Pay is reasonably good, but you will have to work for it

Investments Representative (Current Employee)

Pros- Company adequately links sales performance and monetary rewards
- My manager is awesome, doesn't micro-manage (not many like this though, from what I understand)
- Technology budget is robust which means more state-of-the-art hardware and software
- Privately owned company
- Wide variety of solutions for customers
- Benefits are great

Cons- Many people you work with have never worked anywhere else, so they only know "the Fidelity way." As a result, from an outsider's perspective, it can be challenging at times to communicate.
- Compensation plans for sales associates changes constantly, some of the changes make no sense.
- Top sales associates will consistently work 50+ hours per week
- Due to the way service is credited under the 401k plan, you will probably have to wait more than 1 year to get company match and profit sharing contributions.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the desire to be #1! Hold your managed money product to a higher standard, stop changing the comp plans every year, it leads to some distrust between sales people and senior management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
