The work is stable but incredibly boring.

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.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Time allotted for personal training and improvement
    Innovation encouraged
    Flexible as regards working from home, coming in late/leaving early if something comes up
    Reasonable deadlines... I do not generally need to work much beyond the standard 9-5 type hours to meet my deliverables

    Cons

    Salaries err on low side of competitive

    You may end up on a team where none of the pros apply, especially the last one. Look to join a development team attached to a specific business function, rather than something like their Corporate Technology Group (which manages various services shared across the enterprise)... the "closer to the money" you are, the more you will be looked after.

    Good place to work overall, but experience can vary wildly depending on manager and group

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time

    Pros

    Great compensation package- higher than average salary for IT, excellent health benefits, good bonuses, matching 401k, profit-sharing, yearly raises plus the chance for extra money through "internal shares" (it is a private company). Can be a great place to spend some time and get some good experience.

    Cons

    It's big, and made up of very individual groups that rarely interact with each other. If you're not careful, you can get lost. Same politics as everywhere else, and middle-management turnover is huge. New manager comes in and brings all his/her friends with them (at all levels). That's pretty much expected here. If you're not part of that "in" crowd, you're on the outside looking in.
