    I worked at Fidelity Investments

    Pros

    A great company and with very competitive salary. A very good benefit structure. High percentage 401k match. Very family oriented.

    Cons

    A lot of bureaucratic red tape. Different organization structures. It was difficult to get new ideas or processes moving as many are very set in their ways

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Private ownership and long term investment.
    Strong corporate values that are mostly lived up to
    Fantastic benefits for those that want to make this a life-long career
    Broad businesses to move to many different areas.

    Cons

    Very large size = very large bureaucracy
    Too many leaders with golden parachute of great benefits - should leave but never will and hang on too long. As a result don't aggressively drive change (go with flow is dominant and safest choice that too many make.
    Less meritocracy more, play safe and conservative and survive. Hierarchy more important than ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address benefits to appeal to newer generations
    Reward risk and constructive, but different input.
