    Pros

    Great Benefits, Excellent Manager. Encouraged to learn new techniques and improve business processes. I received regular reviews and helpful feedback

    Cons

    Corporate is subject to regular cost cutting which makes job security and salary negotiation difficult. Politics between businesses can make it difficult to create firm wide best practices

    Pros

    Paid on time, did not micromanage

    Cons

    I joined a team, at end of contract, if I did not perform to the comparison of the team, I was let go.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to hire and get the best, explain the situation before the hire is signed up.

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

    Pros

    There is a base salary, steady lead sources and overall good benifits.

    Cons

    The micromanagement is a pain at times. The constant focus on the sale right now. We're not selling tires, we're suppose to be planning someone's retirement

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the planning reps. Many of reps are cfp and actually know what we are doing. Don't make us jump through a check list just for a check list sake

    Pros

    Challenging work and talented software engineers
    Great work/life balance, generally not expected to work outside 9-5pm
    Working from home allowed generously as long as it does not impact productivity

    Cons

    Many software roles are outsourced to Ireland or India making communication difficult and slowing things down. Not uncommon for a team to be split half in the US and half overseas.
    Performance review process is not transparent

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive in encouraging managers to speak with their employees about opportunities that are available in other parts of the company. This is an asset of the company which is not encouraged enough.
