I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great pay and benefits, very easy to get to and a commute you can really be thankful for. They spend money on technology where needed and help you get your job done.

Cons

Who in management knows about you and what you do is somewhat luck when new mangers are always coming in. The review system is awkward and can't possibly reflect your achievements correctly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Revamp your review systems so you know who really does what and who to keep or let go during layoffs, which have been frequent, deep, and wide at Fidelity.
