Pros

Support from management is good. They trust their employees.
Good projects - projects vary and are constantly challenging
Great workforce - nearly everyone who works for Fidelity is someone you would want on your side.

Cons

Lots of red tape
Big company feel - even for tech side
Change resistance - Not as open to change as an agile group should be. Agile methodology is in place but not agile mentality in most cases
Base pay & Grade - lots of emphasis into time at a grade level rather than rewarding performance

  1.  

    Solid company to work for, but not cutting edge in terms of technology.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, above average pay, great bonuses, stable company. Senior Management is older and mostly promoted from internal groups which shows you can have a long career here.

    Cons

    Technology groups moved slow to market, used older technologies that legacy systems are based on. Many times there is a mentality that if it's not broke don't fix it, even when systems have the potential for improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to listen to younger employees and try new approaches / technologies
