Great Company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fidelity Investments

ProsGreat benefits. Access to tons of training. Work-life balance is expected. This is a great company to work for, they are always looking to do what is best for the customer and take care of you in the process.

ConsPay is on the lower side of the competitive market, however, the benefits are what keep people there. From the profit sharing to the culture.

You don't know what you don't know...

Branch Manager (Current Employee)
South Florida, FL

I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than a year

ProsAn embarrassment of resources...the benefits, culture, and advancement opportunities are breathtaking. I worked at Schwab for 18 years, and I've been over here 2...wish I had been here the whole time. Fast paced, hard work, big rewards...run and get ready to work hard, but they make it worth it! Company is generous and I will retire here.

Consslow pace of decision making...getting better with outside hires

Advice to Senior ManagementTransparency is always better.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great and efficient company. Very pleased so far.

Workplace Planning Guidance Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than a year

ProsTremendous brand-name industry recognition. Even though it's a large Co with a lot of layers of management it's actually very nimble and efficient when it comes to finding solutions for clients' needs and that keeps clients and customers satisfied. The company spends a lot of $$ on innovation and technology and it's refreshing to see how it keeps clients' needs above everything else. Client is #1. Benefits are great: 7% co match in 401k (dollar for dollar) and also a 10% Profit Sharing (on average) after 1 year of service. HSA contributions, plus incentive performance awards are above industry average. The culture is very conservative but they do respect all people no matter the associate's sexual or religious background. Last but not least, the company is very committed to integrity and compliance standards so it stays out of negative headlines and it's extremely well run. It's been a great place for me to work here and I'm very pleased to be part of this organization.

ConsVery large company so it's hard sometimes to get a lot of visibility and may feel lost without proper mentoring.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement more mentoring programs that reach all levels and foster more cooperation and career advice/best practices among all associates and senior management in all divisions. Create more TV Ads campaigns from the employees' "angle"/perspectives to show how passionate associates are to help customers.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
