    Pros

    Great company, great benefits, great culture.

    Cons

    Politics are in play with promotions like it is at any other company too though. Job performance should be more highly weighted with promotions and not outside experience in the financial industry.

    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 Management

    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.....
