    Pros

    Very good benefits, somewhat stable.

    Cons

    Check your soul at the door. Thoughts of advancing? Be prepared to sell out your colleagues and join the "good 'ol boys or girls club". Hierarchical nightmares abound...transparency in tongue only. Reality is vastly different. In some groups, dress in the best suits and you are in; in other groups, offer your best solutions, implement them and watch, as others take the credit and push them out as their own. EVERYTHING is owned by Fidelity when you work there....your thoughts, ideas, and dreams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To executive management: take more time to get the real story from the line managers and below. Accept that most employees give favorable ratings in the Employee Engagement Survey out of fear. I cannot stress enough that fear is a key motivator for employees...but you already know this.

    Don't assume that just because you move a job to a new location that your best will follow...how's that strategy going?

    Do something about your corporate content management strategy. Inviting VP's back after they've left the company to extract their knowledge is probably not the most scalable or cost effective plan of action.
