I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

My team was pretty open minded and technically strong
Your ideas and opinions are valued. They were open to suggestion for new technologies or coding practices
Conducted software engineering meetins, coding mojos and similar things for self improvement
Pretty good work and social life balance

Cons

Salary is not that great for full time employees compared to contracters
Fidelity is pretty diverse in nature. So, the team and location plays a major factor on how technically rich it is. I have seen some teams use outdated technologies

Advice to Management

Try to work on the ratio of full time employees to contractors in the favor of full time employees. Go for more career fairs and invest on the recruitment process rather than just relying on recruiters and the contractor firm, Veritude.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fidelity investments has phenomenal benefits. The healthcare premiums are fairly low and provide full coverage. The firm matches 7% of your 401(k) contributions and adds annual profit sharing money which is a percentage of your salary. The quarterly bonuses are quite nice too! There are many other corporate perks/discounts as well. I like the fact that I work with young professionals that range in age, sex, and race. Everyone at the firm is very charismatic. I've been there for 6 months now and I can easily see myself retiring with Fidelity. I honestly can't think of anything bad, especially since there is PLENTY of room for advancement/growth.

    Cons

    It can be tough to advance (change roles) if you are an introvert. Moving around in the company happens by shadowing others, so you better show charisma and the drive to take control of your own development. Many of the roles require communication skills, so if you don't feel comfortable with public speaking then this is NOT for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue coaching and guiding the talented representatives
