I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible, good pay, excellent benefits. They are extremely focused on their customer, which makes the company successful. Everyone I worked with was nearly always very professional.

Cons

Lots of politics, very slow to advance employees, overly value soft skills in technical employees. They say that at Fidelity you're rewarded for what you do but my experience was that its at least half due to your political skill, as it is with many large companies.

Advice to Management

People need to feel valued and properly compensated for their work.

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

    Pros

    Fitness reimbursement; online training courses

    Cons

    You're position is not "confirmed" until after your 1 year anniversary but HR does not tell you that, until then, watch your back, they will look for ways to make your life miserable enough to make you want to quit or give an excuse you don't deserve a bonus. Full of bureaucracy, unless you're in the "in" crowd, you're pretty much on your own.
    The workplace is like the Olympics, employees compete with each other to reach the gold medal, Don't expect you will get the kind of support you need from your peers or manager, it's not for the faint hearted.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep track of how your managers are running their department and their areas of responsibilities.

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

    Pros

    Resources, people, internal advancement, facilities. This is a great place for self-starters who are smart, aggressive and politically savvy.

    Cons

    Very insular culture. Lots of red tape. Challenging to innovate in most areas. Quite conservative. Internal business units often fight amongst one another. Do not expect a lot of career development/talent nurturing training - people are much too busy here for that. You have to take it on yourself to learn and move forward here.
