Pros

Good work life balance, Transport, Good pay, Leaves
Friendly people

Cons

Very very slow growth and decisions.
Those who talk will be appreciated more and given positions. Those who work and not talk much will have huge problem in this company.
Too many managers. Some managers are only people managers neither can understand technology nor the domain.
Low onsite opportunity. In some teams they create long term onsite even if it is not necessary.
Management exists for the sake of managers.
Most of the tech leads are doing the job of Senior Software Engineer.
Not good for technology advancement.
Politics everywhere..
Not good for people who work in Microsoft Background (.NET). Senior management in US is against to .NET

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce the number of managers specially people managers. It is great organization if driven in correct path.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company is filled with top talent in all quarters, QA, development, architects, project managers etc who seem very supportive and willing to help. Unlike many large American comMost people work their standard hours.

    Cons

    Wish it was based in town! Although thebus service isn't too bad. Some of the bureaucratic controls in place can seem counter-productive but I guess it's more or less the same in enterprises of this size.
