    FD expenses package is great;)

    £20-25 a day for food ONLY when not at your home base. Accomodation is paid for, 50% of it is decent, 25% is poor, 25% is quite frankly uninhabitable. Travel paid for.

    Best thing was the accommodation and expenses while working on client site

    On site, you can expense all food and travel, which really adds up. However, everything else is basic statuatory pay, sick/paternity/maternity. They offer the minimum or very close to the minimum by law that they can, for pensions for example. Don't be fooled by the how much they say they offer. The health insurance is the lowest band so you get very little from it. Performance bonuses are not merit based so no matter how hard you work you won't get more. FD say they offer job training, but they actually just make you do 30 tests in your own time which are incredibly time consuming even though everyone has a cheat sheet of the answers that management pretend not to know about. On the technical side of the company there is next to no professional development opportunities, and if you ask to attend something external, management might allow you as long as you work extra hours to make up for the "time lost", which is ridiculous.

    Best: Cover rent, bills, food, transport and it's the only real reason most staff stay with the company Worst: Constant issues with the benefits package due to how disorganised the HR department are.
