    Fast Switch pays about 70% of the cost of Medical coverage and we wish the cost was lower! Our insurance cost is lower than 75% of companies in the US. In addition, our coverage has some nice ... More

    I have been working at Fast Switch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible compensation packages with competitive rates; great relationships with clients; very, very good medical, dental and vision plan if you select it; contractor-centric approach to business; training budget; parking reimbursement; recruiters and client reps work very hard to keep you billing; responsive staff; great payroll department and SUPER FAST reimbursements.

    Cons

    They are always there for their consultants. I have not had any issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    We didn't do a good job for this consultant. Our goal is always to make a win/win placement that is good for our consultants and our client.

    Pros

    Very good company to work for when it comes to immigration related things. They provide excellent documents if u need to travel or stamping etc.

    Cons

    Very less opportunities to grow as consultant. PTO are very less and i got 10 days/year which equals my client holidays so i do save nothing on vacation.

    I have been working at Fast Switch full-time

    Pros

    Strong management team with knowledgeable sales staff and the strongest recruiting staff I have worked with. Scorecards with large accounts prove that Fast Switch is a consistent supplier year after year and consultants have many opportunities to move to after their first assignment. As costs are very well controlled in the company, we have been able to pay candidates on the upper end of their pay requests which has enhanced their happiness on their projects and increased our overall retention.

    Cons

    Wish I started here sooner!

    Pros

    They arrange parties/events which is not really necessary. All they need to do is bring transparency in the billing rate or pay the consultant fair share as he/she is the one adds value to the end product. I have experienced very sweet talk but that is absolutely unnecessary. Making sure people who adds value to end product gets fair chunk of rate is the most important think in the interest of client company and staffing company.

    Cons

    No growth in terms of bill rate, no transparency in the billing rate. If you are just interested in parties/events they organize & do not worry about billing rate(fair chunk of the rate you deserve) then its definitely good company.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the skillset/experience consultant brings into the project and offer him/her what he/she deserves. Parties/events is not really necessary

    Pros

    Decent hourly rate, although it's hard to know if you're being compensated fairly based on the bill rate.
    Somewhat interested in contractors welfare at the company they're placed.

    Cons

    No rate increase
    No idea what the bill rate is up front
    No idea what percentage of the bill rate is contractors cut

    Advice to Management

    Tell your contractors what their bill rate is with the company.
