    I have been working at First Derivatives full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The ability to travel and live in the worlds greatest cities at an early age is fantastic

    Cons

    HR isn't growing at the same rate as the consultants so can be quite difficult to get hold of

    Advice to Management

    Have a larger HR to tackle issues sooner for on site Consultants

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at First Derivatives.

    Interview

    They gave me 2 HR interviews. The second one was 2 months after the first. They gave me an offer without asking me any data science questions. The offer was significantly lower than market value.
