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

Pros

Overall compensation is great once at a certain salary band. Getting to that level can be a challenge depending on the opportunities given to you and support from your direct management team.

Cons

Networking is key. Knowing the right people is sometimes more important than performing one's job.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time

    Pros

    - Excellent benefits (401k matching, discounts with major companies, free portfolio mgmt, etc..)
     - Great if you want a job that is laid back
     - A lot of flexibility to move laterally

    Cons

    - Salaries are not competitive
     - Boss had very little power in giving reasonable raises because of "company policy"
     - The work is not as challenging as it could be
     - Lots of red tape when you wish to use software that is not on the company list of "compliant" software
     - Business casual dress code forced on software engineers is never a good idea

    Advice to Management

    Stop the infinite restructuring and IT Transformation. When I joined, there was a restructuring going on. I asked employees working there and they had said that it was par for the course and that some of them had experienced so many they lost count.
