    Avantages

    Little management, your career is in your hands and you can manage it yourself.
    Fast paced environment, projects and people change quickly, no chance to be bored.

    Inconvénients

    Less than 15% of FD employees are senior or above. Most likely you will be trained and mentored by other junior collegue with 6 months experience.
    Lazy coworkers are never ejected. You will have to do your work and theirs. HR will suggest you to "work smarter, not harder" in such cases.

    Conseils à la direction

    Make it easier for engineers to get resources when needed or at least make it possible to obtain it from other available sources.

    Avantages

    -Good travel Opportunities

    -Great social aspect
    -Good mix of people from all over the world of similar age
    -Expenses when on a project outside of Newry

    Inconvénients

    -When first months training is finished or in between projects you sit 'on the bench' and receive little updates regarding new projects.
    -Don't understand how some grad's get their first project over another when both are just finished university and have no prior experience.
    -HQ in Newry doesn't have good facilities for staff.

    Conseils à la direction

    -The bench room is very unproductive which needs addressing
    -HR/Mgt in general can be unorganized i.e. sending people to accommodation but it turns out its full or when a larger group of grads arrive not having enough desks and computers.
    -For a technology firm the equipment needs updating i.e. not having enough laptops and most of the laptops don't have Microsoft.

    Avantages

    To be very Honest this is a wonderful company that rewards hard work. Many people complain that they give bad roles, those are for those who are not willing to prove themselves and work hard, if you work hard, FD will be a great place to progress because you will be put on a wonderful role.

    Financial engineers/ consultants are expected to complete your PRMIA exams which is all paid by the firm. PRM is much tougher and technical compared to FRM administered by GARP, and you are surely hot cake if you can complete all 4 PRMIA exams and FD pays for your all 4 exams. Some others decide to write the CISI exams, its usually for those with a law background.

    Salary- Personally, standalone the salary looks small for graduates. Although, when you realize you are taxed less by UK gov cos you are on the lower bracket you will be earning more than those in middle office and back office analyst in the banks after tax, plus all expense are paid when you are on a client site, that's a very generous salary for the first year. If they wish to increase it in future that would be much appreciated.

    Accommodations.

    I have worked with people who say I am extremely lucky never to worry about paying bills and house rent because they are covered by FD, depending on your location and sometimes luck, you get really luxurious accommodation usually in the financial hub in the city.

    Inconvénients

    Sometimes you feel you are alone, but they try as much as possible to organize events based on your jurisdiction.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep rewarding excellence.

    Inconvénients

    - Trying to position themselves as a tech company but offer limited benefits in comparison to most tech companies today
    - Work-life balance is fairly poor
    - While they have a young/grad workforce, it's widely known that people view the company as a place to start out with and not one where you'll be for a lengthy career
    - Often put on a project with next to no notice

    Conseils à la direction

    Focus on improving communication with employees and actually rewarding people appropriately for doing their job.

    Avantages

    Its a start for a graduate. Working with important clients away and at the HQ. Expenses are helpful when deployed on client site.

    Inconvénients

    Newry facilities are very poor. Would not compare to similar tech companies, they say they have loads of awards but its just not like that.
    Not a great culture, everyone kind of hates it, there just isn't much love for the company. The company sees you as replaceable, they simply do not care about you.
    The management structure is inaccessible.
    Lack of genuine long term opportunities.

    Conseils à la direction

    Work/life balance could have been improved upon.
    Stop doing the bare minimum for staff, encourage and motivate by providing benefits like other tech companies.
