    Je travaille chez FDM Group à temps plein depuis moins d'un an

    Avantages

    I'd been looking for a role for 5 years, and not succeeded. FDM recognised my potential and took me through their intensive 7 week "Back to Business" programme in Glasgow, which gave really useful training, confidence building, and repeated interview practice. At the end of the seven weeks I had a successful interview, and two weeks later I'm in a role I enjoy with a great client. I wish I'd found FDM years ago.

    Inconvénients

    Pay and benefits aren't the best, but I expect I'll probably transition to a permanent role with the client after 2 years, so only a minor issue for me

    Conseils à la direction

    Avantages

    Excellent modular training delivered by knowledgable training staff in a modern office environment. Gaining industry recognised project management qualifications & certification

    Inconvénients

    Not many other than perhaps: No placement or job guarantees (but you need to understand the business model and accept the rules)

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep supporting and encouraging the valuable source of hugely experienced potential PMs from across the Armed Forces Family.

    Avantages

    Foot in the door route for many leaving the Military. Able to train and certify and in some excellent areas.

    Inconvénients

    Flexibility of locations but also the unpaid during the first 6 weeks is not always welcomed and nor is a further 6 weeks after training if no placement is found. However this is briefed and is an individual risk.

    Conseils à la direction

    Consider a basic payment during training or between weeks 6-12 in order to ensure staff do no go 12 full weeks unpaid. Even £200 per week would be helpful.

    This is an excellent program. The FDM business model is fantastic. It's fair. They train you and mentor you for several weeks and in return you work for a modest salary for 2 years. They are open and honest about this throughout. There are three streams, Graduates, Ex-Forces are Getting Back to Business. You get to meet really interesting people from different walks of life. It's inspirational. FDM takes people who...

    Inconvénients

    Be prepared to work hard. No work life balance during training you will have to put the hours in. Interviews will mean you may be pulled out of course making it hard to focus. The IT system configuration could be more user friendly given its an IT consultancy could be more slick to match the fancy office. The expenses process would be better replaced with a flat weekly bursary saving on administrative overhead. You may...

    Conseils à la direction

    At times I felt that some of the trainers were not clear on the difference of their target audience. For instance the comment "I'm happy for you to leave early for revision time as long as you clear it with the program manager." was said by a couple of the trainers. This felt a little juvenile as we are grown responsible adults. To be fair the program manager never questioned our schedule at this micro level. Thank goodness....

    Avantages

    An excellent place to gain entry into an otherwise prohibitive sector of the financial industry. I came from an Economics background academically with a decent amount of professional non-finance experience, and found it hard to get an interview, let alone get a position. After a few short months of training, gaining skills and getting certifications (all paid for by FDM), I'm employed with one of the largest investment...

    Inconvénients

    Some of the classes can be a bit slow depending on what your level of experience is with the subject, but reiteration and practice only make you more familiar. The schedule is rough for some, especially commuting, but it's worth it.

    Conseils à la direction

    Buy more cafeteria space at the Wall St. address! I can only see the volume of the business increasing.

    Avantages

    You get placed at great clients in roles that would not be possible if you were to apply through the standard process. Even though the pay is not great, after the two years it is likely that you will be made permanent at the client and salary rises significantly. You also have some really good account managers and trainers who genuinely want you to succeed.

    Inconvénients

    The pay is not great and some of the account managers will try and shoehorn you into a role that isn't the best fit.

    Conseils à la direction

    Not really advise but just make sure that the right people are being put forward for the most relevant roles.

    Avantages

    FDM provides training for fresh graduate that includes basic technical skills and financial knowledge. Trainees without technical background can learn technical knowledge and work in IT industry. Also, most of the trainees are fresh graduate so trainees can expand their network and meet new friends from different countries and universities. The trainers are kind and helpful to answer trainees' questions. The clients...

    Dérouler

    Inconvénients

    The training course is very intensive. Trainees need to learn new knowledge and have assessment every week so trainees can just remember all the things but not actually learn it. As the teaching materials are made by UK staffs so the content may not be useful in HK. Also, even though trainees are having training, the account managers will push trainees to have interview with clients. They always ask trainees be proactive,...

    Dérouler

    Conseils à la direction

    The communication between managements are not clear. Trainees usually receive different version of information from trainers and account managers.

    Avantages

    The only pro to FDM is if you HAVE NO OPTIONS AT ALL, I am talking like you have had no job for 6 months+ or are incapable of speaking English then use them. That's not a pro. Then it becomes a dire relationship where you have to accept their terrible terms.

    Inconvénients

    FDM is a company who takes advantage of you by creating a system of modern day IT indentured servitude. -It's a two year contract where you are underpaid drastically. You will make about 32K after taxes. Most of these jobs are 80K+ a year positions and FDM only offers you 43k your first year. Do the math. Go to a recruiter instead. -The clients are not that great. Yes they are well known banks. BUT, you are not...
