    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent (retirement, health savings, profit sharing, education).
    If you are lucky enough to receive training the you will benefit, but if you work for group that doesn't put emphasis on it then you are on your own.

    Cons

    Directors spend 80% of their time managing up and 20% of their time protecting their bonuses .
    Some of the worst people managers in the business.
    Poor project planning which results in cost over runs and rework.
    The "Yes Man" culture is embraced and rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more managers with success leading teams from outside Fidelity and if necessary, hire more MBAs within your Fidelity Technology Business Groups (EI, CTG, FPCMS, FI, PWI etc) Reason: MBAs have at least read a business case study in their career.


  2. "Great company"

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for with great pay and benefits, talented employees, and a "do what it takes" spirit. I personally have seen great career progression over the course of my career at Fidelity.

    Cons

    Work-life balance has never really been Fidelity's strong point. Constant change - some good, some bad. Past 10 years has seen a significant amount of job movement to either the South or oversees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop relocating jobs. The new talent in the new locations will need years to match the experience and skills left behind.
