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

    Pros

    Benefits... 7% 401k match, 10% profit sharing, good health insurance along with $1000 in HSA money each year given to you, fitness reimbursement.

    You don't take your work home with you and also time and half anything worked over 40 hrs, no weekends.

    Cons

    Call center environment. Constantly on phone and can be mentally and emotionally exhausting. Hard to move to position that is not on phones.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    In my role, the work / life balance seems to be good. Nobody bothers you. Very flexible. Corporate seems to be doing a great job.

    Cons

    Training seems to be inconsistant. Nobody seems to be on the same page. The people are not friendly and can be jerks at times, arrogant and cold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the weakest link is the unfriendliness of my coworkers. I am shocked at the coldness of the people I have to spend most of my time with. It is a big dissapointment to me and it shouldn't be like this. I think a great way to improve this would be to implement some team building exercises. You don't have to spend too much time on this. Just something to better connect you with your coworkers. It is hard to dive for a ball in the stands for teamates that don't respect you.

    Pros

    Benefits, retirement funding, financial advice,

    Cons

    It's a BIG company with a BIG bureaucracy. Know it and embrace it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency will win you great respect. There just aren't enough managers doing that.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a great salary for a young person just starting a job. Everyone is super friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Like what happened to me, they can create a virtual version of your job that eliminates the need for you (even though I quit before anyone said anything to me) *they did say that they would look for spots for me in other departments

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large, privately held firm with values that are reinforced at all levels of leadership. Career opportunities are ongoing and the vast majority of people at the firm will help you progress if you're willing to do the work.
    Fidelity provides exceptional benefits with options based on personal needs and various family situations. While pay and bonus structures are sometimes criticized, being patient will pay off for those who are willing to wait.

    Cons

    Fidelity retail is open 24 hours, causing scheduling conflicts for some candidates
    Career tracks within the firm can be limited due to licensing requirements, or lack of licensing flexibility in the groups

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue listening to the people talking with the customers.
    Review the regional pay practices more often, especially during tight labor markets in order to attract and retain the best and brightest.
