Pros

great compensation/benefits
lots of opportunity for growth, learning new tech
mostly great people
personal brand equity can take you a long way if you keep the work up
private company (i.e. much less of the NYSE short-term view you see some places)

Cons

increasing global diversity (meaning that jobs are often moving, usually to other parts of the US)
heavy, heavy workload
if you get a bad reputation for something, it is hard to shake free of - the same as good rep follows you

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The site strategy is the biggest risk to working at Fidelity, and a lot of people know it. Is this the reputation as an employer that you want?

    Great company, if you don't get stuck with a terrible manager.

    Pros

    Great benefits, paid training and they pay for your licensing.

    Cons

    The company promotes reps into management and most of the reps should not be in management. The managers aren't required to have a college degree and are more of trading specialist rather than managers. If you get stuck with a bad manager your career development is shattered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting the best traders into management and start looking at the ability to lead and manage a team as the people to promote.
