I have been working at Fidelity Investments

Pros

THey pay is nice, hours aren't to bad..

Cons

It's a rat race. You always have impossible goals, and are reminded daily when you are not where you should be.

Advice to Management

I don't senior management eally have a clue. On a tour of the branch, I had a senior level manager ask me "what do you guys do here?"

    Pros

    - Fidelity's downtown location can not be beat.
    - It's a great stepping stone for college graduates who want to work in the financial industry as there are (were) many job opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to wonder how some colleagues in senior level positions ever got to where they are in the company.

    Advice to Management

    I would appreciate if there were greater transparency from the senior leadership team. As much as we enjoy the annual holiday party at the Seaport Hotel, it would make sense to forgo it if jobs can be saved.

    Pros

    If you're in sales, there's a very clear path to follow.

    You can have your eyes on a promotion starting on day one.

    The pay is about on par with the rest of the industry but the 401k match and profit sharing at Fidelity are pretty hard to beat.

    Cons

    Beware of office politics.

    The system they have in place for measuring productivity is hugely flawed.

    Branch Managers enjoy a great deal of power.
    BM's don't really do much besides interview candidates.

    Advice to Management

    1) Remove the cap on variable compensation
    2) Establish more competitive salaries($45k regardless of tenure? laughable.)
    3) Make an effort to eliminate office politics.
