    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people. I mean awesome coworkers. Fidelity has really changed the culture over the last 10 years, recognizing that to attract high quality technical talent they had to reassess. It's still a huge company with a lot of process, but people are very cooperative and helpful. From an engineering perspective, they have some really cutting edge stuff going on that's fun to be a part of. Benefits are pretty... good, but you may not see some of them for a long time (see cons). That said, medical, dental, disability, discounts on all kinds of products, usually have fitness centers and cafeterias (with steep discounts) at larger locations.

    Cons

    * Health premiums are pretty expensive. To be fair, Fidelity is likely picking up 50-65% of the tab, but that still leaves you with a bill of about $6-7K/year for a family (no difference for .just you and spouse). * In order to get the highly touted 7% 401k match and 10% profit sharing, you have to be employed the entire year, and it's not prorated. So if someone starts in December, they'll get it for the new... year. But if they start in January they miss out completely. This is a real problem when new employees that start days or weeks apart realize the disparity. (there is a vesting period for the match, but that is standard for most companies).

    Advice to Management

    Benefits are great, but the disparity between associates starting late in the previous year and early in the new year in regards to benefits is very stark. A pro-rated system or possibly a cut-off in mid-year would bring the system inline with people's contribution to the company. If something could be done about the health premium that would also go a long way, although I realize that with the cost of premiums... these days, that;s difficult.
