    Pros

    - The most ambitious growth minded company I have ever worked for, there is a real buzz around the office - Supportive staff across all departments I have come across, everyone wants you to succeed - CEO / COO very down to earth visit throughout the year, are completely invested in ensuring the company succeeds - Great opportunity to move career forward very quickly

    Cons

    - Very few to note due to company in growth phase at times it can be hectic, however this does make it exciting

    Advice to Management

    - Keep on supporting all levels of staff and taking on the feedback from consultants as well as all internal facing staff

    Pros

    Great development for career. Looks for potential in people, not experience. Understanding of personal situation IF YOU COMMUNICATE!! They aren't mind readers but mentors and HR are fantastic. Not the greatest salary packages but sets you up to be on a high salary after a couple of years. Invaluable experience handling people, and tech.

    Cons

    Bad coffee on -site in London Head office.

    Advice to Management

    Get new coffee

      I have been working at FDM Group full-time

      Pros

      It’s now been 6 months since I started my journey with FDM. I took part in the BA/PMO Graduate Programme in Birmingham's FDM Academy. The training itself has its pro and cons. It is very demanding and challenging and it requires constant efforts because in the end of each week you have multiple assessments. The way the different modules were structured was not ideal but the trainers and the account managers were very...

      Cons

      The amount of money that you owe FDM in case your contact is terminated before the 2 years is heavily overpriced.

      Advice to Management

      Add more courses that include external certifications

      Pros

      * Friendly colleague and staff * Decent training * Free coffee! * The Development stream was an excellent way to get your 'foot inside the door' both for newly graduates and for career changers.

      Cons

      * Not a con as such but applicants need to keep in mind that it does not offer a 100% sure Guarantee of job placement! FDM trains you and gets you interview with high calibre potential employers so your success will depend on your own performance during training and during the interviews. * Thin "walls" so it can get quite noisy * Equipment / some facilities could be better or needs updating ; e.g. make it easier...
