Current Employee - Financial Representative in Westlake, TX

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

Pros

- Managers that care about your career and personal development
- Great benefits - dollar per dollar match to 7% of salary in 401k - Having a ROTH 401k was a great attraction for me
- Currently growing - Opportunities to move into your desired career path - Great for people who get hired on just to get in the door with a less desirable position
- The company is big on following the kaizen philosophy
- The company is moving a lot of positions from Boston to Westlake - Great growth opportunity as many of the Boston employees do not want to relocate - Not having a state income tax was probably a driver for the move

Cons

- Your desk moved frequently, within 6 months my team/department has relocated within the same building 2 times - I think they do this as it is the only way some people clean their desk
- Slow moving changes
- Lags behind industry changes - Needs to move faster with offering of ETF's

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Allow employees to have self directed brokerage account even it it is only 25% of their 401k contributions
- Offer student loan reimbursement as a benefit

    Former Employee - Principal Database Administrator in Boston, MA

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There are good perks, a lot of opportunities to learn in Fidelity. There is nothing like work-life balance in financial world, it is 24X7X365

    Cons

    A lot of politics in some of the groups that is taking the toll on the morale of the workforce there. The folks are scared to say anything due to the bad economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Idenitfy and encourage the good guys.

    Pros

    Benefits. 401k. Training is very good.
