    Pros

    Incredible benefits
    Long-term job security
    Family-owned company

    Cons

    Management salaries far higher than sales/advisers
    Culture of management worship
    Performance rewarded with stickers, green stars & "Good Job!" certificates
    High employee turnover
    Bonuses paid based on team performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monetary compensation and restricted stock awards are preferable to the proverbial pat on the back for top performers.

    Pros

    Superb management who are engaging and truly care about the future and current success of the employee. Very competitive compensation package including salary, bonus, profit sharing, retirement health funds, 401(k) match, education contribution match, fitness reimbursement, computer reimbursement, and MANY MANY more! Fidelity's health, dental, and life insurance offerings are PHENOMENAL!! Family type environment run by a family from the top down. Excellent opportunities to move globally and into other job types and businesses. Fidelity is a highly diversified corporation with abundant options. Depending upon the position, many teams offer flex-schedules, including working from home. Training is available in areas both inside and outside of the employee's current role enabling them to grow in areas they are interested in.

    Cons

    Interviewing can be challenging depending upon the role you are applying for. Also, if you do not have work experience or financial industry experience, it may be difficult to get your foot in the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer opportunities to the outside to bring inexperienced individuals into the FABULOUS company that Fidelity is. (specifically recent high school graduates with a passion for learning, growth, developing, and finance)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty amazing, 7% match dollar for dollar and 10% profit sharing as well. great options for health insurance as well. Training is also pretty good and you get a great opportunity to learn the industry.

    Cons

    Depending on your role you could get stuck there for a while if there are no other job openings. It's also pretty hard to move throughout different business units, so once you're in a certain business unit you're pretty much stuck there. There's not a clear understanding of what other business units and do and what jobs are available there and how they pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage your employees to look at different business units or have people from other units come talk to your team about what they do and what jobs are available. Lastly, limit the number of meetings that managers have, I feel like they're always in meetings and to the reps they seem like a total waste of time.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with and have a good team atmosphere. The facilities are great in Westlake and it is a good location.

    Cons

    The internal politics are frustrating and it is difficult to make major changes due to the complexity of being a large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote employee development and reduce the internal politics.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, good values. The campus in Westlake is awesome, although you have to walk a long way from the parking lot to the building.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by, their salary and bonuses are much lower than they used to be. This is an entry level company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within, encourage work life balance by offering more telecommute.
