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

    Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Merrimack, NH

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (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 (less than an 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

    Doesn't Recommend
