Featured Review

Current Employee - Business Analyst

I have been working at FDM Group full-time

Pros

- Prestigious clients - Intensive training - Clients from variety of industries - Great trainers with a lot of experience

Cons

- Business needs are sometimes put before the consultant's - The business model does not fit consultants who have been with FDM longer than 3 years

Current Employee - Product Engineer

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

Pros

Most of the staff are genuine please to work with. Delievery managers are generally great people to work under as most encourage good working practises, personal development and support their teams.

Cons

Development side of the business is segregated to the rest of the business. Whilst dev teams implement agile like practises, pressure from sales and senior management can be counter intutive.... Common to deal with negative / skepitcal individuals which can be infectious, like in many organisations.

Advice to Management

Continue to improve flow of communication. More transparency in decisions.
