I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

They have spent billions on the brand, and it worked, they spent billions on the tools, and they rock, the products are cheep and won't hurt anyone unless you lie to them in the sales process.

Cons

!Its a big company and if you are not aware of how you are perceived it could possibly hurt your chances to move up. This is not anything different from any other large company. To the people complaining about how they were passed over or done wrong, so sorry for you but getting ahead in life is about more than just how you think you did at your job, your bosses have feelings to and if you don't make them feel like they made a good decision (At any company) you will not get ahead.

In terms of the people in call centers and computer programming roles, well it is probably tough to stick out from the thousands of other people, but it is still a great company and they don't really expect too much of you from a performance standpoint so why complain about it. Just do your job and try to improve.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. The company is one of the best places for people to store their life savings and along the way a few employees souls get crushed. Move on and keep doing a good job! There is a reason so many people work here their entire lives.

    Archetypal Dilbertland, but the managers are a little dumber and sleazier

    Pros

    Tough to satisfy the 20 word minimum talking about the pros of this company. Covered parking, on site gym.

    Cons

    IT department is unfocused, disorganized; management is absolutely amoral and contemptuous. The pay is a few dollars less than insulting. Bureaucracy and ego take precedence over any creativity or even common sense.

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of structure

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, slow-paced, and hypocritical. Watch "Office Space" for an idea of what it's like working in IT

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't say you reward asking questions and taking risks when in reality it is frowned upon
