    I have been working at Fast Enterprises full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Fast, even at the 1000+ size it is, still cares deeply about each and every employee. Their benefits, even the way they help people move, the way they bring individuals AND their spouses/families into the culture, it super impressive and I love that about Fast. The work we do is serious in terms of being important work - our clients are generally very positive to work with and welcoming, so it is a pleasant place to...

    Cons

    Any con I can think of is also a pro depending on how you look at it. Occasional relocation is also an opportunity to experience a new place and city. Occasional overtime is also an opportunity to make $.

    Advice to Management

    Employees love the partner interaction - everyone enjoys having a partner on their project or visiting their project. Keep that up!!

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

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, responsive management, good coworkers and happy clients. There's a lot of camaraderie across the company and it is fostered with get togethers and lots of freedom to host events for morale.

    Cons

    Rapid growth has revealed some policy gaps; few areas to move into for other roles; partner structure can have drawbacks but also allows freedom from high amounts of bureaucracy.

    Employees are treated very well; a few improvements could really make this the best company

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

    Pros

    - Competitive compensation (especially if you're a fresh graduate with little work experience, the starting pay is almost unbeatable) - Regular raises - Paid for every hour you work, so ability to increase your income by working overtime - Amazing, generous health benefits - Great fringe benefits: team building and company events, snacks, reimbursements, annual meetings, general spoiling of employees - Generally...

    Cons

    - Company policy is no remote work, which feels pretty out dated, limits the talent pool, and could cause us to lose valuable talent. - Company is very young: this is a pro and a con. Fresh perspectives, but policies and management has to cater to the youngest common denominator which can feel micromanage-y and unnecessary. - Lack of tools. No effective/enterprise level content management system or online help system....

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your staff and listen for input, particularly from those in positions that haven't been fully fleshed out yet. Consider modernizing: remote work is a huge benefit for both company and employee, and it would be so helpful to use outside tools to improve the quality and efficiency of our work (in particular, content management systems and proposal/response repositories.

    I worked at Fast Enterprises full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    There is a completely different culture at the Dev Center compared to other projects. If you're not an IC, there is little room to grow and develop. Majority of the employees in some projects have been there for a long time and it can seem cliquish to say the least.

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

    Pros

    FAST has some modern benefits befitting of a software company, fun parties, events, annual employee conferences, and a ping pong table! Their healthcare benefits are awesome.

    Cons

    If you are seeking a creative position, move along. The company is light years behind more modern software companies in terms of leave, flexible work arrangements, work from home, professional development and general work-life balance. The company also "encourages" positive reviews and is very focused on maintaining a positive rating here on Glassdoor.

    Advice to Management

    Take a moment to step out and see how other software companies are doing it. You are halfway there. Invest in your employees self and professional development. Take a moment to meet those on your staff, not just those in your clique.

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

    Pros

    Great healthcare, decent pay, and fun people to work with. Paid health insurance Paid overtime Fun work get togethers and events outside of work.

    Cons

    no working from home, expected to spend full 40 hours in office, and overtime can be done outside of office. No 401k Matching, no pension, no standardized pay raise system or promotions. Flat organization means no where to move up. Business lacks focus on IT Operations and Security, more focused on developers and techs.

    Advice to Management

    Allow working from home(maybe we are sick but can still work, but we don't want to bring the flu to the office but feel forced to use a sick day for your teams sake), more focus on IT Operations/SecOps with a different set of rules/policies from rest of the company. I personally dont think IT Operations can be considered a flat organization. We need structured positions and a path to follow. For example, Help...

    Pros

    - Amazing group of people to work with - Best front desk team, very friendly - Good experience working with new technologies

    Cons

    - No remote work options - No access to modern ticketing systems or content management solutions - No technical certificate reimbursement or educational funding - No 401k matching

    Advice to Management

    If you work for Fast Enterprises as an IC or Tech Team member, this company is a solid 4.5/5 stars. This review is based solely on the perspective for those who work in Fast Hosting Services or the Security team. The main issue is that structurally FAST has been a very flat organization. The information technology teams need some structure. Traditional IT shops need different roles. We also do not have the basic...

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

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Strong culture of being supportive, collaborating, and giving back to the community. Interesting work and opportunities to try different types of projects at different locations.

    Cons

    Mid to high amount of mandatory or non-mandatory-yet-expected overtime. Fine for young, single professionals, but demanding for those with families. Not introvert-friendly, most rewards for dedication geared around the opportunity to spend even more time at non-work company events.
