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

    Pros

    Free Cab, Free Snacks(With a Cap), NPS matching contribution, limited WFH options. The CEO is a really a great person, this shows in org work culture. Selected Certification reimbursement. Impetus on modernization of legacy applications.

    Cons

    Off-Shore onshore work split is pathetic. Cream of the work and the credits for work done by offshore is stolen by OnShore, you only get to scrape the bottom of barrel and fix the mess created by OnShore. Trust issues and Politics. Merit takes always second position. Onsite opportunities are limited to the Chosen ones. Huge restrictions on personal investing.

    Cons

    they hire many foreigners (mostly Indian) - nice, smart people but sometimes hard to understand, will dump long time employees to bring in a H1B at a discount; hard to advance as company is not growing and not much turnover, can be cut-throat
