Pros

The benefits are outstanding. Great licensing programs.

Cons

Business units operate in silos. Hard to move up if you start in a phone role. Senior management is disconnected from representatives. One year requirement to stay in a phone role each time you change positions. Six sick days per year and only 4 weeks vacation time no matter how long you have been with the firm. Technology is outdated and they layer applications on top of old platforms. Signifcant barrier to doing your job effectively.

Advice to Management

Listen to what representatives are actually saying. Rebuild your systems from scratch instead of adding new applications onto outdated, overworked systems.

    Borderline discriminatory management. Mediocrity at its worst!

    Pros

    Nice campus, free coffee, free parking. Quarterly appreciation event with cupcakes and games.

    Cons

    No career. Politics counts for 90%, which hurts the evolution of projects and deliverables. Improvisation, lack of leadership skills, and management that plays favorites, not with those that contribute the most, or who do the best for the company, but those who kiss the boss's behinds more often. People will often take credit for your deliverables, and will also blame you for their mistakes and snafus. Performance reviews are a joke in all areas of the company, and the employee has no chance of refuting the facts. Management is often clueless, and worse, it often lies about status of projects, impacts, deadlines, or deliverables. Everybody is a VP. The less degrees you have, and the more bs you can talk, the better.

    Advice to Management

    Fidelity is rotting from the inside, and you are losing good people, while keeping some less than capable "managers" and "VP's". Something has to give. Go to the offices, learn what is going on, get more involved with day-to-day activities. There are people who are key assets to the company, who know the business well, and who take care of their clients. They are disappearing, while some "rotten tomatoes" thrive with their less than capable managerial skills.
