Feels like a dead-end into Fund Accounting and that you will never be able to leave.

Pros

They give you good exposure to the market while providing the tools necessary to perform your job. There are all sorts of jobs within this company that cover a broad range.

Cons

Depending on the job, a lot is expected from you with not a lot of recognition when a job well done is performed. The pay is generally in the lower part of their industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If it is going to "pay for performance", there are people that do good work but aren't rewarded for it.

    Pros

    Very good name recognition. The company has a strong history of performance. A local Boston-area company that has gone national. The profit sharing plan is excellent (10% of base salary), which is on top of the 7% 401(k) company match. Salaries are competitive to the rest of the job market. Overall, a very good company to work for and one I'm proud to be employed by.

    Cons

    In downcycles of the market there are often many rounds of layoffs, so job security can be tenuous. Certain depertments can be highly stressful, and the work culture is one where those who stick to a regular 8 hour day are frowned upon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to see more mentoring programs and better opportunities for career advancement

    If you work here, leave as soon you can. If offered a job, respectfully decline it.

    Pros

    There are no more good reasons to work here, they are all gone. Over 15 years in IT at this company and they have layed off the brightest and most valuable employees. The 'real' workers are gone, teams cut to the bone and expected to still get the work done. Fidelity is cutting IT and are preparing to outsource the whole thing over the next 5 years. Get a job at a company who is going to provide the outsourcing. You are expected to do your job with a blindfold on and both hands tied behind your back. Benefits are going to be cut, demotions are days away, salaries will be cut and no pay raises expected this year.

    Cons

    Too many to list in the space provided. Run away and don't look back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the damn company and get this over with. Rodger and his cronies have destroyed the company.
