Pros
  • Every boss I've had is very easy to work with - they expect you to work hard, but they also understand the need for work/life balance (in 16 reviews)

  • They are not afraid to pay for performance and the benefits are good (in 10 reviews)

Cons
  • Numerous reports required to upper management to obtain money above authority limit (in 12 reviews)

    Smart coworkers and one of the largest in the industry.

    Long hours and frankly, can be boring.

    I worked at Fidelity National Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Personable, kind, helpful employees. Even though they are extremely busy willing to help out with a new persons confusion. Nice IT over the phone.

    Cons

    Everything else. Beginning at the front desk is great. Being given little time to fully assimilate is not. You run around blind yet somehow managing a headset taking out stupid cookies from the kitchen. No performance reviews as a warning sign that your not doing enough quick enough. Expected to work 15 min before and 15 after w/o pay to open / close the office.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training for your employees. Talk with them about what YOU as a manager can do to help them get there quicker before shoving them out the door. Provide clear weekly goals to master for new hires along with one on ones each week for the first month.

    Pros

    Great place to learn different legal topics across a number of states, lots of autonomy, new challenges constantly. The office is taking more initiative to create fun opportunities outside the office, which is greatly appreciated.

    Cons

    Managing styles vary so if you get moved to a new manager it may take time to adjust

    Pros

    You were paid every other week!

    Cons

    The pay was lousy, it was lousy when I started but I thought I'd be able to move to another area in the company. That was a bad assumption. I worked in a dept where everyone else in the company HAD to use our services but were unaware of which dept was doing it. You stayed in your present position until you left, you weren't allowed to grow out of it, you weren't allowed to go outside of the department without your manager's approval, and the department had already told that wasn't going to happen. People stayed in their positions for 10+ years and were pretty unhappy, contributing to the dysfunctional and poisonous working environment. Then there was the office bully that the manager couldn't effectively deal with that contributed to that poisonous environment. The bully was very bitter they had been passed over for a promotion so every day the bully performed for the captive office resulting in someone being hyper upset or an argument. The office bully had been there for a long time and had many friends in the company and somehow held that over the manager's head. The higher ups were, obviously, outside of this department in some castle far far away, and you had no access to them. The people in this department had been there, in the same job, for 10+ years working in that type of environment, no one was happy but everyone was very afraid to go over the manager's head to complain.

    The benefits were lousy, very expensive and covered just the very basics, any prescriptions were massively expensive. They made you buy your prescriptions 3 months at a time, which no one in my department could afford so they found all kinds of workarounds. This company didn't care for their employees, it was truly all about being profitable.

    Advice to Management

    No department should be allowed to operate as an island or you'll end up with this type of department. The person designated to be the manager needs to be supported above other people in that department who had been there years longer. The person above the manager needs to accessible to the people under the manager as well, without repercussions to avoid the hell I lived through while in that department.

    Pros

    The people that actually did the work, not management but those people in the trenches dealing with customers, were excellent people who were extremely knowledgeable, competent and dedicated. Compensation was good.

    Cons

    Worked ridiculous hours with much stress and virtually no support from higher up.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees, you have no business without them. They have no regard for you because you pay them no regard. Getting to know their names would be a positive start. Can't be that removed.
