    Pros

    Great work life balance and great benefits. The company recognizes talent and moves you right along. However having the right manager at Fidelity is everything! like with any large company, you need someone to be an advocate be willing to promote you.

    Cons

    Red tape and VERY conservative.... This is not the type of company that wants you to think outside the box. They just want you to follow the GREEN LINE!

    Advice to Management

    We get it... It rolls down hill! But more transparency between associates and middle management would be great.

    Pros

    + Good pay
    + Good benefits
    + Friendly people
    + Plenty of room for development
    + Opportunity to work from home

    Cons

    - Great internship opportunities, but no room to experience and view other job positions.

    Advice to Management

    Even though I liked my time at Fidelity Investments, I think the talent management can do a little better by expanding intern duties to different areas so they can experience what QA, Systems Analysts, and Infrastructure positions entail and what they have to offer.

    Pros

    Great people and for the most part, a great environment.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking in many areas and managers manage up (look out for themselves and not their reports).

    Can be a muddling bureaucracy.
