    I have been working at Veritude full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    On-boarding with Veritude is well managed. They are the recruiters for Consultants for Fidelity. Fidelity has state of the art technology and always looking to improve. Opportunities are always available either perm or contract. Most groups other than management are free to work from home at least part time.

    Cons

    Work is extremely fast paced. Projects, tasks always changing to keep ahead of all the competition. Fidelity is a privately owned company so they can be much more flexible and dynamic when it comes to changing directions or strategy.
    Veritudes health benefits are worthless if you have any serious or long term illness. The coverage is minimum at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade your health benefits for the consultants. Their dedication to moving Fidelity forward and ahead of the competition earn a better package.

    I worked at Veritude as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are no pros that I can think of other than a paycheck

    Cons

    I was hired as a contractor to serve as a project manager and this company has a large population of one particular group of people that are not native to America and that group lacks diversity training and management training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is commendable to have such a large population of people from one particular country that works for your company, but you MUST teach them about western values, diversity and management skills.

    Pros

    They have a excellent cafeteria

    Cons

    Listening to all the wonderful bonuses available to employees when contractors have none

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider making contractors full time permanent since some have been there for 4 plus years

    I have been working at Veritude

    Pros

    A regular paycheck is the main reason to stay. There isn't much else to stay for. Benefits are a joke. Communication happens at extension time only. Don't expect them to side with you as their employee. They will side with Fidelity automatically.

    Cons

    Veritude employees get every email that Fidelity employees get including emails about benefits that we can't get and surveys that we can't take. How can Veritude get away with not offering Massachusetts mandated health coverage since they are a Massachusetts company?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop picking favorites when choosing to hire permanent employees.

    Pros

    Your pay is ok.

    Cons

    The staffing facility will not respond to you if you have questions or concerns about your employment and training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First I would suggest that they are more realistic with their goals for the team. Secondly, WHERE IS THE SECURITY ???? The building is in the woods.

    Pros

    I like the people and the hourly pay.

    Cons

    They don't go to bat for you when there is a problem with a Fidelity employee! They don't do a thing when it's time to discuss a raise! They don't offer health benefits that comply with Massachusetts required coverage, even though they are a Massachusetts company, just like Fidelity is! You don't get years of service recognition awards like Fidelity employees do! Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing that's printable.

    Pros

    Typically they feed talent to Fidelity Investments ... Every squad is different. Due mostly ro the various amount of security ... Fairly easy to move around if you are good.

    Cons

    W2 is ok, but Health plan is bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-engineer every 6 months till something works
