Archetypal Dilbertland, but the managers are a little dumber and sleazier

Pros

Tough to satisfy the 20 word minimum talking about the pros of this company. Covered parking, on site gym.

Cons

IT department is unfocused, disorganized; management is absolutely amoral and contemptuous. The pay is a few dollars less than insulting. Bureaucracy and ego take precedence over any creativity or even common sense.

    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 Management

    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?

    Pros

    Demanding place. Will get the best out of you, usually. Great benefits especially for longer tenured employees.

    Cons

    Can be a snake pit when management sets one group against the other. Keep your eyes open.

    Advice to Management

    They should take the whole Kaizen thing a bit more seriously.
