    I worked at First Derivatives full-time

    Pros

    Young workforce

    Good benefits (unless you are in Newry)

    Cons

    Managers will literally lie to you about almost everything.

    I was misled about client site, end of project timelines (I know many projects get extended but mine was extended 5 times), what the work entailed, no training provided and we were also lied to about bonus's

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat employees like children

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at First Derivatives.

    Interview

    HR called and asked me about my work history and what was going on in life. She asked about First Derivatives and what their program, to which I replied based on information I read from their website and other research I did. She liked my responses and the next day rejected me.
