    Conseils à la direction

    If you work for Fast Enterprises as an IC or Tech Team member, this company is a solid 4.5/5 stars. This review is based solely on the perspective for those who work in Fast Hosting Services or the Security team.

    The main issue is that structurally FAST has been a very flat organization. The information technology teams need some structure. Traditional IT shops need different roles.

    We also do not have the basic tools to do our job. One would expect a modern ticketing solution and content management system. For example, the in-house content management solution does not even allow for opening documents in a web browser. You have to download each document to view it. This makes managing knowledge base articles virtually impossible. Without a ticketing system, operationally it is hard to manage several client interactions and tasks. The FAST motto is to build everything in-house but this is not feasible without dedicated programmers working for Fast Hosting Services.

    My overall recommendation is to let this side of the business run differently from Fast Enterprises. This would allow our teams to be more efficient and happier with our jobs. Our teams work hard and take pride in providing an excellent service to our customers.

    Avantages

    Great pay and benefits.
    Strong culture of being supportive, collaborating, and giving back to the community.
    Interesting work and opportunities to try different types of projects at different locations.

    Inconvénients

    Mid to high amount of mandatory or non-mandatory-yet-expected overtime. Fine for young, single professionals, but demanding for those with families.
    Not introvert-friendly, most rewards for dedication geared around the opportunity to spend even more time at non-work company events.

    Je travaille chez Fast Enterprises à plein temps (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    Great starting pay - My offer was for $80,000 as an out-of-college Implementation Consultant.

    Outstanding Benefits - The company pays for your monthly premiums and virtually all health care. They don't want you to have to worry about you or your family's health.

    Competitive PTO - You accrue 10 vacation and 10 sick days each year, along with 10 government holidays.

    Relocation - Also in the cons section. You get to see different parts of the country, and occasionally the world. FAST pays for the majority of your moving costs, though not all. Constant change makes it easier to not get totally bored of the job.

    Inconvénients

    Flat Organization - Very little room for growth. No "ladder" to climb. Of the 1400+ employees, I would guess 1000 or so are Implementation Consultants.

    Basic Technical Experience - As an Implementation Consultant, you basically use FAST's COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) software, and limited T-SQL and VB.NET. You are not developing software unless you work at HQ in Denver, and you are just configuring the pre-developed software to fit the needs of the specific government entity you are working at. If you want to get software development experience to grow to potentially move jobs in 2-5 years, this is probably not the job for you.

    Relocation - Not a con to all, but only being at a site for 1-4 years before being required to move means most people don't buy homes, meaning they rent for the entirety of their career at FAST, and they don't get to live where they typically desire.

    401k - While profit sharing exists, I would much rather see FAST drop profit sharing and add 401k matching. I would rather benefit greater from my contributions to my 401k than benefit less with profit sharing.

    FAST truly cares for it's employees. The partners spend a lot of time getting to know each one of their employees and ensuring they are happy at their job. FAST also has a great working environment so you don't constantly feel like you are competing against other employees. Great benefits and pay.

    Inconvénients

    There are times when you will be required to work overtime. However FAST makes that clear from the beginning and they also pay overtime which is nice. They definitely expect a lot from their employees, however they take great care of you.

    Avantages

    Working for FAST straight out of college has been an absolute treat. It doesn't really get better in terms of the people you work with, pay, benefits, etc. I've enjoyed my time here and can see myself staying for a few more years to really absorb everything there is to absorb.

    There are so many good things to say about the company, many of which have been elaborated on in numerous reviews. Fast is a 5/5 company, but I feel obligated to be critical on the negatives just to bring them to the attention of management.

    Some notable pros from my perspective are:

    - Young tech culture
    - Work ethic is an actual thing, good/hard work is rewarded
    - On a large scale, the work you do is meaningful and applicable to every day life
    - Benefits are fantastic
    - Pay is fantastic
    - Travel opportunities abound, and in general, all moving-related expenses are covered

    Inconvénients

    Some notable cons from my perspective (and these are by no means crippling cons) are:

    - Many events involve a considerable amount of drinking. Shy away from this a little bit. I understand that people have the "option" to not drink, but that can feel awkward when drinking has such a strong presence at many of the events. It's not fun to be one of the only sober-ish people, especially at a work event.

    - No 401k matching, but profit sharing instead. Stop doing this, please! I get that all employees benefit from this whether they choose to put money into retirement or not, but the amount of profit sharing is marginal and is nothing compared to a 3%, 4%, or 5% match. Reward those who actually want to contribute to retirement rather than stifle their progress.

    - Lack of documentation. For the sake of your developers, trainers, and basically everyone on active implementations... Please improve your efforts to document materials and invest more time and energy into this. The payoff would be worth it as new employees would learn much faster. Of course, things are very fluid and dynamic, but that is no excuse to not have well-documented components and processes that are used all throughout company applications.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Start 401k matching and do away with the profit sharing. This is the biggest financial con of the company by miles and miles and it hurts all employees trying to contribute to their retirement.

    - Start documenting your materials regularly, and update that documentation as processes change. It is an investment well worth the time and money.

    - Have sites plan events that are slightly more inclusive to those who are not casual drinkers.
