    A lot of bureaucratic red tape. Different organization structures. It was difficult to get new ideas or processes moving as many are very set in their ways

    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

    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.
