I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Friendly work environment. Many very nice and noble people.
Good pay (unimpresive base salary but high bonus + profit sharing + ...)
Company greatly values my job and return with great reward.
Company cares about employees' life-work balance and career advancement..
Great opportunity to work with financial aspect and with financial and business people.
When they layoff people due to business decision they inform several months ahead and then provide nice package. They also allow laid off people to stay in office and use their work computer for weeks to look for jobs. I guess they trust laid off people won't do any harm to company because company treat them very reasonably.
Ted John is a very sensible person.

Cons

There are a lot overhead, although all people work very very hard, the outcome is not as much.

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. Beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Management skills are not measured or appreciated. Position is more often political and based on who you know rather than qualifications. Mismanagement has resulted in a entirely dysfunctional IT organization that is hobbled by a bizarre anti Microsoft sentiment that is supposedly present at the highest levels. Company spends millions trying to integrate mismatched solutions rather than just adopting any single vendor. Used to be a technology leader but is currently technology schizophrenic. This company also used to develop its management leaders internally, those days have seemingly ended with recent management additions brought in form various other Wall Street firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement management quality metrics and start eliminating management dead wood. Start promoting longtime employees who really understand the problems inherent to Fidelity's current culture. Also, Ned is obviously in age related decline (physically and mentally), its time.....
