    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more employee engagement activities like D.J.Night, Karaoke day, Fidelity Day, Bring your kids to work day etc. These activities bring in more positive energy among the employees.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Bangalore
    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Bangalore

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

    Pros

    I joined this company reading the same reviews like most of them do in here but probably the biggest mistake of my career to have done except a few. And those few are the pros:

    - Gurukool sessions
    - Good quality work
    - Good transport facilities
    - Great marketing of own brand
    - Good leave policy

    Cons

    After I quit the company, I realized how come there are so many good reviews about this company. Then I realised probably they're the ones who never had any work in the company during work-hrs

    - no work-life balance, Managers will tell u upfront to work till 16 hrs a day and shout at you in front of everyone ( ask u to do development during day time and Prod support at night)
    - improper performance review, biased and politically influenced
    - Ethics helpline is just a gimmick, there is blatant favoritism etc
    - HR is a puppet who are mere slaves of managers/directors
    - BAD BAD COMPENSATION: Bonus is HEAVILY included in the CTC and they'll eat away all you own money
    - They'll give a huge chunk like 50K as transportation which U wont get upto even a penny if u dont opt for (good for far flung commuters)
    - NO TAX saving options in salary and U get MEAGRE take-home (the company earns keeping all ur money in their own FDs)
    - Medical Benefits/Hospitalization is only upto 1 lac/a where in a part of premium is deducted from ur salary too (My current org gives upto 3 lacs covering even in laws paying complete premium)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. I could never feel that own-ness that I can even give advice for any improvement of this org but the fellow employees.

    My advice to folks joining, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan have way better brand value than this org. 60% dint know about Fidelity whosoever knew GS.
