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

    Pros

    Paid overtime is a huge plus. Honestly wouldn’t be worth it without that perk. When Covid isn’t happening the team building activities and monthly company happy hours are also a huge plus and really boost morale. Healthcare/dental/vision is also phenomenal. People are great, very welcoming and tight knit. Often hang out together outside of work.

    Cons

    Pay adjustments are not very transparent. No clear definitions of what makes a good employee or what the company values most. Seems to pick leads based solely off of seniority and not ability or aptitude.

    I worked at Fast Enterprises part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great starting salary, overtime opportunities, lots of extras to look forward to.

    Cons

    Management varies greatly from site to site. There needs to be a better training program for individuals placed in management positions. Relocation can be a con if you don't want to relocate every year or two.

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

    Pros

    Pays great, coworkers are nice and helpful, work is interesting. Flat structure means bosses are more accessible and open about things

    Cons

    Hard to transfer skills out in general, harder for implementation consultants than tech team. Flat structure shows lack of vertical promotions, but they seem to do raises each year.

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

    Pros

    -Great pay and benefits for the work, especially considering most offices are in lower cost of living areas -Fast does a good job hiring smart and fun people to work with

    Cons

    -Not exciting work, spend a lot of time working in proprietary systems configuring existing software -Steep learning curve. Non-intuitive software design and naming standards. -Aging tech stack, you will do very little actual coding with the majority being done using proprietary data structures. -These cons will matter less to those not as interested in software development, but the work is still not fulfilling and consistent relocation may not be for everyone.

    I have been working at Fast Enterprises full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great benefits (awesome PTO), travel (you should expect to move ~ every 3 years and can experience many awesome places), each location has different problems and therefore keeps you interested, AMAZING COMPANY CULTURE!

    Cons

    Travel (moving can get old and is not for everyone, more of a pro for me), not always solving the most interesting problems, sometimes work long hours nearer deadlines
