    I have been working at Fast Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fully paid healthcare benefits, paid vacation, paid sick time, 401k, yearly bonuses (everybody gets one but hard work will only increase the size), a more than competitive salary (yes its true, the overtime is paid!) and the chance to travel and see new things that you may have never had the opportunity to do. Every project actively has there hands in the community and are constantly looking for ways to help out in many different ways. You will have the opportunity to work with some the smartest and self driven people you will ever meet that will do anything to help you succeed. We are a company with a global presence and our partners/owners make it a point to see, speak and get to know everybody across all our sites (your truly not just a number here). I have worked for other companies and done different things but I have never worked for a company like this. I can honestly say this place constantly blows my mind (most the time I have to pinch myself to make sure this is real) and has myself and my family grateful that we are part of one the greatest companies in the world. From my family to you, Thank you FAST!

    Cons

    Sometimes you work a fair bit of overtime but its paid. Honestly your going to have to work overtime at just about any company or job you may take and I think you will find that the vast majority will not offer you a salary with paid overtime so I will leave it up to you if you think this is a con (its really not though). I have seen plenty of reviews that place the traveling as a con but if you want or enjoy seeing new things then its not really a con. I have a family of five and its never been a burden on us. Fast makes moving really easy (you wont even have to pick up a box or try to con your friends into helping you since they are always busy when its time to move) and it does not cost you a thing. For me these are not cons (more like opportunity) but they come up in reviews often so I wanted people to understand that its all in how you look at it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and we all recognize how above and beyond you go!

    I have been working at Fast Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Work hard play hard attitude and the work/life balance
    - Working with some incredible software
    - Outgoing coworkers
    - AGM
    - I'm not nose down in a computer 10 hours every day
    - Incredible insurance and other benefits
    - FAST Pause (1 consecutive month of paid leave)
    - Ability to travel, explore the world, and all of the cultures and subcultures both domestic and international
    - 401(k) (not matching)
    - Profit sharing
    - Compensated OT
    - Real family feel

    Cons

    There are occasionally consecutive weeks when you have to focus for an extended period of time on work and forget about your personal life, but that's part of having a job and being a good employee... so it's not really a con at all, especially considering we're compensated for the over time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! James, Martin, and Dennis are the best!

    I have been working at Fast Enterprises full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    High pay for the industry. OT paid at hourly equivalent of salary. Top tier health insurance. Yearly all company gathering. Young company. Majority of positions are client facing. Lots of happy hours/office events. Very generous cost of living wage increases for high cost areas. Excellent internship program.

    Cons

    Boring work. Only 20% of your time will be spent actually coding. Skills translate only to consulting jobs, not developement jobs. No 401k matching. Rollouts often turn into death marches the last few months. Did I mention the work is boring 90% of the time?

    Advice to Management

    Hire more dev center developers. Take shackles off good developers. Don't be as hard set on forcing people to use sometimes subpar core recommended implementations.

    Friendly people, always learning, always new twist, good compensation, you get to see the results of your actions, always changing

    Can have challenging clients, can work a lot, growth changes companies identity, always changing

    Advice to Management

    Almost everything is a balancing act because projects implement so much more, the tools have gotten better but the expectations are much higher
