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

    Pros

    Strong benefits packages, many smart people, top technology,. You will be challenged. Lots of exposure to a variety of issues in financial services

    Cons

    Ever since the economic meltdown, coupled with mediocre investment performance, and significant competitive pressures, Fidelity has turned into a place where most people are constantly looking over their shoulder for the next RIF, or move to another locale. A lot of management by fear which eliminates any real risk-taking by employees.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. Evolve from management by PowerPoint Deck. More transparency for decisions. More speedy decisions. Take some risks and don't be afraid to make mistakes.
