    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company has good benefits, good work life balance, and is still privately owned

    Cons

    The majority of middle and senior management basically just talk about stuff and are great at producing nice presentations. The majority of people are like sheep and do not want to speak up.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with skills and stop talking about stuff we are going to do down the road. Produce some real accomplishments and report accurately on the results.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great.
    Investment platform is the cream of the crop.
    Mutual funds given in managed accounts are truly the right ones for the client.

    Cons

    You have to be friends with the right people to advance.
    The company makes it very difficult to find a job outside the call center.
    Feedback from managers is a drag -- managers love to point out what you do wrong.
    Management are a bunch of puppets who have to do what they're told.
    Managers (and senior managers) don't fess up to their mistakes.
    Trade Support is ruthless.

    Advice to Management

    Attribute promotions to performance, not whom you know.
    Be more balanced when giving feedback.
    Realize that you make mistakes, just as everyone else does.
