I wished my second manager, after being promoted, would have been as excellent as my first manager.

    Pros

    Opportunity to try different careers. I moved around from a contractor to full time then moved into 5 other types of positions within my 19 yrs at Fidelity. Great benefits. I was able to use adoption cost benefits, PC purchasing 3 times, continuing ed assistance, fitness reimbursement, etc. while there. Last job with Mondays off and remote work from home one day was great!

    Cons

    Company is downsizing and relocating workers in an ongoing basis for the past 4 years. Folks that relocated to NC found they were laid off soon after. They used to RIF in large volumes but appear to do 100 at a time now to go under the radar of media. They do have a great severance package though for those with many years. Recently it's been more difficult to climg the ladder due to cost cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Don't use outside agencies to see which heads you're cutting. Use more sugical strikes. You're cutting some main arteries by slicing off some brains that are the only ones that know all the intricacies of the existing systems. Makes me concerned for the companie's future service.

    Take advantage of the economy and get rid of the underperforming employees. At the same time, reward those who have a desire to do a good job and work hard!
