    Pros

    If you are looking for a job to help pay the bills, working at FD is a piece of cake if you do not mind the long hours.

    Cons

    No career development and no promotions. If you are an ambitious person by nature you will regreat the time spent in FD and look for other job within weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Promotion and remuneration policy needs to be reviewed to acknowledge talents so they can bring better jobs to the company and so on

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Applied online for a graduate position as a Data Scientist. Received a response on the same day requesting a telephone interview. 3 weeks after the telephone interview, received an email requesting a Skype interview. Both interviews were with HR, each lasting about 10-15minutes. No technical questions asked, just standard questions. Asking about your CV, educational experience, what you know about the company, etc. Very pleasant experience.
