    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great office facilities. Good benefits. A pro and a con, the office is empty at 5pm, literally. Good if you've got kids, bad if you're a workaholic. The company belongs to the Johnson family so you don't have the "make the quarter numbers or bust" attitude you'll find at publicly traded firms.

    Cons

    Sparse vacation, only 15 days a year. Company is constricting, merit raises were half of inflation across the IT groups this year. Technologies used internally are well behind the leading edge and well behind peer institutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dear Fidelity, you have internal incubators like FCAT, use those new technologies across the board like you did during the late 1990's when you brought out the first mobile based trading applications.

    Pros

    Excellent talented people. Great benefits and training opportunities. Good company to start your career with.

    Cons

    Company has frequent RIFs just small enough to not attract media attention. New England is not strategic unless your company is headquartered here. Dedication and loyalty are not rewarded. Paltry merit increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to do longer range planning. It's time to invest in your people and rebuild your SME.
