    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.

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

    Pros

    - Coworkers are friendly and helpful
    - External educational courses are covered

    Cons

    - Compensation is far below industry average and there is absolutely no negotiating with HR. As you move up, your salary increase is a fixed percentage on top of your current salary so if you come in with a low salary you'll never make much regardless of the position you move up to.
    - Bloated middle and upper management. Lots of directors, VPs, and SVPs with no apparent purpose.
    - Senior management is old and just waiting to retire. They don't want to take any risks or implement any changes. The company is a slow moving dinosaur.
    - The company is still very sexist and racist. Still predominantly run by old white men.

    Advice to Management

    - Pay employees an appropriate salary
    - Diversify management
    - Modernize
