    Pros

    Flexible Schedule. Some great co-workers.

    Cons

    A lot of old systems, lack of collaboration and it seems at least some management resistant to change. Women, at least by a couple of IT managers, were thought of as inferior - and one wasted 5 working days to come to the exact same conclusion I had. Another female's role was scaled back, even though she was more competent than the "replacement."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be resistant to change or stubborn. Some people have innovative ideas that could save the company millions of dollars. Also, be sure you are treating women fairly.

    Pros

    Learned the demands of a large impersonal insurance company that's focused on making money.

    Cons

    The company strives to automate all aspects of operations, using employees that can be paid as little as possible. Management constantly searches for ways to eliminate experienced personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep all of the finest wine for yourselves.

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits. Department offers flexible scheduling. Deliverables based expectations. It's an accounting position so close periods required extended hours.

    Cons

    Top heavy. Leaves little room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate.

    I worked at Fidelity National Financial

    Pros

    You will get to work for the nation's largest title insurance company, which gives you access to many resources to do your job. The work itself is usually fairly interesting. You are allowed to work pretty much at your own pace and not micromanaged for the most part. The people you work with are nice and interesting. You get your own office, possibly with a window. You will never be bored-- you will always have work to do! There is minimal travel involved, and you will always have advance notice.

    Cons

    They assign too many claims for one person to be able to handle competently in a 40-hr workweek. Or even a 60-hr workweek. There will always be emergency projects thrust upon you by senior management with 1-24 hr deadlines that are super-priority, but never seem to go anywhere. You will receive little feedback about your overall job performance, and probably not get a raise or bonus during your time here. You will have to triage your claims due to the volume and hope nothing falls through the cracks. Can be very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat your attorneys as professionals and not as mere cogs in the wheel of the corporation. Let us offer feedback on what WE think is working and what is not, and how WE think things might change for the better. Stop changing the entire system every 3 months and reorganizing everything and making us move offices every few months. Don't promise us bonuses that never materialize. Talk to people in the industry to figure out a realistic average claim load. What you are making the attorneys deal with now (both claims and in-house) is simply too much. Things will fall through the cracks and it will harm the company. More reasonable claim loads would make everyone happier and it will be better for the company in the long run! Oh, and keep the people at the local offices that have been there forever and know what they're doing! They are invaluable!

    I worked at Fidelity National Financial

    Pros

    Good pay at least in my position/ department.
    Solid work even in difficult times depending on your department.
    Decent benefits.
    Cafeteria on site.
    Parking garage.
    Gym.
    River to walk along at lunch.

    Cons

    Unrealistic ideas about getting large complicated pieces of work done in short spaces of time and still meeting quality objectives. Just when you think it could not get any worse, it sure does.

    HR tries to support employees, but ultimately they are understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to end the good old boy style of management. I'm afraid that proper decisions are not being made and harm is being done to the business because of this. They need to bring objectivity back at the management layer.

    Pros

    Not a bad starting salary if you come from the outside and are needed. Good raises if you are a friend of the manager.

    Cons

    Fidelity's primary objective is to get more for senior management at the expense of the ordinary worker bees. Nickel and dime the employees on benefits, while taking big bonuses for the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees with more respect.
