    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Over time, the profit sharing, bonuses and 401k matching can add up to a pretty good nest egg.

    Cons

    The "pretty good nest egg" becomes golden handcuffs. They work you until you either burn out or get laid off. They lay off the most experienced workers to hire interns and recent graduates.

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying off your best workers just before they reach (15, 20, 25 year) milestones.

    "HR and Management are good at using fear as a motivator. Leadership is non-existent."

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are pleasant and accommodating for the most part. Work environment is clean and well kept.

    Cons

    Top heavy HR and management at all levels have created an environment where fear is the motivator. Knowledge, skill, and experience are not factors in determining raises and promotions. Managers and some co-workers who seek attention from management will agree to any ridiculous request and deadline. This company has lost many high quality employees and will continue down this long and slippery slope until they figure out how to create a real team culture.

    Advice to Management

    1. Get rid of the "semper fidelis" statement in your company description. It is insulting to all current and former Marines that a pathetic organization like Fidelity - one that is clueless as to the meaning of those words and even more clueless about the meaning of esprit de corps - to use the Marine Corps motto in any way, shape, or form.
    2. You've ruined Fidelity, now it's time to look for other good companies to ruin.
    3. Find another man like Ned Johnson to lead the company.
