I returned to First Derivative three years ago as, having previously worked for them, I thought I knew what I was getting myself into! What I have always loved about FD, and what drew me back, is their not-so-corporate culture and Irish charm – which amongst all the recent rapid growth, they have never lost. The company has undergone huge organisational changes since but safe to say, it’s for the better. They are scaling the business by putting their people first and have introduced initiatives such as increasing the number of promotion windows in a year as well as providing a series of leadership courses that cater to all levels. I’m proud to work for a company that has stayed true to itself, and its employees, and I’m looking forward to continuing to grow with them.
