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

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.

    Pros

    Demanding place. Will get the best out of you, usually. Great benefits especially for longer tenured employees.

    Cons

    Can be a snake pit when management sets one group against the other. Keep your eyes open.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should take the whole Kaizen thing a bit more seriously.
