    Truly life changing.

    Software Development Intern (Current Employee) Westlake, TX (US)

    ProsI interned there summer 2013 and went back for a second internship in 2014. I enjoyed the people I worked with, the on campus cafeteria, the covered parking, the beautiful landscape when I walk into the office, the lake on campus, and the job I did. I wrote software and was given a chance to grow, fun things to do with other interns, and was given responsibility that I never thought an intern would get, I wasn't just filing papers/writing spreadsheets. The pay is very generous, I make more money at fidelity than any one I know who interns at another company. I'm able to rent an apartment by myself, and save enough to last me the whole school year on my hourly wage alone.

    ConsMore of a personal con, but they don't have a major site in my hometown. I have no real cons, it's an awesome company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Solid company, truly cares for employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsAppropriate work-life balance, pay is commensurate with experience and how many hours you put it, and company really does take care of employees first rather than work people to the bone

    Conslarge corporation so it's hard to see all sides of the business; really tough to be a source of institutional change, given the size
