Great out of School Position, Corporate Structure

Trade Operations Analyst (Former Employee)

I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat chance to enter the corporate world with little experience. Retirement Benefits a plus.

ConsSalary not competitive, Training was short, Big Business does not help with feeling welcomed

Okay place to work

Investment Solutions Representative (Current Employee)
Westlake, TX

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

ProsGreat benefits offer if you plan on staying long term. Good place to work if you are a recent college grad (gives you exposure to corporate america, and gives you the ability to work with other recent college grads). Good training. Very focused on customer service.

ConsLowest pay in the industry. Extremely micro-managed. Monotonous job you will have the same conversation 30-40 times a day.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

The best place I've ever worked...

Management Consultant (Current Employee)
Westlake, TX

I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 8 years

ProsFabulous long term compensation, career growth, and intelligent and trustworthy colleagues. Private ownership and high profitability has translated into high investment in people, offices, and technology.

ConsRegional diversification is putting strain on finding new opportunities while putting your current role at risk. Alot of movement and reassignment of business units to various national and international sites

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!

High intensity

Financial Representative (Former Employee)
Westlake, TX

I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat integrity. You can leave personal items out among hundreds of people and not worry about theft. Many intelligent people. Great benefits.

ConsHuge on metrics. You must stay within a few minutes of an ever changing schedule. No face to face time with clients. A call center for promotion after promotion. Very few investor centers so chances of working in one are not great.

Advice to Senior ManagementExplain to prospective employees that the entire career for a financial advisor is a call center situation.

Great place to work if you are in the right role.

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Westlake, TX

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

ProsThere are a lot of very challenging, rewarding, and lucrative roles within the company. If you find yourself in the right business unit at the right time Fidelity can be an amazing place to work. While base salaries seem low, if you are in a role where you are compensated on performance (commission, cash bonus, stock awards) you can find yourself making a great living with a great work / life balance as compared to the rest of the industry.

ConsEntry level and back office employees are not paid very much and are not eligible for many of the performance based compensation incentives (stock awards, cash bonuses etc.). This means that if you find yourself in the position of being dependent upon one of these people to do your job, you are frequently greeted with either incompetence or apathy.

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen up monetary performance incentives to more job roles. Even the back office employees should have some skin in the game.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
