    Pros

    An atmosphere that truly promotes personal development. I've never worked anywhere that cared so much about the services that they offer. I genuinely feel that everyone at Fidelity has the best interest of the customer in mind. Also, there is a lot of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Entry level pay is low when compared to similar roles in the financial industry. The company can feel a little too big and that there is some disconnect between different functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering that Fidelity's goal is to provide the best customer experience across all industries, the best way to do that is to make sure that the employees are not overworked or under appreciated.

    A great place to get your start

    Current Employee - Financial Representative in Washington, DC

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Every branch environment is different, this is very evident in the DC area because there are branches in DC, 3 or 4 in VA, and 3 or 4 in Maryland and they each have different cultures. This is a great thing, but also plays a big part in branch metrics, promotions, and availability. I have learned a lot and met some really fantastic people! The benefits package is top-notch!

    Cons

    Upward mobility is limited by the size and availability of the next job up within the branches. If one were to consider moving to another branch, or geographic location entirely, then the availability greatly increases. Onboarding is definitely not very great, they have an OTJ training mentality, which can be difficult in the DC area with "DC-type" clients.

    Friendly environment; interns are valued; everyone is willing to answer questions; the pay for interns was much better than a lot of my peers were offered at different companies; a lot of opportunity for personal and professional development

    At times, I felt like I could have been doing a lot more and utilized better. I wish I would have had an opportunity to learn and develop more skills.

    Pros

    Lots of different types of roles to work in; Supportive of internal movement; outstanding benefits - compounds greatly the longer you stay; Quality of associates; Management support for innovation; huge IT investment

    Cons

    Lots of job movement to new sites. If you are adverse to relocating, make sure you check on the LT prospects of your role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The significant amount of movement to new sites has removed some of the luster of working at Fido. Hoping the transition will slow down soon so the culture can stabilize.
