    Je travaille chez First Derivatives à plein temps

    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.

    J'ai travaillé chez First Derivatives en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    KDB is great fun
    People are friendly
    Nice to work on a team

    Inconvénients

    You have to use Windows and other Microsoft products
    Corporate firewall can be annoying when trying to do research. Not a fan of being babied like that.
    Sorting out expenses is a hassle and waste of time

    Conseils à la direction

    If you hire me, trust me to be working at work. If I'm watching a youtube video it's probably an info video on a potential solution, not lolcats.
    I don't want to be thinking about remembering my lunch receipts at work. Put £10 on my daily rate and leave it at that, don't make me waste my time filling in online spreadsheets and numbering old receipts. Waste of company time.

    Avantages

    Good Social aspects and regular nights out, team are very nice, people are easy to get help from if needed. Work is enjoyable.

    Inconvénients

    Not a lot bad to say about it. Some aspects of on-boarding, accommodation could be made better.

    Conseils à la direction

    On-boarding had a lot of gaps. Could be made a lot better and more efficient in my opinion. Keep organizing nights out for staff and charity events.

    Je travaille chez First Derivatives à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    - Opportunity for grads to get experience in finance - FD have a lot of big named clients (Morgan Stanley, RBS, Barclays, HSBC, Bank of America to name a few).
    - Possibility of travel - FD have clients in a lot of major cities (London, New York, Singapore, Boston, Toronto, Dublin, Hong Kong, Tokyo etc).
    - Good expenses package - They pay for all accommodation and travel while on-site.

    Inconvénients

    - Highly unprofessional management - Could be here all day with this one.
    - Zero say over where you go or what job you'll be doing - you are seen as a resource to make them money and nothing else. It is a complete lucky dip as to whether you end up on a good or terrible project.
    - Cattle mart - They take on such a huge amount of graduates each month that it can feel like a cattle mart at times.
    - High turnover rate - The majority of experienced employees leave after 3/4 years when they become too expensive for their business model.
    - Possibility of being stuck in Newry with no expense benefits.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Focus more on retaining experienced employees - I really struggle to see how the current revolving-door business model is sustainable in the long run.

    - Hire more managers - There is a very flat organisational structure that needs to change, too many entry level employees and not enough managers.

    - Shake off the cowboy feel about the company.

    Je travaille chez First Derivatives à plein temps

    Avantages

    It's an Irish company, so lots of subsidized drinking events.

    Inconvénients

    The business model is to hire Irish kids straight from university, pay them low wages, and staff them into banks at a healthy profit. It's worked for nearly 20 years, except now US visas are harder to secure, and London-based banks have stopped staffing in the UK due to Brexit.

    So if you are Irish and thinking of joining this company to travel the world, you can expect to do transaction monitoring in Poland.

    If you are a US citizen, you can almost certainly find a better place to work. They claim to be a consultancy, but they are most certainly a staffing agency. If you join, expect to be pressured into taking a role you don't want by a napoleonic sales guy in a polyester suit.

    Conseils à la direction

    Just because you've been doing something the same way for 20 years doesn't make it best practice.

    J'ai travaillé chez First Derivatives en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    salary
    expense program even when you are not a graduate neither you´re working abroad from your office.
    international and young environment

    Inconvénients

    - HHRR - Assigning people to roles in projects without taking into account what people do or prefer. They offer you projects somewhere you don´t want and usually they don´t care if your profile has nothing to do with the role.
    - FD provides you lot of instability, maybe it is fine if you are a graduate and can travel or get your plans changed from one day to another.
    -Lot of arbitrary decission depending on who you are. A company rule can be different between two people with same experience seated next to each other.
    - FD hires IT profiles for short projects and then, after it ends, they realized that they don´t need that profile anymore so you stay long periods on the bench or you are fired.
    - HR are never clear and transparent. They can "change their mind" from one day to another expecting you are ok with that.
    - There is no management at all in projects.

    Conseils à la direction

    take care of the employers when offering them any project
