    not a company to relocate with. heard of several coworkers going to another location in the country, then being part of the next layoff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work towards longer range employee location planning to avoid what I mentioned for cons.

    Pros

    Lots of different types of roles to work in; Supportive of internal movement; outstanding benefits - compounds greatly the longer you stay; Quality of associates; Management support for innovation; huge IT investment

    Cons

    Lots of job movement to new sites. If you are adverse to relocating, make sure you check on the LT prospects of your role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The significant amount of movement to new sites has removed some of the luster of working at Fido. Hoping the transition will slow down soon so the culture can stabilize.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were awesome and went out of their way to help me learn about the business and the industry.

    Cons

    As an intern who did not hold a Series 7, 63, etc. I was not able to get experience doing what the advisors at the office do on a daily basis with clients. I was able to observe which was helpful but not being able to do it was a downside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was an intern program, but my program manager quit halfway through and I was only able to get half of the learning experience other investor center interns got. I would make sure that if you assign someone to oversee a group of interns that they plan on being with the company until at least the intern program is over.
