      I have been working at Fast Enterprises full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      During my almost year with FAST I have had the opportunity to learn and grow more than I could ever think. Every lead I have had the opportunity to work under has given me the space to explore my interests and pushes me to succeed. There is a culture of community at FAST and everybody is willing to come together to produce results.

      Cons

      - I think one of the biggest cons is the uncertainty of where and when you will be re-located. Especially for the training coordinator position, since we are usually only on active rollout sites, we move around a lot and there is even more uncertainty. - Also as a training coordinator, it seems like you are either extremely busy or extremely slow. There is not really a middle option where there are constantly things...

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

      Pros

      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...

      Cons

      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.

      Advice to Management

      Overtime is infrequent unless it's an active roll-out site. Consider the culture that is being created during these times. Sometimes, family-oriented employees can feel very overwhelmed and have to make some difficult choices. Even if you support family-work balance in employees, make sure that message is clear to others as well.

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits. Daily work consists of a wide range of problem solving that varies from day to day. Great company culture that focuses on solving issues rather than finding blame. I personally love the flat organization and the faster development timelines which leads to less "red tape" and less analysis paralysis. Virtually all coworkers are very competent and have good attitudes. Good efforts for charities and...

      Cons

      Code leans towards "fast and dirty". Capacity for furthering/continuing education is limited to literally <4 hours during the annual meeting once per year.

      I have been working at Fast Enterprises full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      There are A TON of pros to this company, and I think that even some of the Cons I may have can be viewed as Pros. 1. They take care of their people and appreciate the work we do. The partners, directors, associate partners, everyone. They appreciate what all of us with the company do and how hard we all work to get our jobs done. I think it is rare to find such a supportive and appreciative company where that mentality...

      Cons

      These cons, depending on how you look at them, can also be pros. Some of them are also very understandable given the nature of the work... 1. You work a lot. If you are looking for a 9-5 that will give you every weekend off, it may be best to look elsewhere. Though that may happen at times, you will have other weeks where you are super swamped. Given your job will be very project based, if this variance in work...

      Advice to Management

      Management does a great job. The partners are great and they work hard to make sure FAST is successful. They should be very proud of what they have made and where the company is now.

      Pros

      Your work is appreciated, the working environment has been fun yet professional, and you're compensated fairly.

      Cons

      The company has grown tremendously over the past decade, making it harder for new employees to stand out in the crowd.

      Advice to Management

      Consider PTO rather than separate sick time and vacation time. I'm not bothered by the current method, but I think employees would appreciate this flexibility.

      Pros

      As an employee you are taken care of. In my experience management has gone above and beyond to organize events and team activities to keep morale high.

      Cons

      Work load seem to be severely unbalanced at times and management doesnt seem to do much to even things out. Each project seems to be split into several sub-teams, and if you are assigned to a particular team. If you are assigned to a team that has a much higher demand than the others, be prepared to watch your fellow coworkers come and go for core business hours while you are working early morning hours and later into...

      Advice to Management

      Recognize when a small proportion of employees have a significant portion of the work load and try to balance everything out.

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

      Pros

      They hire great people, so the atmosphere that you work in is a lot of fun! You are encouraged to hang out with people that you work with, so they provide many events and activities where we get to know each other better. The work is super rewarding, because you get to see first hand the impact you're making to make people's day to day jobs easier.

      Cons

      My biggest con for this company is that there doesn't seem to be much accountability with toxic employees that have been working here a long time. There isn't much in the way of building up people to be better leaders and better mangers, it seems like people are just expected to have those skills which they often don't. It then ends up creating toxic work places that no one knows how to correctly address it.

      Advice to Management

      Be straightforward and give honest feedback! No one can change if they are never confronted with their shortcomings. In most other areas, you guys are doing great!

      Pros

      The partners at FAST are incredibly intelligent, amazing public speakers and communicators, and the best role models an employee could ask for in their leadership team. As FAST continues to grow, they continually initiate changes to make our software and our culture the best in the industry. What I love most about the company is that FAST truly cares about delivering the best software to support government agency effectiveness...

      Cons

      Due to the young age of the company, not every benefit/process is completely developed. However, that's the beauty of a young company is that FAST is always looking for ways to continue to improve. They aren't stuck in their ways and bureaucratic like very large organizations. I'm not a technical employee, but I think the biggest complaint is that the roles are not 100% technical. However, that is why we hire Implementation...
