    Pros

    The benefits are great and there is a lot of career mobility.

    Many people have been there for 30+ years and are stuck in their ways. Management wants to innovate and change, but it is harder for employees to actually get on board.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - great benefits - flexible work schedule (depending on your team, you could have the opportunity to work from home) - lots of training opportunities - a culture that encourages career growth and movement - no dress code, definitely a relaxed company that's focused on what matters: the customers and the services

    Cons

    - some benefits take up to a year to kick in - base pay could be more competitive - leadership expects folks at the team level to be agile, but they don't drive agility amongst themselves - there's little communication among upper management to each other on what their teams are working on to prevent duplication of efforts... you could probably find 3 or 4 tools across the BUs that do the same exact thing

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you're taking steps to be agile, too. People cannot be "agile" and have strict deadlines at the same time. All that leads to is cutting corners and bad quality software. Setting goals are completely fine, but be flexible and make sure not EVERYTHING is a high priority... weigh initiatives against each other, then decide what pieces are high priority versus medium versus low. Your dev teams will thank you...
