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

    Pros

    Benefits are good, location is nice.

    Cons

    They promote people to management that don't have any empathy or soft skills and favor their "friends" reporting to them. If you go in "new", you are an outsider and very few people will make an effort to be your friend or help you. Very clickish, like high school, groups of people who have worked together a long time. I had 3 managers in 2 years. There's no consistency in leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie directly to employees when they ask a direct question. Be transparent, that's an agile value that you claim to want to do at the company. When you promote someone, make sure they have some soft skills to deal with people, not cold-hearted with no empathy who have no idea how to treat people. Need to promote a culture of better communication, collaboration and transparency, not one of fear of management...

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

    Pros

    Stable company, great benefits, good work life balance

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement is limited. Pay is heavily weighted towards Bonus, Shares, and Profit sharing making salary's well below market level

    Advice to Management

    Cap bones at 25%, and remove share for those below SVP. Increase salary's to offset this. Remove the year end 10% profit sharing and simply give everyone a 2:1 match throughout the year.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits!! Great group of people to work with, really enjoyed the friendships I’ve made. Strong culture helped me get my job done.

    Cons

    Rampant “Do more with less” mentality leaves employees drowning in unrealistic workloads. It’s easy to get held back and not perform at potential because tenure is more valued than knowledge or desire to learn.

    Advice to Management

    Do more with less is unsustainable!
