          I have been working at FAST

          Pros

          Work is fun and challenging. Can discuss issues/ give feedback to senior management easily. Smart people. Creativity, innovation is encouraged. Opportunities to learn and grow.

          Cons

          Work hours are more and pay is less since it is a startup company. Things are not so organized like a big company, which sometimes causes frustration.

          Advice to Management

          Improving communication, organization and information sharing would definitely improve productivity and decrease frustrations. Formulating some rules/standards for all work flows would help.

          I worked at FAST full-time for 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          Old boys club, outdated culture, Mad Men in the 21st century (not in the fun way).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.

          Disapproves of CEO

          I worked at FAST full-time for 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.

          Former Employee - Business Analyst in Iselin, NJ
          Doesn't Recommend

          I worked at FAST full-time for 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.
