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

    Pros

    Compensation seems fairly structured to reward performance. Company has a great nationwide presence, excellent brand and reputation, and comprehensive financial product and service lineup to meet nearly any client's needs.

    Cons

    As with most large firms, there is bureaucracy. Complex service issues take too long to resolve. Upper management seems to take too long to process and implement feedback from reps. Some services, such as in-house managed money, have a lot of room for improvement.

    Compensation structure for branch reps (account executives) is skewed too heavily at short term performance rather than long term.

    Overall, if you work in a branch, the quality of your work environment depends largely on your manager and his / her boss. Some are micro-managers who have no perspective and others a great people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solicit feedback from reps on everything to their feelings about management to compensation to products and services. Let the reps know you understand their views and what you are going to do about it.

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

    Pros

    Resources, people, internal advancement, facilities. This is a great place for self-starters who are smart, aggressive and politically savvy.

    Cons

    Very insular culture. Lots of red tape. Challenging to innovate in most areas. Quite conservative. Internal business units often fight amongst one another. Do not expect a lot of career development/talent nurturing training - people are much too busy here for that. You have to take it on yourself to learn and move forward here.
