    Deteriorating culture, talent pool diminishing , management self serving, seasoned reps run.

    Current Employee - Vice President

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fast promotion early phase career due to seasoned talent leaving pockets for movement.
    Fair work life balance.
    Free coffee.
    Benefits are ok but they are slowly being taking away
    50 years of brand recognition (good)
    Great relationships with peers.

    Cons

    Firm having identity crises. Technology is getting worse with wasteful spending. Clients are treated like numbers, now that reps are forced to act like a Wire house brokers. I
     Don't know many SAE's who want to stay. They are all looking they just don't want the firm to know. Reps know company surveys to employees can be pulled so it's incorrect data.
    Micro management is immense!!! They even make the reps enter the data for the spreadsheets for upper management. Reps can not even do their job with these time wasters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work from home? 1 or 2 days a week?
    Give your revenue producers a raise don't cut their pay like you did recently nationally
    When was the last time you investigated your leadership through the eyes of the employees?
    Who is in charge?
    TOA out ratio? It isn't the employees, it's you! Self preservation clouds the truth.

    Hired through Veritude, Fidelity's staffing company

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments

    Pros

    There is a bit of learning curve, but after that it is an easy job.

    Cons

    Do not accept employment through Veritude. They hired me with 23 others. We were brought on under the guise of temp to perm, and promptly released. We were brought on to cover vacations and the tax season, then kicked to the curb.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees.
