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

Pros

Fidelity compensates its employees well and provides an exciting and challenging work environment.

Cons

1) Constant re-organizations make it difficult to make change initiatives stick within the organization. Each new leader wants to dismantle previous leaders work and rebuild in his own vision therefore some employees choose to not embrace change because they know they can wait it out until the next re-organization.

2) Mid to upper management his very political and tend to focus on their own personal agenda's versus doing what is right by the firm which frustrates the people who truly want to do the right thing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Approximately 7 years ago, Fidelity started hiring external executive leaders from its competitors in New York and Boston versus cultivating talent from within. IT has forever changed the culture of Fidelity and not in a good way. I would suggest a return to the model of cultivating internal talent and moving the executive management team around every 3 to 5 years within Fidelity to provide them with a broad understanding of the entire firm.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    My supervisor and coworkers were all very professional, knowledgable, and hard-working. They showed good work ethics and wanted to help if you ask for their help. I had a great time working for a great manager.

    Cons

    There aren't too many young employees, except for interns. It is expected that you join the firm with industry experience and knowledge.
