    I have been working at FDM Group full-time

    Pros

    Get placed with big name companies that you would not otherwise a chance, with Industry experience Professional Training Job-like experience prior to being placed Knowledgeable Trainers Staff that genuinely cares Amazing CEO If you end up training in Austin, you lucked out. I don't know about the other locations, but I know the people out of this office and they are amazing.

    Cons

    Low pay for high cost of living areas Needs a higher re-location allowance for those with families Not the best health care plan

    Advice to Management

    If we don't plan to increase wages for those working in high-cost of living areas, we could, at least, offer a higher re-location allowance.

Projects can be challenging but are a good benchmark of your knowledge and are graded in a way that if you understand the most important concepts you won't have a problem passing. Great first employer if you are right out of school. Paid training.
