+ The opportunity to do meaningful work from day one, even as an intern + Internship includes housing, which is very nice and furnished, and you get great pay on top of that + Most people you work with are very outgoing and willing to answer any and all questions you may have + There are many random benefits that allow you to become closer with coworkers including team activities outside of work, and spontaneous paid lunches.
- As all other reviews mention, you should be prepared for relocation if you are going to accept an offer with FAST

Competitive pay Free events and paid-for conferences Diverse background of people to work with. What you do feels like it matters. Lots of community involvement activities provided. Benefits are fantastic. The job is definitely 'work smart, not hard' mantra. Tools are given to succeed! Most people that FAST hires are great people who act like dorks (which is amazing). Some people think we don't program, we still develop and code everyday! It's just not the only thing we do.
Obviously, the job revolves around that you have to be willing and wanting to move periodically. Some people tout that this is the best company to work with and that no other exists. While that it is not true, there are few companies that offer all of these benefits. Most jobs within the company, you work with/around State agencies. There is a lot of scrutiny in what you do and say around them.4

Fast works hard to ensure sites are a welcoming and positive environment. Team building events are held quite frequently and Fast hires great people to work with! There are always new and different challenges at work so you don't feel as though you're stuck in the same routine every day. Fast also provides a solid and reliable product that you can be proud of.
Relocation is a large part of the job criteria which can be a pro or con depending on your flexibility.

- Impactful: The work I do every day directly (and generally quickly) impacts the community I live in. - Challenging: Problems faced by government agencies are often unique and solving them with software configuration allows me to use my creativity, experience, and problem solving skills daily. - Great people: I love the people I work with and they teach me more and more every day!
- Work-Life Balance: It can be maintained (I have gotten pretty good at it!), but it takes a focused effort to do so. I suspect many demanding jobs are the same way. - Feedback Escalation: Trying to escalate feedback or issues up the chain of command can be challenging, due to our decentralized nature I believe.

The company treats you like a person, with everyone from your peers to partners taking time to get to know you. There are some people who don't, but those exist everywhere so not a surprise. But the overwhelming majority of Fasties want to be your friend and help you succeed. Also FAST is also helping government improve very legacy processes and replace legacy systems. This is a good endeavor and being involved in this process is a great feeling as you feel part of actual positive change happening in the government. FAST has been involving their family messaging and I feel like the company really does care about my kids and spouse more so then they did in the past. What do I mean by this is that in the past drink options at FAST sponsored events included pretty much only alcohol, but that is no longer the case. (Great improvement) This has been awesome as my family is invited to various events and even if I drink, it keeps it more moderated. Fasties will even invite by family to other activities (non-FAST) as well. Most benefits are great. Pay, Insurance, and sick time are great. Pay is great for new hires and pay raises are impressive. Insurance is covered for pretty much everything and the plan is great. Sick time is also pretty high. Overall I am happy with the culture and work I do. Impressed with the direction and hope it keeps moving forward.
This probably sounds like a broken record to management, but the retirement plan is ... ehhhh. Basically, you just get a % of your salary (determined year to year) shared in your retirement account depending on the profit made by the organization. They say they do this instead of matching as everyone gets some retirement amount put away, instead of those who don’t think about it not putting anything away. I don't feel this is accurate but won't speculate as to why I think this is done. What it means is that in spite of hiring many young hires, they don’t educate them about the importance of investing in their retirement and matching up to a % on what they put away. Instead FAST drops a small amount into the retirement account each year that will not allow their employees to retire. The concept of matching helps encourages people to think of retirement and FAST is doing a disservice with their current approach. Companies that match usually result in more in retirement. Additionally, company matches in retirement do not hit the imposed limit on how much can be put into retirement. This is really important for both newer and older hires. As the management structure in FAST starts to gain some verticality, FAST needs to spend some time training leadership. Most individuals in management are awesome and FAST has done a good job of elevating these people. But there are directors, PMs, and leads that seem to have been elevated that still need some training. They may micromanage, while saying they don’t want to. Or they have odd perspectives of what is good or excellent behavior. This happens everywhere, so it isn’t a one off on FAST, but just something they need to be aware of and think ahead. Also hiring more people doesn’t always alleviate a high workload. If enough properly trained people are not brought on ahead of time then new people just increases the workload. Once again besides the retirement, the negatives are rather minimal but things to be aware of.1

Top of the industry pay and benefits. Job can be challenging but it is very rewarding and someone is always there to help you out with something. The people who work for FAST are by and large a lot of fun and very smart. The company is run by family oriented partners who are understanding when it comes to family obligations. The job is honestly as good as it gets.
You will be expected to move.

One of the things I love about working for Fast Enterprises is the culture. Your coworkers become your friends and the people at FAST is truly why it's a great place to work.
There's not a lot of room to move up and grow within the company since it's a flat organization structure.

Working with a great group of people who are efficient and dedicated to working hard. The company is very generous to their employees and the culture of the company as a whole is hard to beat.
Lots of hard work and long hours. You will never be bored working at Fast.1

FAST is a great company and has created an awesome community of people to both work and hang out with. If i had to rank what the best things about the company are I would probably say: 1. Compensation and benefits are top notch. 2. The people are amazing. 3. The travel opportunities are incredible.
Its definitely a pro and a con but there is no permanence in the life of an IC since you will probably move every other year or so. Which makes life exciting but also can be tiring. But hey they tell you that before you sign up.1

You'll learn and accomplish a lot very quickly. You'll meet very smart and talented people and they'll be your friends for life. You won't be wasting time making people coffee...right from the start, you'll be working on real projects that will make a difference. High pay and great benefits.
You'll likely have to move far away...if that's a con for you.5
