    Pros

    Great sales environment. Focus on clients needs first and the process of talking to clients in order to hit goals. Also best products in the industry so makes selling pretty easy.

    Cons

    Long hours on the phone. Need to be focussed and have good stamina but it is still a fun grind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Great talent at most of the management positions which has a trickle down effect on employees.

    is Fidelity wants to be a retirement leader, it's employees need to be retirement ready... at all locations

    Pros

    Many high quality professionals at lower and mi levels within the company,particularly on the technology side of the company. Within the business leaders, the typical political class emerges and operates as such. Internal communications is a priority for most of these executives.

    Cons

    Overt focus on personal brand management and career advancement by the middle class. As these executives are often paid well, they can be defensive and self serving due to the low likelihood comp can be replaced somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your stars shine; don't continue to be so risk averse, particularly as it relates to internal development and growth...allow for more opportunities for stretch roles to be gained by those willing to work had and smart.
