Demanding workplace
Training Officer (Former Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire13 March 2017
This is a demanding workplace which can easily take up more time than is paid for. Giving extra is not always recognised or taken into account and free time is a premium.
Pros
Rewarding working with people
Cons
very long hours

Good opportunity to launch your career, not a long-term option
PMO CONSULTANT (Current Employee) –  London17 October 2019
FDM are a good company to launch your career in finance and tech as they have contacts with most of the Blue chip firms.
The training they provide is useful but over priced compared to its actual worth.

They expect you to stay with them for 2 full years from the day you are placed with a client and take all the necessary legal and non legal precautions to prevent consultants from leaving before this time period.

Pay for the consultants is ok but incredibly low compared to the commission the FDM sales reps keep in their pockets.
After the 2 years the consultant's salary rise significantly but don't expect account managers to find you new roles as they will always prefer to place consultants in their first 2 years of contract.

Shocking business model
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Glasgow, Glasgow15 October 2019
Trainees are not paid for the duration of the training period and are then still not guaranteed a job at the end of it so are sacrificing 14 weeks max + an additional 90 days pay depending on what stream you are on. The business model is terrible and after all the endless interviews you do to get the position, you still have to interview with clients to get a placement which is ridiculous. This company needs to pay its trainees and offer job security otherwise I do not see it being a continiuing, viable business. The management is also shambolic - no clear communication and the sales department clearly working towards such unrealistic targets and not communicating with the recruiters who keep bringing trainees in and having no clients or roles to put them forward for.
