Productive and fun workplace. Lovely people.
Travel-Coordinator then Client Liaison Support (Former Employee), Brighton, ENGDecember 16, 2013
What was great about the company was they wanted you to progress and move up in the company. In my time there I moved quickly from Receptionist to Travel Coordinator to Client Liaison Support. My typical day was extremely busy and fast paced and I often would stay extra hours but that was the nature of the travel role as people would often put in last – more... minuet requests which had to be complete. I enjoyed going home at the end of the day feeling that I had achieved something as I ran the Travel by myself and it was a lot to take on. – less

Great company
IT/Finance Trainee (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 23, 2013
It is a great company to start your career in IT out of college. The training you will receive before getting placed is well worth it. The office is also located in an iconic building on WallStreet.

A very good place to get yourself motivated.
Intern/Java Consultant (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 3, 2013
Pros: helps motivate you to learn new things.
Cons: unpaid, low placement rate, low pay when placed.
I learned a new language and a variety of new things in languages I had prior experience in. Overall, the 17 week training period was very helpful. You could find help when you needed it and trainers were always available to help you with anything that you needed.

The only down side of this place is their success rate with placing trainees into the – more... work field. The account managers have 17 weeks to get to know us and find us suitable jobs but spend only the last few moments to find this out. – less

Mad House
Sales Executive (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 29, 2013
Do not go there. They are not what they preach. I went to interview then later got a job and was told that I would be placed that never happened.

Great training, when it performs its functions FDM suceeds
Business Analyst/Junior Project Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 13, 2012
Pros: great training and exposure to many of the worlds leading investment banks
Cons: unpaid training period with no guarantee of a job placement afterwards
FDM provides great IT and Financial training to many recent undergraduates that have completed their schooling and to many others seeking to break into the world of IT.

Covering topics from Unix shell scripting, training in Oracle SQL databases, Excel VBA, Java, Financial and Business Analysis, as well as preparing you for your ITIL v3 Foundation certification – more... the 12+ week unpaid training period is worth it-- but there is a catch.

Once training is complete, and you have signed of with the Academy trainers, a 90 day placement period begins. When it succeeds FDM will have placed you at one of many reputable financial service companies or investment banks within the NY tristate area, at which time your are 'leased' out to these companies for a 2 year period under FDM. When your 2 year period is up, you are free to stay with the leasing company, if they chose to keep you on.

When FDM fails, there is a 90 day waiting period. After completing the training period there is no guarantee FDM will place you. After the 90 day period if you are not placed, you are free to pursue other options. – less
