    Current Contractor - FDM Trainee 

    I have been working at FDM Group

    Pros

    There's a lot of great technologies that you will learn. Great opportunity to be placed with top companies.

    Cons

    There is no certainty of placement. Once training is completed you will not be payed anymore even though you are still an employee. Since you are under a contract you are unable to pursue some other jobs. You are left waiting with no pay until you are placed. Breaking contract leads to paying around 20k fee. If you're not placed then you're stuck with no pay.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at FDM Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    FDM has well-established clients where you will be mostly working at. Most consultants who finish two years contract will be incorporated into the team where they were working.

    Cons

    Once you sign the contract and in the career program, it is very difficult to opt out during the term. The compensation seems relatively low for a software engineering job.
