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.

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

    Pros

    great compensation/benefits
    lots of opportunity for growth, learning new tech
    mostly great people
    personal brand equity can take you a long way if you keep the work up
    private company (i.e. much less of the NYSE short-term view you see some places)

    Cons

    increasing global diversity (meaning that jobs are often moving, usually to other parts of the US)
    heavy, heavy workload
    if you get a bad reputation for something, it is hard to shake free of - the same as good rep follows you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The site strategy is the biggest risk to working at Fidelity, and a lot of people know it. Is this the reputation as an employer that you want?
