Great company to settle down and retire from; not best for earlier in your career if you wish to learn.

I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great perks. In terms of bonus, profit sharing, 401(k) match, health and insurance benefits. If you are good management usually goes at length to keep you happy and retain you. Does respect work life balance.

Cons

Bit of bureaucracy and personal interests make environment little rigid in terms of work and future roadmaps. Since a big part of salaries ( specially from senior levels) are tied to bonuses, focus changes from overall team goal to personal goals and marketing, making environment unpleasant. If you are a technical personal specially earlier in your career and want to grow technically, this might not be the right place to start.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue what you are doing to retain good employees. Please reduce bureaucracy and come up with better ways to retain your technical staff.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of structure

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, slow-paced, and hypocritical. Watch "Office Space" for an idea of what it's like working in IT

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't say you reward asking questions and taking risks when in reality it is frowned upon

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good 401K Match and Profit Sharing, health insurance. Vacation - 3 weeks to start - 4 after 5 years and holidays

    Cons

    Toxic work environment, Some people never break a sweat while others are burried. If you work hard, you are expected to work harder and are never rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to change things every year. The yearly campaigns are a huge waste of effort. Look at the few things that work and let them grow. Respect and treat the employees as individuals.
