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

    Pros

    Job security, free transport,lunch, good work life balance in few projects.

    Cons

    Although fidelity is trying to change itself it is still stuck in a lot of red tape processes which slow the projects down. Some of the senior management and middle management are stuck in old ways where they will be not easily accessible to everyone.

    "Company that lost direction"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Fidelity International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice offices. Some decent team members

    Cons

    Senior management seemed to be in state of constant self preservation due to the high frequency of redundancies. This impacted team members as little thought was put to their careers and caused poor morale. Senior management operated in cliques and promoted their friends regardless of merit.

    Pros

    Transportation Meals Nothing Nothing Nothing

    Cons

    Biased Management and Senior Management,Slow growth or No growth is the right word. Tenured employees fool managers and give false feedbacks about new hires and managers make their perception and don't consider new hires for rewards or recognitions and and their promotions are also delayed upto 3 years whereas the eligibility for promotions is 1.5 years.

    Pros

    Good work life balance but it's about the only good thing. The Kingswood office is very green. Great people to work with but they all leave soon!

    Cons

    Have worked for Fidelity for 6+ years(not sure how i survived!!). Have not once felt that the senior management value the employees as much. There is no career development, managers don't encourage to cross train and learn anything new. The experience u get is very siloed and you end up very boxed in the roles. There are a lot of redundancies going on as well. The communication to the employees about company plans is close to nothing. Don't even start me on the salaries. For the same work in the city, found 20k+ increase in salary. That's how bad they are They only care about their business and nothing else.

    I have been working at Fidelity International for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Have worded at Fidelity for many years and been fortunate to have many opportunities in a number of roles within technology. - The People make the company and everyone is great to work with. - The organisation is embracing change which will help keep it ahead in the market and brings fresh ideas and impetuous.

    Cons

    However, the rate of change is possibly too great and I personally feel this introduces risk of culture and value loss. There is a massive disconnect between senior management who appear to be driving a speeding train and contributors who don't know the destination and lack the ability to contribute, limiting motivation. Also, with so many new hires the organisation appears to have lost sight of existing talent, lowering morale.
