    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    -Can get placed at a company that wouldn't look at your resume otherwise -Good start if you will be satisfied with anything in the IT field -Trainers are very personable (for the most part) -Doesn't require much experience -Nice Location

    Cons

    -Salary is way below market value -Unpaid training (they don't even cover transportation) -Terrible health insurance package -With contract terms, you can possibly end up owing FDM Group $30,000 -Contracts often fall through (you end up getting placed only to find out a few days later that the company is not interested anymore) -Relocation package bait and switch (you could get shortchanged for various... reasons) -Management rarely interacts with you once you get placed -As a consultant, you will feel like a second class citizen You will find that a majority of the consultants (including myself) are at FDM for the following reason(s): 1. English is not the primary language 2. Smart but low GPA/No experience 3. Socially awkward 4. Veteran with basic knowledge of a computer Do yourself a favor and look long and hard before signing a contract with FDM Group!

    Advice to Management

    Pull it together. I understand that you are trying to run a business but its a little too evident that there isn't a single care for your product (the consultants)
