Pros

Great brand, very smart folks to work with, lots of exposure to multiple kinds of work if you're good and willing to put in the effort, mobility within the company is very good, lots of internal training available, growth potential is huge

Cons

Very political space and typical big organization environment. Don't be surprised by people claiming credit for your work, not have enough time to do career development with your boss, or having limited rewards for your work. Consensus building is huge at Fidelity which is both a positive and a negative.

Advice to Management

Folks at the top have little idea who actually creates the creative work. There are so many innovative ideas that either get dropped, ignored or watered down due to design-by-committee.

    Benefits. Health care is great. Fitness reimbursement and computer reimbursement.

    Its hard to fire people so management can be awful in the Branches.
