Pros

Good Branding for Resume; Diverse Product Range; Well Known Company; Decent technology Implementation to keep up with the current trends.

Cons

Corrupt Managment; Cost Cutting at expense of Employees; HR does not hire quality personnel; Cheap wins always over value; Minimum investment into employee development; Inexpereinced managment without knowledge of industry or expereince managing employees

Advice to Management

The managment is corrupt with politics of who you know, alethough that might be in a lot of places the Fidelity situation is much more damaging to people who put in most of the work and have no time for politics. Unexpereinced menagment is wasting talent at an enourmous rate with best people leaving within 2 years once they realize they won't be able to grow their career. Senior managment in place are people who pass their responsibility onto ones that can do it cheap and quick. There are lots of situations where a husband who is a SVP puts his wife in charge at a different location without any expereince. Many situations similar to that across the organization.
