      Approves of CEO

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

      Pros

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

      Cons

      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.

      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...

      Positive Outlook
      No Opinion of CEO

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

      Pros

      Healthcare insurance, generous 401(k) match, onsite cafe and gym

      Cons

      It depends on the team you are in. I definitely know people who are happy at their job. However, everyone on my team hates it! There is always a lot of work!!! I cannot think of one week when I did not have to work overtime. And it is, of course, unpaid. Every one is buried in work so nobody has the time to help you when you have a question. Low morale. People are waiting to leave after 5 years tenure so they get fully...

      Advice to Management

      Hire more permanent employees instead of contractors. Constant layoffs keep employees in fear.

      I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      The people who work here are smart and innovative people who love the work they do and most are willing to share their their knowledge and experience. Technology is state of the art with many opportunities to learn something new every day. Some jobs have flexibility and the benefits package and salary is above average.

      Cons

      Most jobs here are not strictly 9 to 5. If you aren't interested in being challenged every day, learning, and continuous improvement - this may not be a good fit some.
