    Pros

    Stable, laid-back environment. Excellent 401k matching. Decent overall compensation.

    Cons

    There is a group called Workplace Investing within Fidelity which has many loss making businesses. Sr. Management is solely focused on containing costs in those organizations by limiting pay raises and promotions. Young aspiring employees in this group have no way to get promoted/grow unless people above them leave. Those who reached a certain level are happy to coast along- they won't leave because they are happy where they are. The result is no motivation - no incentive and hence no innovation.
    HR is useless by the way - they don't know what their roles and responsibilities are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Churn is healthy for the organization - promote that. Same person looking at the same problem for 10 years - gives you the same result. You gotta have a different person looking at those problems.

    Cost containment will help no one - it will only make the junior employees leave and create an inverted pyramid organization. If the organization is top heavy do whatever you need to do to fix that but get the innovation engine started. Incentive and motivation are key to an organization. If there is no scope for growth then there is no incentive to innovate.
