Used to be a great company

Quality Analyst (Former Employee)
Solon, OH

I worked at Fidelity National Financial full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCan't think of any. In the past is was a great company to work for. Hours were decent

ConsPoor management, favortisim, layoffs, hours, work load, no work/life balance. Staff is treated like outsiders. Management has no knowledge or skills in the industry. If you aren't in the click, you're out

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the management staff you have in there and turn that company into what it used to be

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Females in IT are not Treated Fairly

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Jacksonville, FL

I have been working at Fidelity National Financial full-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible Schedule. Some great co-workers.

ConsA lot of old systems, lack of collaboration and it seems at least some management resistant to change. Women, at least by a couple of IT managers, were thought of as inferior - and one wasted 5 working days to come to the exact same conclusion I had. Another female's role was scaled back, even though she was more competent than the "replacement."

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be resistant to change or stubborn. Some people have innovative ideas that could save the company millions of dollars. Also, be sure you are treating women fairly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

There are pro's and con's

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Jacksonville, FL

I worked at Fidelity National Financial

ProsGood pay at least in my position/ department.
Solid work even in difficult times depending on your department.
Decent benefits.
Cafeteria on site.
Parking garage.
Gym.
River to walk along at lunch.

ConsUnrealistic ideas about getting large complicated pieces of work done in short spaces of time and still meeting quality objectives. Just when you think it could not get any worse, it sure does.

HR tries to support employees, but ultimately they are understaffed.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's time to end the good old boy style of management. I'm afraid that proper decisions are not being made and harm is being done to the business because of this. They need to bring objectivity back at the management layer.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It gets worse every year

Legal Assistant (Current Employee)
Jacksonville, FL

I have been working at Fidelity National Financial

ProsPeers and coworkers tend to be helpful and friendly. Lots of perks on campus...car detaling, dry cleaning, Cafeteria, massage, gym all on site.

ConsIts not what you know it who you know. Seniority, hard work and dedication make no difference when promoting.. Are not flexable with family/personal life. No training or set procedures.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more praise/rewards to employees who work hard

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Disappointing; frequent layoffs in slow times and no hires in busy times.

Title Examiner (Current Employee)
Tampa, FL

I have been working at Fidelity National Financial

ProsNot a bad starting salary if you come from the outside and are needed. Good raises if you are a friend of the manager.

ConsFidelity's primary objective is to get more for senior management at the expense of the ordinary worker bees. Nickel and dime the employees on benefits, while taking big bonuses for the top.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat the employees with more respect.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Management needs an overhaul

Escrow Officer (Current Employee)
Escondido, CA

I have been working at Fidelity National Financial

ProsI loved having flex time and the opportunity to telecommute. The people are what I love most about the company. Even though the management processes aren't my favorite, I still consider the people a second family.

ConsI had to harass my manager for a review and a raise which occured once out of the five years I worked for the company despite several promotions. We never received a commission even when business was booming. Lower level management lacks backbone and won't be frank with upper management about staff issues or even production problems. Management has been know to yell at employees in front of any one listening. No one is getting performance reviews which may be part of the reason poor managers are kept in their roles for so long.

Advice to Senior ManagementEvaluate the mangement team and remove leaders who lack vision and forward thinking. Remove leaders who are meek and afraid to even correct their staff on minor issues. Be open about upcoming changes. Be open about job openings instead of holding private meetings and then suddenly announcing promotions. There should be a fair application process to promotion opportunities instead of management hand picking their favorite friends.

heads up

Vice President (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Fidelity National Financial

Prosits a job...and I appreciate having a job in this screwed-up economy. but, this is the most mismanaged company I've ever worked for.

Consthis company has weak leadership. management doesn't spend a minute on motivation. it more of a 'what have you done for me lately' type of attitude

Advice to Senior Managementlook and review your managers! are the the best out there. do they ever get reviewed? god knows that we don't!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Commercial and Public Real Estate

Commercial Projects/Public Acquisitions Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fidelity National Financial

ProsIf you have the fortune of working with a small group of people instead of in a large office, the atmosphere tends to be much better and enjoyable.
When things are going good, everyone is happy and the money is flowing.

ConsManagement is very sales and residential driven. Even though the commercial sector has clients that are much more intelligent and easier to work with. There is little if any incentive to be able to advance your career. This is a company where people go here to stay and are happy to not go above and beyond their requirements.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on getting a much younger enthusiastic core of employees to work for the company. Change the way that the departments are structures (i.e., have a system where from the top - down one side of the company works with any and all issues in residential, not commercial and government together... split these dept.'s up). Majority of the people have a working knowledge of residential and that is it. Tunnel vision.

You are a "number" to them.

IT Professional (Former Employee)
Santa Ana, CA

I worked at Fidelity National Financial

ProsLower and middle management is filled with many great people. The employees are dedicated and take pride in their jobs. Middle management does their best to shield their employees from the wrath of the upper management.

ConsAs probably with many large companies, you are but a number to upper management. Layoffs are regular come annual report time. It is all about looking good for the stockholders. Each year benefits have been trimmed and offices thinned. many employees are doing the job of 3 or more people as many have been laid off. This is before the market went sour.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow the same loyalty to your employees that they have shown you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
