Enjoyable contract, though it's a large financial company, it feels more like a software house

I worked at Fidelity Investments as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

The company is filled with top talent in all quarters, QA, development, architects, project managers etc who seem very supportive and willing to help. Unlike many large American comMost people work their standard hours.

Cons

Wish it was based in town! Although thebus service isn't too bad. Some of the bureaucratic controls in place can seem counter-productive but I guess it's more or less the same in enterprises of this size.

    Pros

    Good challenging work. If you thrive on pressure, this is good for you. You should be able to get opportunities to work on new and interesting tasks. Compensation is good - bonus and benefits.

    Cons

    It seems that management learned to avoid plant-closing laws by phasing their layouts over time. From roughly 2009 through 2011, we would hear about a layoff at one business group or another on the first Tuesday of each month. Later in 2011 and 2012. there was a heavy push on "site strategy", where they were moving jobs out of Boston and other Northeast offices to Texas, North Carolina and offshore. Lots of disruption with that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much change for the sake of change.
