I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for less than a year

Pros

Quality work environment. Good opportunities after 1 year. Fidelity invests time ad money into their employees and has our best interest in mind.

Cons

Minimal starting pay. Does take a full year to start to see other doors open up. Work hard everyday and things will pan out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase salaries entry level positions

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance, Transport, Good pay, Leaves
    Friendly people

    Cons

    Very very slow growth and decisions.
    Those who talk will be appreciated more and given positions. Those who work and not talk much will have huge problem in this company.
    Too many managers. Some managers are only people managers neither can understand technology nor the domain.
    Low onsite opportunity. In some teams they create long term onsite even if it is not necessary.
    Management exists for the sake of managers.
    Most of the tech leads are doing the job of Senior Software Engineer.
    Not good for technology advancement.
    Politics everywhere..
    Not good for people who work in Microsoft Background (.NET). Senior management in US is against to .NET

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the number of managers specially people managers. It is great organization if driven in correct path.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Westlake, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    Time allotted for personal training and improvement
    Innovation encouraged
    Flexible as regards working from home, coming in late/leaving early if something comes up
    Reasonable deadlines... I do not generally need to work much beyond the standard 9-5 type hours to meet my deliverables

    Cons

    Salaries err on low side of competitive

    You may end up on a team where none of the pros apply, especially the last one. Look to join a development team attached to a specific business function, rather than something like their Corporate Technology Group (which manages various services shared across the enterprise)... the "closer to the money" you are, the more you will be looked after.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the disparity in quality between the different technology organizations
