I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (less than a year)

Pros

I will say that the Series 7 training that they provide is excellent. Ok for a year, if it's your first job out of college.

Cons

Upper management does a great cheer-leading bit but the real world is quite different. Every move you make is recorded and monitored, if you make a rookie mistake they make you feel terrible, very little praise without a "but". Lot's of nitpicking criticism. You have no time to socialize because every minute is accounted for. The work itself is ok but quite a grind when you average 50 calls a day with only 2 15 min. breaks. Grueling for little pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You work people to death, for sub-par wages. Then you criticize and berate employees for every little thing. The only reason you have good retention is that the economy is terrible for jobs. When this changes you will see a mass exodus.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Technology makes job easier due to Fidelity commitment of stream lining business, and focusing on the client experience.

    Cons

    Easy to cap out on income here, and not a lot of opportunities for future growth without relocating to Boston.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should focus on rewarding their most loyal employees, and not just the new guy who is coming over from TIAA Cref.
