I have been working at Fidelity Investments

Pros

Benefits at Fidelity are great, but are more structured towards the long term. Most of the management are long-termers, so while there is some political in-fighting, it's mostly limited and directed towards the "newcomers" in management. Good and bad, depending which side of the coin you fall on. Not a bank, but still nice to be privately owned in this environment.

Cons

Corporate infighting, and some of the downsides of working at a large firm. Adequate compensation just isn't there at the associate level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to cultivate and reward the real potential in new hires, and learn to pay the price to retain young talent. Many of the younger employees are ready and capable to handle larger workloads.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, average salary with great benefits (especially after 5 years to fully vest).

    Not many opportunities to move horizontally across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You could be a lifer here, as long as you do the minimum to get by.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments

    Pros

    Solid profit sharing and benefits, many opportunities in phone sites. You can make a career out of it if you don't mind limited growth

    Cons

    Very reactive to market change, can't seem to get comp right for branch sales, poor communication from the top management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not that hard to get the comp right, just look at schwab and make a few adjustments. Won't be surprised to see many reps walk in 2010
