    Avantages

    FD has offered me an amazing opportunity, straight out of university.
    I have made a huge number of friends, travelled across Europe and had the opportunity to work with senior staff, sat in the board room with executives and worked alongside our CEO, all in my first year.
    I would highly recommend to anyone!

    Other pros include:
    Paid accommodation and bills
    Lots of activities for employees to get involved in inside and outside of work nights out
    Brilliant culture
    Great, friendly staff

    There is nowhere quite like FD

    Inconvénients

    I am with FD for 2 years now and so far I don't have any negative comments

    Je travaille chez First Derivatives à plein temps (Pendant plus de 10 ans)

    Avantages

    I read some of the reviews posted and despair at times. Is this really the Company I work for? Could some of these guys feel so disenfranchised? Obviously some people join and leave, and its not the Company for them. Some seem to have had a bad time and some maybe have a bad exit that colours their opinion. But we have 2000 employees. Clearly not every happy employee is posting and we must have hundreds of those. So let me be realistic. FD has been brilliant for me. I am based at HQ, and have had an opportunity to engage senior management at an early stage and then progress through various levels to get to a team leader position. I see this as a great Company to work for. We are proud to be based in Newry, proud of our Irish roots but have become a multinational, multicultural organisation, hiring from all over the world. The Company has experienced ridiculous growth levels, and maybe at times we have struggled with our infrastructure. But I can guarantee that our intent is a good one.

    This is not a "planted" positive review. This is an honest personal review from a long standing employee who grew up in this Company.

    We have hundreds of great stories - people who get to travel, get trained, get promoted, get time off when sick or when family are sick, get flown home for family funerals, get great accommodation (largely), get to work in great clients and locations, get a chance to shape your own career and future. Get to put your hand up and volunteer, get to give opinions. What the hell is wrong with a place that wants you to push yourself or challenge the norms, or make a name for yourself, inside and outside the Company!

    Not how many times I use the word "we" in this review. I feel part of this!

    Inconvénients

    My own personal cons are listed below but I have also taken the position to honestly defend some of the Cons I have read others post.

    Salary is what it is. Its competitive. If you feel under valued, then flag it, or go elsewhere. Stop complaining about it. For Grads, we feel it is competitive especially when you build in costs for accomm, utilities, expenses, flights. So many posters here are deluded and clearly havent experienced paying bills before!

    Opportunity - make of it what you want. You can aspire to be at any level. Be patient, work hard, get noticed. If you want to moan, go elsewhere. This is a brilliant place to start a Career and have access to T1 Banks that you would not have gotten into on your own, let's be honest about that.

    The Recruiter team are absolutely honest with everyone, you will NOT get to choose your role or location in your first 2 years in the Grad programme. You know that joining so why complain after the event. We are not hood winking people!

    HR Team, they seem to get a lot of flak on this board but I believe it's unfair. We have added new personnel, we are getting more people on board to cope with the number of staff. They are constantly trying to make things better. Processes are always being reviewed. New processes are always being put in place as we cover new ground in new territories. They are painted in an extremely bad light at times barking order or ignoring people and thats simply untrue.

    There have been some real crass postings on sexism and racism and I cannot believe Glassdoor allows that to happen. A faceless coward can post something ridiculous on the website and the world can read it. That cannot and should not happen. I have never seen nor heard either complaint at any level in First Derivatives.

    Conseils à la direction

    Exit process can continue to improve, I can see that happening but more work needs done in this, I am sure.

    Ongoing employee engagement can get better. I recognise some staff might feel more connected to their secondment organisation given tenure of project but they still work for FD and should be made feel that way. However some people disengage of their own volition, and maybe thats always been their intent i.e to use FD as a stepping stone.

    Review process need to improve. Scrap the annual review and make it all year round, or project end review with continuous feedback. Have reviewers truly understand the individuals and their projects.

    Keep hiring, keep investing in young people, keep giving opportunities and do not get down when someone posts a deliberately spiteful anonymous post on this thing. A normal balanced person will read reviews and make their own decisions.

    When I see a Company growing at our levels, hiring 2000+ worldwide, winning new business across the world, in new sectors - then clearly something is going right and the place is being run in the right way. The begrudgers are out there. Let's reasonably deal with our inefficiencies. Lets take the reasonable posts and fix/improve what people think needs improved.

    Avantages

    Great opportunities to travel globally as a young professional, wholly at the companies convenience
    Generous expenses package
    Work with some very well renowned clients

    Inconvénients

    HR treats employees like children
    No career path and employees are scolded for even hinting at this
    All non-kdb roles are basically jobs banks would not hire people permanently to do
    You are forced to travel on the weekends and often at unsociable hours in order to save the company money
    No overtime is offered or bonuses given but working beyond your contracted hours is expected
    E-mails to HR or management are often not replied to and when it does eventually occur it is terse and scolding.
    While travel opportunities are fantastic, the company will not assist employees in any way to suggest their destinations. Even asking about roles in a particular location will also lead to a harsh reply from HR.

    Conseils à la direction

    Treat your employees like people, not commodities
    Create a clear career path for people who may actually wish to remain with the company beyond 2 years

    Avantages

    The technology owned by this company is fun to work with, and you get the opportunity to work with global banks and financial institutions.

    The expenses package when on client site is pretty decent. Accommodation, food and transport are covered (within reason).

    You get the opportunity to travel if you're interested (tho you get 0 say in where you are sent to).

    Inconvénients

    Extremely poor communication with management. You will be left in the dark about what projects you'll be working on. Emails will go a long time without being answered, you may be sitting doing nothing for weeks while the project is delayed. This is not fun.

    The company has grown quickly but has not increased the size of it's HR department proportionally to the number of consultants. Don't expect any good communication. Expect to hear about things last minute.

    Conseils à la direction

    Expand the HR department, make a greater effort to keep employees in the know.
