I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent talented people. Great benefits and training opportunities. Good company to start your career with.

Cons

Company has frequent RIFs just small enough to not attract media attention. New England is not strategic unless your company is headquartered here. Dedication and loyalty are not rewarded. Paltry merit increases.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to do longer range planning. It's time to invest in your people and rebuild your SME.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1.) The company invests a lot of money in Learning and Development including paying for your licenses and maintaining them in 53 states.

    2.) The morale of the place is very encouraging for the most part. Upper management really does well at maintaining a positive work environment that is uplifting for its employees.

    3.) Benefits package is pretty spectacular if you stay for over a year.

    4.) You take so many calls that you are forced to learn ALOT and FAST! It's very good if you don't have a finance background like myself.

    Cons

    1.) Low Pay
    2.) Small Bonuses
    3.) The micromanaging of call stats
    4.) On the phone all day and since the company is the biggest in the financial industry the calls never stop coming. ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your reps more money and allow for true vertical movement with better commissions to sales rep who go to bat for you everyday supporting your financial empire.
