments from those projects. It’s rewarding to interact with the clients and see the tangible impact your work has on that project, and as you gain expertise in the area in...

      Cons

      While it’s not necessarily negative, there is a certain level of time commitment and stress associated with taking on an array of responsibilities. This can be rewarding, both financially and in terms of your impact for the client, and beneficial in terms of your career advancement, but it’s not for everyone. Similarly, while it’s not necessarily a drawback, with all of the projects and activities which are going on,...

      I have been working at FAST full-time

      Pros

      A Fantastic company devoted to helping people learn and develop. They are willing to really bring you up to speed and are not looking for a "plug and play" style of employee. The benefits are fantastic and the annual AGM is worth working here on its own. There's a real focus on employee fit and talent over knowledge as they use a proprietary system that must be learned even by experienced programmers and developers.

      Cons

      The work is fairly specific to the Fast system and therefore can be of limited transferability

      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
