    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Work life balance Relaxed Environment

    Cons

    -Not diverse at all. All senior management is American. Company is very Boston centric and people come from the same schools in Boston. Company has a long way to go before reaching the diversity levels we see at American firms. Diversity does not mean hiring few foreigners to fix your IT issues. Diversity means promoting the best members (regardless of their nationality) and give them the opportunity to make an impact -Not inclusive at all (people keep stuff for themselves). - Arrogant culture. Employees are massively under valued -Flat structure. People work for a pay check -No discipline. People cut their nails in the office -Most traders are average yet they do not know the limits of their knowledge -Company is not techie enough to survive in the long term

    Poor middle and senior mgmt. Ideas difficult to implement. Boys club, promotions based on who you know. Senior women in technology, almost non existent, seems senior members of India technology still believe women should been seen, not heard.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments

    Pros

    Good people, Good environment, reasonable work life balance. Comparative level of success with offshore teams. Performance review process was reasonably clear as work had been done to improve on better linking this with the bonus to differentiate between staff.

    Cons

    Pay could be improved, transport links to office were not good, if you missed the private coach slot due to a late train then you had to pay £20 for a taxi to the office.
