How was the interview at First Derivatives?

Pros

Remote Working Interview process was relatively straightforward

Cons

Lack of interaction from FD when out on client site can be very isolating. Promise the world when you initially join but you will quickly find out there is a revolving door of graduates which is never a good sign. The level of training given in my opinion does not properly equip you to enter a client site and very much left up to your own devices to quickly get up to speed

Advice to Management

Interact with your employees when out on client site

Interview process was relatively straightforward

What are co-workers like at First Derivatives?

Pros

Getting the opportunity to work for a lot of the top financial institutions in the world is probably the biggest pro. Also, the compensation package is very good. Coworkers are also great as they provide a strong support system and are generally easy going and a lot of fun to be around.

Cons

Was lied about multiple aspects of the job by HR heading into the position including being given benefits that were not a part of the initial contract. Also it's a complete toss up whether you get placed on a good project that furthers your career development or one that is pretty much useless. Furthermore, sometimes the role that you are promised is completely different from the one you show up to work on. It takes forever for management to solve any issues that you may be experiencing - I'm currently in the second month of trying to sort out a payroll problem with no apparent end in sight. It's pretty obvious that the average employee is treated as an afterthought and that the only thing that really matters is the company's bottom-line. Despite my client recommending that I stay at home when the pandemic was starting to become a big deal, I was pressured by First Derivatives to work there as long as possible so that they could get a few more days of pay out of me. It really felt like I had to pick either my health or my career at that point.

Advice to Management

Please work on being more honest and transparent, as well as committing to treating the employees better. They should try to address why employee turnover is so high despite offering a great salary/compensation package.

Coworkers are also great as they provide a strong support system and are generally easy going and a lot of fun to be around.
