Good Place to work

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Bangalore

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

ProsFlexibility, good employee benefits, transport facility, Sodexho food coupons, Free health Insurance for family, Good training programs, Onshore partners are very helpful.

ConsThese cons are with respect to Fidelity India EGL location. Recent developments are not good, Most of the managers and leads here have reached their position byworking here almost 8 to 10 years. this is root cause of lot of politics, favoritism, Micromanagement etc.
HR and upper management is dumb on these as if they don't know this. they are just interested to show rosy picture to US partners.
Becoming worst day by day.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvise to US Fidelity Management: Open your eyes , when Reorg is done make sure Managers and leads are shuffled. Some leads and managers are sitting in same Business unit creating lot of politics. Specially in EDS Business Unit.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Both Good and Bad

Software Engineer/Developer (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere is opportunity to learn. Good work - personal life balance.

ConsThe management is a mix of all type of people. Some give more credit to "speakers" and some give it rightly to the "doers". Showcasing is the best way to get a good hike and promotions.

Advice to Senior ManagementIntroduce 360 degree feedback.
