    Pros

    I seeked employment for five months after I finished university, and failed to gain ONE interview in this time. I trained in Application Support and have just been placed at Barclays after 4 months at FDM. It has been hard on my money, but as a route into the world of finance, it is helped.

    FDM could improve some areas, the VBA course is one example. But it is a lie to say they mis-inform you! I would like to point out that my experience differs greatly from some of the reviews I have seen. I knew entirely about the salary, when I would be paid, the 2 year commitment. It was discussed in my first interview and on the assessment day!

    In all honesty, My experience of FDM has been mostly positive, especially now I have been placed. I am personal friends with 3 members of staff and to even suggest that they have "no moral ethics" is very strange.

    I am sure other mounties will suggest I jump on the bandwagon and write an overly negative opinion of my time at FDM, but the truth is my experience has been what I expected, and I got what I wanted out of it, which was a job and the chance at work in the finance sector. THATS THE MAIN THING!

    Cons

    The salary could be bigger in London.

    We are left to independantly learn

    Training is difficult at points

    Advice to Management

    relate more to mounties, perhaps arrnage more events where current trainers interact with account managers.
