    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, meritocracy 95% of the time, quality working environment, willing to promote from within (I started on the phone and ended up in development). Allowed me to be adventurous and try three careers in 11 years. Smart and talented people. Good support for women and many women in management. Beautiful campuses.

    Cons

    Can get stuck in a position if your salary is too high for lateral move. Bad managers can ruin the experience. Mission not deeply satisfying. Low diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on finding and creating quality people, promoting based on talent, and inclusive hiring. Don’t become complacent: keep making innovative and competitive products / services. Identify and remove poor managers quickly.

    Pros

    The people who work here are smart and innovative people who love the work they do and most are willing to share their their knowledge and experience.
    Technology is state of the art with many opportunities to learn something new every day.
    Some jobs have flexibility and the benefits package and salary is above average.

    Cons

    Most jobs here are not strictly 9 to 5. If you aren't interested in being challenged every day, learning, and continuous improvement - this may not be a good fit some.
