    Pros

    Fidelity does a top-notch job in developing their associates. You have unlimited opportunity if you are committed and driven. Their benefits program is fantastic, with a 7% 401k match! I know I will be able to find any role in my future career path at this firm.

    Cons

    If you are in the branches, you are putting the customer first, which can make work/life balance challenging. Only certain roles have the ability to work remotely, and often early morning meetings require 9-10 hr workdays

    Advice to Management

    Continue being transparent to your employees; giving them exposure and access to senior leaders, and investing in individual development.

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

    Pros

    Benefits decent, 401k match excellent

    Cons

    No raises for years despite record profits, jobs eliminated and moved cross country on a whim, vicious office politics, too much kool-aid dispensing

    Advice to Management

    "everyone is overpaid" is not an inspiring vision. moving and wiping out entire departments has terrible consequences. "past performance is no guarantee of future success."
