I worked at Fidelity Investments

Pros

Consistent. You know what you'll be doing the next day for the most part. Cool building. People know where you work when you tell them the company's name. Great gym inside the building.

Cons

Boring once you get past the learning curve which takes only about a few weeks. Work you like a dog and you get no where. Very bureaucratic with a lot of people happy with status quo.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to leverage everyone's talent and don't just do things because that's the company 'policy'.

    Pros

    Competitive pay for the job.
    Co-workers are nice, fun people
    Company is always trying to improve internally but changes policies a lot due to management changes and things never really improve.
    Managers treat their employees with a lot of respect.

    Cons

    Job is incredibly repetitive and not challenging intellectually.
    The company is not really committed to quality because they dominate in the market place so mediocre is ok for them.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, Transport, Good pay, Leaves
    Friendly people

    Cons

    Very very slow growth and decisions.
    Those who talk will be appreciated more and given positions. Those who work and not talk much will have huge problem in this company.
    Too many managers. Some managers are only people managers neither can understand technology nor the domain.
    Low onsite opportunity. In some teams they create long term onsite even if it is not necessary.
    Management exists for the sake of managers.
    Most of the tech leads are doing the job of Senior Software Engineer.
    Not good for technology advancement.
    Politics everywhere..
    Not good for people who work in Microsoft Background (.NET). Senior management in US is against to .NET

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the number of managers specially people managers. It is great organization if driven in correct path.
