I worked at Fidelity Investments as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Some of the best pay in industry, at least in IT. Fair work environments, matches 7% dollar for dollar in 401K. Easy to move between business units, and fosters growth

Cons

Politics and old-fashioned views really slow down already bureaucratic processes. Lacking some of the more modern benefits. Benefits outside of pay not as good as other companies. Will work you for every dollar they pay.

Advice to Management

Quit worrying so much about your own job security, and just do what needs to be done. Good employees are kept before inept politically motivated ones.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, concerned about people, flexible work hours, work at home, challenging and interesting job, given the authority to make decisions, collaborative team.

    Cons

    Too much red tape to get things done, internal technology is flawed - systems down, conference rooms don't have latest equipment causing most meetings to start 10 minutes late; not the greatest communication of our benefits packages.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the bureaucracy and let us do our jobs.
