    I worked at Fidelity National Financial full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Bureaucracy kept to a minimum. Free coffee, plus all the standard benefits. Minimum micro-management. Each unit has lots of independence as a unit.

    Cons

    Stingy company - two raises in ten years of service. Lack of generosity and care for employees. Downsized after ten years with no severance pay, just standard unemployment. My particular boss did not have a good sense of work-life balance in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up, give back to the employees. Be generous and caring. Make provisions for work-life balance. Show leadership by more communication from the top.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Fidelity National Financial full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule. Some great co-workers.

    Cons

    A 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 ManagementAdvice

    Don'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.

    I worked at Fidelity National Financial

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Unrealistic 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 ManagementAdvice

    It'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.

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

    Pros

    Not a bad starting salary if you come from the outside and are needed. Good raises if you are a friend of the manager.

    Cons

    Fidelity'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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees with more respect.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Its 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 ManagementAdvice

    Give more praise/rewards to employees who work hard

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    I 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 ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate 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.

    Pros

    its 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.

    Cons

    this 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Work 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.
