Pros

Great benefits, especially retirement savings. $1 for $1 dollar match on first 7% plus annual profit sharing contribution which has always been 10% of compensation.

Since the company is private, management is not working quarter to quarter.

Fidelity offers a wide range of job roles.

Cons

The company can be on the conservative side.
Weak internal employee development.
Weak middle management.
Outside local investor centers, Fidelity has only a handful of campuses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on internal employee development to help retain quality employees

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
