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

    Pros

    FDM NYC has good clients specially in the financial industry. If you love technology and finance this is probably the place that will get you there Good insurance benefits

    Cons

    Pay- They should really be paying more competitive salaries, specially for the amount of money they make out of you. Management- There a few good people here but for the most part account managers try to manipulate people into taking jobs they do not want (careful if you want to be a developer, don't let them push you into an app support role you will not be happy) and have no flexibility withing the first 2... years of your contract, they do not work with you to help they try to manipulate.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smart account managers that will place trainees in roles that fit both the client and consultant. Revise your HR procedures, sick days should not be part of the time off, NYC law provides 5 paid sick days, just pay your employees you are making millions out of us. If a consultant is not happy offer a way for them to transition into a different role, may be after a year if they can make it.
