    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 (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.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, total compensation once in Sr level roles

    Cons

    Highly political, No cultural diversity in Sr level management, Low base and beginning salaries

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote employees on performance and not on who they know. Stop talking about promoting diversity and actually do it.
