    I have been working at Fast Enterprises full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent product, methodology, management team, benefits, projects, project staffing (finally projects with enough people to deliver) and people. Fast always delivers which is awesome. If you are fresh out of college, this is the company to work for.

    Cons

    If you are a consultant and used to the consultant world then be prepared for a flat organization where your manager is your project manager. Difficult to see your growth path because of the organization structure and review process.

    Advice to Management

    It seems that the review/performance process is a bit confusing since it is unclear how a project manager reports to partners.

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, meet awesome people and the company cares! Great culture, fun events, a lot of opportunities

    Cons

    Potentially some overtime, relocation (but that’s a pro sometimes), not knowing if moving is a possibility for apartments and things

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing! Provide more opportunities for mentorship and advancement! I love that you guys make sure to treat us like family

    "Generally Positive - Somewhat Limiting"

    I worked at Fast Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Fast provides lots of room to grow with flexibility in the skills acquired.
    "FASTies" are sociable and generally great teammates.
    If you are vocal about the opportunities that you want, management will generally help place you where you can excel.
    The Fast product is constantly changing and it is exciting to always be in the process of learning something new.

    Cons

    The work is somewhat limiting, unless you have long term plans to stay with the company.
    Fast contracts with state-level governments, so the project locations are not always ideal. You can also expect to move around quite a lot, which could be seen as a pro.

    Advice to Management

    Management should supplement the yearly review with more regular "reflection" type interviews to try and keep project managers up to date. Sometimes work lacks direction, especially for newer employees, and it's good to remind folks what types of opportunities are available.

    I have been working at Fast Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Fast for a while now and have found that even though we continue to grow, we continue to value many of the things that made Fast so great when we were a smaller company. Additionally, as we continue to grow, Fast continues to put additional resources toward more employee development to ensure that there continue to be opportunities for personal growth.

    Every time I get a chance to reflect on what Fast offers, I realize how great a company I've had the opportunity to work for.

    Cons

    There have definitely been some long nights, weekend work, and even early mornings where I've not wanted to be at work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep valuing your employees and providing additional opportunities for employee growth. Keep the feel of the company that I've come to enjoy more and more throughout the years.

    Pros

    The pay.... ummmm..... fun company events on occasion? Partners donate to charity. Nice co-workers for the most part! Yup thats about it.

    Cons

    Forget having a life outside of work. Moving around every couple of years is one thing but when management moves you to only have you go short term in a completely different location, you have zero control. I was told (after moving only a couple months prior), that i needed to go across the country short term for multiple months. So if you enjoy leaving your friends and family to live in a hotel for multiple months- this is for you! Also... forget about making any plans in advance. Youll be asked to go somewhere on a whim with little consideration into previously scheduled travel or plans.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider that there’s a chance that your employees have lives outside of work!
