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

    Pros

    Provided training is decent, and you get paid during it, albeit minimum wage. They also provide accommodations for a portion of your pay. 2 year contract with a client, 1st year $45,000, 2nd year $50000. This is well below industry standard for doing the job of a software engineer. And if you break contract, you have to pay FDM $30,000. For example, my company is paying $130,000 for my contract, but I only see $50...,000 of that.

    Cons

    Pay. They also do scheduled checkups that ultimately provide next to no benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Pay contractors industry standard for the job there do for their contract.
