    I worked at First Derivatives full-time

    Pros

    Nice accomodation provided.
    Young workforce- however reality is there is not many other young people in Newry so social aspect is pretty much non existent

    Cons

    Poor salary. 19k sterling basic equivalent to 19k euro once taxes and exchange rate factored in.
    Most people join with expectation of short spell in Newry and then international travel.
    Reality of it is that its a Newry based company, nothing in contract stipulates international travel.
    So projects arise where you can end up being there for the two years of your contract.
    This means you wont recieve any expected gains such as expenses which give you a reasonable pay.

    I have been working at First Derivatives full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good training, good support. FD is an excellent company to gain experience with. FD also have a very good awareness of their weaknesses and have been addressing these effectively, operation functions and HR have improved significantly in the past 2 years.
    FD benchmark their salaries regularly and will pay a bit above the market rate to retain staff.

    Cons

    You need to be flexible to deal with a certain amount of uncertainty to do with timings and locations of client engagements. Although, this is made explicitly clear when joining.

    Advice to Management

    none
