    Pros

    Secil is dope. Jed has his moments.

    Maybe Jed could learn a modicum of humility. Kind of obnoxious to deal with.

    I have been working at FastPay full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Growing company but still nimble. Senior leaders at the company are pretty good at making themselves accessible to people at all levels of the organization. Strong and engaging culture with many company sponsored events, catered lunches, celebrations etc. Recently invested in a great new workspace for MA based team which has been a huge upgrade. There is opportunity to move up within the company through strong performance. High performers seem to stick with the company for a long time. Benefits are strong: 100% employer paid health/dental/vision. 401k matching, snacks and beverages available and frequent catered lunches and events

    Cons

    Sometimes appear to overvalue potential talent while being slow to adequately reward loyal high achievers

    Advice to Management

    Hire more developers. There's no shortage of innovative, game-changing ideas being discussed about the future of the company, hire the resources needed to bring them to life!

    Pros

    I have been working for FastPay since we were acquired by them in 2017, I had never been through a merger or acquisition and didn't know quite what to expect even though all the talk at the time was very positive. I am happy to say that the whole experience of becoming part of the team has been excellent. The leadership, benefits, and culture are all individually commendable, but put together they make FastPay a truly excellent place to work.

    Pros

    FastPay is an amazing place to work. They heavily invest in the culture of the company. We have unlimited vacation time, routine catered lunches, and we have fun with various team building events. FastPay also has an emphasis on collaboration. Management encourages employees be innovators and values input. In addition, FastPay is growing quickly, giving many employees advancement opportunities within the company. Overall, FastPay is a great place to work. If you are a hard worker who loves to have fun, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    45 hour+ work week, but lunches are an hour long each day so it offsets.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in continuing education. Tuition reimbursement programs for employees.

    I worked at FastPay full-time

    Pros

    Nice and friendly people around, from senior managers to regular employees. Giving a 3 just because of the nice people all across the company. Otherwise, the experience deserved no more than a 2.

    Cons

    - Bad experience to have a manager with limited social skills who is experiencing his/her first job and never had the opportunity to work under a manager in the same professional field. That might constitute to why a manager doesn't "get it" how annoying his/her behavior gets sometimes. - No outlook for promotion.
