Pros

Fidelity is a great place to start your career in the financial services industry. They will take you in, get you licensed, teach you all of the fundamentals, instill great work ethic in you, and always encourage career development. And with how spread out the company is, you can essentially work anywhere and know you'll have a great job with great people. The pay is ok, but the benefits are amazing which is truly what helps you setup your retirement savings. They offer 401(k) match and profit sharing, and that all adds up quickly. Many people spend their entire working careers at Fidelity.

Cons

There aren't a lot of cons other than some of the people--a lot of middle management can be extremely obnoxious with inflated heads & egos, and they are also the ones who somewhat control your career, besides yourself, of course.
Fidelity is way too conservative too, which can also be a 'pro.' And their compliance policies are some of the strictest you'll see anywhere.
They need to show their employees how much they value them with better pay--a lot of the positions deserve to be paid a bit more for the hard work that is expected, but again, it's hard to complain about that b/c of everything else that is positive about the company.
Even with its cons, I would recommend Fidelity to anyone who is a solid, sharp, hard working, & committed worker.

Advice to Management

Keep a closer eye on middle-management--those who are closest to your front line working force. Ask for direct & candid feedback from front line employees about their managers--you might be surprised with how horrible some of the people are who are given that amount of power at the management level.

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the corporation really knows how to treat its employees. I have been working at a branch with about 20 other advisors and everyone has been extremely supportive of one another and helpful.

    Cons

    I have only been working for the company for about 9 months and so far I haven't noticed anything I don't like about the company.

    Pros

    Extremely competitive pay and benefits. Paid training. Company actually practices what they preach when they say they balance employees, clients, and the firm.

    Cons

    Working for a large corp means sometimes your interests can get lost in the infrastructure, but its easy to get lost at any big company. Fidelity goes a long way to try and make you comfortable.

    Advice to Management

    None.
