    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits including profit sharing and bonuses are great. The breadth of this company provides a great opportunity to try out different career paths or boost your current one.

    Cons

    In my current role, I am working overtime more often than I'd like with recognition that seems to only go so far until it sizzles out. That may be tied to the size of the company itself, where promotions work in a "trickle down" manner.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. I like the direction Abby is taking this company. I think sticking to our current principles will turn out to be a big success.
