    Pros

    Excellent benefits and if you happen to be young enough to have a family there is quite a bit of flexibility regarding needs relating to school, etc. Some organizations reward proactive employees well and goals and expectation are clear and consistent. This is a company that strives for continual improvement in most areas and works hard to reward employee engagement.

    Cons

    Depending on the job and organization, management communication can be poor or non-existent. There is virtually no on-boarding for new hires and new hires are treated badly by colleagues. You have to have a very thick skin and be willing to stand your ground in the face of some rude treatment. The environment can be quite stressful and some department management seems almost proud of the level of stress. When interviewing be sure to ask about the group's culture rather than the whole company's culture. Performance reviews can be problematic with some management teams. Most divisions require mangers to work with direct reports to establish goals and objectives. Some groups ignore this requirement and reviews can be based on the opinions of co-workers rather than on actual substantive performance measures.

    Advice to Management

    Since the culture of a company begins at the top and Fidelity has much that is positive, a suggestion would be to weed out poor managers at the director and above levels within sub-organizations. Performance improves dramatically when new and existing employees feel engaged and are not have to one-up one another. Those individuals who repeatedly abuse less experienced team members should be aggressively coached and if unwilling to modify their behavior, fired.

    Pros

    Compensation is generous and predictable

    Cons

    A tedious compliance environment. Good for company, sometimes challenging for reps.

    Advice to Management

    None, pretty well in tune with employee issues. Many feedback forums.
