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

Pros

My branch office in New England has an outstanding team culture where the focus isn't just on doing the right thing for your customer, but also doing the right thing to support your colleagues. The culture of collaboration is rare in the world of financial advisors, but that's due to the unique branch office model which is based on a team effort and results. An added bonus - the branch manager publicly acknowledges staff who have done a good job in weekly team meetings.

Cons

None. I've worked for 3 financial service companies and this is, by far, the best in the business for financial advisors.

    Pros

    The comapny has great benefits and the size means that for a smart, ambitious person, it becomes realyl easy to get ahead.

    Cons

    You are just a number. The attitude was that if you didn't like the way it was, you were welcome to leave because there were always phone jockeys lined up behind you ready to take your job. In the phone sites, the training department and other off-phone jobs were so few and far between that politics and drama ensued as people tried desparately to keep their cushy jobs without phone headsets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Open" feedback doesn't occur via a website, it occurs in honest conversations between managers and teams. This never happens at Fidelity and if it doesn, it certainly doesn't make it all the way up the change. Also, employees are severely underpaid in comparison to the market.
