Great company to settle down and retire from; not best for earlier in your career if you wish to learn.

I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great perks. In terms of bonus, profit sharing, 401(k) match, health and insurance benefits. If you are good management usually goes at length to keep you happy and retain you. Does respect work life balance.

Cons

Bit of bureaucracy and personal interests make environment little rigid in terms of work and future roadmaps. Since a big part of salaries ( specially from senior levels) are tied to bonuses, focus changes from overall team goal to personal goals and marketing, making environment unpleasant. If you are a technical personal specially earlier in your career and want to grow technically, this might not be the right place to start.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue what you are doing to retain good employees. Please reduce bureaucracy and come up with better ways to retain your technical staff.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good 401K Match and Profit Sharing, health insurance. Vacation - 3 weeks to start - 4 after 5 years and holidays

    Cons

    Toxic work environment, Some people never break a sweat while others are burried. If you work hard, you are expected to work harder and are never rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to change things every year. The yearly campaigns are a huge waste of effort. Look at the few things that work and let them grow. Respect and treat the employees as individuals.

    Former Employee - BPS Intern
    Former Employee - BPS Intern

    I worked at Fidelity Investments as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    The compensations for Interns was more than fair. If you are currently seeking a post graduate degree your compensations is increased in comparison to undergraduate interns.

    Great opportunity to meet upper level management and work in a team setting on several projects throughout the internship.

    Cons

    The Business Unit seems to be shrinking, they are asking associates to perform two or three peoples jobs. They make several internal hires and opportunities to get into this Fidelity business unit externally seems to be limited.

    This is not a favorable internship opportunity(BPS internship) for those with degrees in accounting and finance but they like to hire those types of students because of our analytical skills. I suggest that students with those types of backgrounds look to get into other business units within Fidelity.

    The project work within this business unit has limited excitement and can seem rather dull most of the time. This business unit is dedicated primarily toward pensions and health & welfare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall this is a satisfactory opportunity. I would suggest that interns be allowed to rotate into the different segments of Fidelity, especially if this department is hiring Finance and Accounting students.
