    Pros

    Probably the best training I've ever been through. I was hired on w/o my securities licenses and spent the first few months of work studying and in the classroom learning the Fidelity systems/culture/etc. (white getting paid). They hire great people, so everyone you work with knows their stuff and is enjoyable to be around. The company is extremely generous (10% of salary profit sharing bonus every year, fantastic benefits - I even got a $100 xmas bonus 2 mos. after being hired). If you're looking to get into the securities business this is a great place to get your licenses and cut your teeth.

    Cons

    This is a phone center job. Your schedule is 100% set for you, down to the 15 min breaks before and after lunch, which is understandable, your job is to answer the phones. Most of the day you're not placing trades for customers but doing some sort of account maintenance (pw resets, IRA distributions, sending them forms, etc.). Everything is tracked and monitored (again, understandable, just be aware before you take the job). After training when you're on the phones all day you don't see much of your coworkers, it's mostly about talking to customers at your cubicle/desk. The job becomes very monotonous quickly.

    Pros

    Great long term benefits, collegiate environment, good work, company really cares for customer. The firm is in a very unique and strong position in the financial services industry

    Cons

    Average compensation (and very slow growth), slow vesting schedule for profit share/contribution matches, bureaucracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in talent development at junior levels. Improve career planning and support for associates. Increase speed in decision making and cut red tape
