Pros

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

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Fidelity is one of the only equity research jobs where an undergrad can immediately become a lead analyst on 20+ companies with good access to top management of the companies they are researching. There is also a strong history of talent that you will be surrounded by. Pay is fair to good for the job.

    Cons

    Management is not honest with employees about current situation of the company and compensation outlook; there has been significant turnover in Fidelity C-suite, and it is unclear what direction the company is heading; limited real time feedback on how well you are doing your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better real time feedback, more honesty about the state of the company and compensation.

    No opinion of CEO
