    Great compensation. Fun building a company.

    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 abilities - Experienced employees are usually happy to help the new fast-learners grow in their understanding of the software offerings and insurance in general - Work environment is fast-paced and team-oriented, using Agile methodology - Employees are able to work on and try many different things - Open access to upper management

    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.

    Meaningful Work and Great Opportunities

    Oct 23, 2015 - Business Analyst in Edison, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    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 which you’re working, you’re encouraged to share that expertise with other employees and projects. While you’ll typically gain expertise in a specific area first, this does not mean you’ll be pigeon-holed into that responsibility forever. Given the variety of projects and activities going on, there are plenty of opportunities to work in different areas of the company or in different phases of a project’s life cycle, in turn broadening your skill set and allowing you to grow professionally. That level of activity, in conjunction with the size of the company, also provides many opportunities to interact with other employees, including more senior employees and executives, and learn from their expertise and their experience. Across the board, the staff is very intelligent, hard-working, and encouraging, and eager to help grow and develop younger or less experienced employees.

    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, there’s frequently a need to quickly pivot between priorities. That being the case, it’s not always certain what you’ll be working on the next week/next month/etc., which can keep things fresh and interesting for some, but again, is not for everyone.
