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

    Pros

    I have not found anything good in my 6 years of tenure apart from free transportation and helpful facility folks.

    Cons

    They just taking care of managers(damagers) who hardly takes care of employee's career aspirations. very poor managers who neither knows nor follows PMI(PMP) Guidelines to help subordinates. Hardly understand technology . Even they keep mum in status meetings . Worst for PROD support teams( No learning ).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change Sr MGMT in Bangalore. company goodwill is being spoiled because of them . India policy is not at all good. They don't know what they are doing.

    To become Associate to Sr, Associate it takes 4 years
