    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, good culture, inspiring work environment, provides mobility within the company and keeps employee motivated taking on different roles. Actively promotes new technology and adapt new ideas. All employees are well respected - best handled HR.

    Cons

    Hard to move up after beyond certain point. At times matrix management can get your way.

    Advice to Management

    Promote and encourage more manager and senior associate rotations. Some groups has become less than efficient and stereotyped due to lot of long timers on same role.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Very relaxed atmosphere - Good perks - Nice people - Money is good for the effort required - If you accept what it is, a very easy and nice way to make a living

    Cons

    - A little racist - especially if you are not American, forget about progressing up the ladder; London office is merely seen as a satellite office and is a toy thing/pass time/waiting room for management who don't quite make the cut in Boston. - Very senior management - from board members to CEO have no connection or care for the London office; essentially a b*stard child in London.....Fidelity International... shown a little more love from very senior management - With Abby taking over, gender diversification is high on the priority but there is a little other diversification going on....same old deadwood serving little purpose drifting around.. - Not trying to reinvent the wheel; the company is a mammoth revenue generating machine giving employees great pay and perks as long as you stay in line, if you are fine with that - good place to work

    Advice to Management

    Hire locally and give the office autonomy - with reputation being the highest priority, it is understandable why one wouldn't.

    Pros

    Good company but awful tech management. Those on top have no empathy and hardly any profession for women..

    Zero flexibility, no support for working mothers. They will put million reasons in writing to get their way. Gender bias.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. Teams work makes dreams work.
