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

Pros

There are a lot of very challenging, rewarding, and lucrative roles within the company. If you find yourself in the right business unit at the right time Fidelity can be an amazing place to work. While base salaries seem low, if you are in a role where you are compensated on performance (commission, cash bonus, stock awards) you can find yourself making a great living with a great work / life balance as compared to the rest of the industry.

Cons

Entry level and back office employees are not paid very much and are not eligible for many of the performance based compensation incentives (stock awards, cash bonuses etc.). This means that if you find yourself in the position of being dependent upon one of these people to do your job, you are frequently greeted with either incompetence or apathy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open up monetary performance incentives to more job roles. Even the back office employees should have some skin in the game.

    Pros

    Overall compensation is great once at a certain salary band. Getting to that level can be a challenge depending on the opportunities given to you and support from your direct management team.

    Cons

    Networking is key. Knowing the right people is sometimes more important than performing one's job.
