    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

    Pros

    Cons

    Crooks, take a large % of income in first 2 years. Rubbish Account Managers and are cynical enough to release you with no cause just before 2 year point if it serves their best interest. Dont go there.

    Advice to Management

    Get some moral backbone.

      I worked at FDM Group full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Easy way into an IT role

      Cons

      Mostly everything, from no pay for 6 months of training, 90 days to get a client or it's all a waste, when you get a client your actual 2 years start, you get the bare minimum of pay for the role, regardless of experience, location or what you are doing for FDMs image. You are sent out and never contacted unless it regards their pockets, and after two years is up you are finely free

      Advice to Management

      pay more attention to those bringing in the clients

      I worked at FDM Group full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      There are no pros for working here, if your a Grad, expect to be exploited, if your ex forces expect to be smarmed and given false promises to be taken away when they lie and fail to find you employment in the Geoflex agreed at interview.

      Cons

      Clients unavailable in North East, so if you wish to be employed in the North East look for yourself and don't join this company . This company thrives on indentured servitude.

      Advice to Management

      Dont lie to potential employees about your sales team ability to get fruitful employment in an area (North East) if you clearly cannot. Treat your staff better, be more honest and actually send out CVs to the clients. Dont oversell to the clients, so that you can cream off the top of the salary the client pays.
