    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Private company so long term focus. Compensation and benefits are excellent. Pension scheme is non- contributory and very lucrative over time. Job mobility is actively encouraged by senior management. Open culture which is employee experience focused. Always trying to improve. Great location in Citywest, which means no city centre traffic.

    Cons

    At this time I can’t think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep continuing to improve employee experience and facilities.

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

    Pros

    They have decent benefits and pay

    Cons

    Where to begin... - Management is just appalling at all levels. One of the managers said "depression isn't an illness", which just sums up their entire attitude - People are placed in roles that may not suit them (or may not be what they applied for), and are just told to suck it up - Office politics are a joke - Bullying is ignored - Employees are left to stagnate if they annoy the wrong person - Really old... tech, complicated systems, way too slow to upgrade - Use a lot of obscure tech so it's hard to find solutions online - WFH policy isn't clear, and some managers only allow seniors to WFH, while others allow anyone who's passed probation. - People in senior positions just because they've been working there a long time, who have no business being that level at all - All the interesting work is taken from Ireland and given to US teams - Dublin offices are way out in Citywest, so not an ideal location - Bad quality laptops with virtual desktops that keep crashing, meaning it can be impossible to get work done - Everything is slowed down by pointless bureaucracy - Terrible canteen with unhealthy food that's listed as healthy Overall, your experience depends entirely on who your manager is. If you get stuck with a bad one (of which there are many), it's nearly impossible to escape from them without handing in your notice.

    Pros

    Great company culture that genuinely cares about employee welfare. Fantastic HR. Offices are well equipped and modern. Ability to work remotely. All requested software and hardware provided. Excellent pension and healthcare. Management is professional and approachable.

    Cons

    The hours can be long at times but this depends on the project. Limited career growth in some areas / departments. Base salary a little below the average, but this is offset by other benefits.
