Advice to Management
I have been working at FDM Group full-time for more than 5 years
As someone who has been at FDM for 5+ years, I can say honestly that you get out what you put in. That applies both to internal staff roles and to the consultant careers program. If you work hard,... take the time to learn and take the training seriously, and look at it as a long-term career development investment, the doors opened to you through FDM can be amazing and set you up for a really meaningful professional trajectory. You will have to work hard for it, but it’s absolutely within reach. In my personal experience I can say I've been given increasing responsibility in my years here, growing my role within my team and the wider business. I’ve seen the business expand to include new offices and countries of operation. The pace of work is dynamic and quickly changing, and a sociable and hardworking team makes that an enjoyable challenge. As I've been at FDM for a while I've also had the privilege of seeing the career growth of peers who went through the consultant program. In North America, the rate at which our consultants transition internally to clients following completion of the 2-year program is very high. I’ve watched consultants I knew from training grow into managers themselves, and some of them now lead multinational teams or have relocated to amazing locations around the globe. Yes, the two years at FDM can seem like a daunting commitment to a recent graduate, but the experience you gain through FDM’s client placements truly sets up the path for rewarding career. If you are willing to put in the effort – be proactive in seeking out mentor(s), get (and implement) feedback to improve yourself, say "yes" to challenging yourself with new projects – that's in my experience been the best path to succeed at FDM, whether you're staff or a consultant working with clients.
The hours can be demanding during certain peak seasons/projects Because it's a fast-paced work environment, it can be stressful at times
