    Pros

    Superb management who are engaging and truly care about the future and current success of the employee. Very competitive compensation package including salary, bonus, profit sharing, retirement health funds, 401(k) match, education contribution match, fitness reimbursement, computer reimbursement, and MANY MANY more! Fidelity's health, dental, and life insurance offerings are PHENOMENAL!! Family type environment run by a family from the top down. Excellent opportunities to move globally and into other job types and businesses. Fidelity is a highly diversified corporation with abundant options. Depending upon the position, many teams offer flex-schedules, including working from home. Training is available in areas both inside and outside of the employee's current role enabling them to grow in areas they are interested in.

    Cons

    Interviewing can be challenging depending upon the role you are applying for. Also, if you do not have work experience or financial industry experience, it may be difficult to get your foot in the door.

    Advice to Management

    Offer opportunities to the outside to bring inexperienced individuals into the FABULOUS company that Fidelity is. (specifically recent high school graduates with a passion for learning, growth, developing, and finance)

    Pros

    Company invested great amount of time and money into developing their reps. Great work life balance for external roles with great flexibility. Benefits, Benefits and more Benefits!

    Cons

    You will hit the glass ceiling fast if your any good at what you do... Most people are happy in their role for a life time. So learn what you can and move on or stay and drink the Koolaid!

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparente! We know it roles down hill so just be real with your reps...

    Experience can be very different between different departments or business units

    Pros

    Very strong training program for interns that allows them to be exposed to various different business units. Fidelity treats their interns tremendously well in order to motivate them to want to return to the company following college.

    Cons

    Very little to complain about the company, but some days would feel a little sit slow as some of the full time employees would be traveling during the summer for vacation.

  10. Fidelity is a great private company that has excellent benefits with a fantastic retirement plan.

    The people are great to work with and have a good team atmosphere. The facilities are great in Westlake and it is a good location.

    Cons

    The internal politics are frustrating and it is difficult to make major changes due to the complexity of being a large company.

    Continue to promote employee development and reduce the internal politics.
