Featured Review

Current Employee - Agile Coach

I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for less than a year

Pros

Lots of smart people Excellent Benefits and compensation Very good work life balance

Cons

It's a very big organization and it can be complicated to maneuver around within different business lines

Advice to Management

Keep doing the excellent work. Please promote empowerment so people are not afraid to talk to their Senior management.

Former Employee - Senior Associate

I worked at Dimensional Fund Advisors full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The people at Dimensional are top notch - some of the most intelligent people I've ever worked with, and there isn't much in the way of egotistical or aggressive behavior, which makes for a great... working environment. Most people are approachable, regardless of level, and there isn't a huge emphasis on hierarchy, meaning it's not uncommon for an entry-level analyst to speak with a senior leader. Dimensional is refreshingly ethical and the firm genuinely cares about its clients. Every company will say they act in the interest of clients, but Dimensional truly operates in this way.

Cons

Workplace flexibility could be better. Unlike most of the industry, there isn't an expectation that employees work excessively long hours; however, the flexibility to manage when you come/go each day... is lacking. The firm has progressed in this space in recent years, but more improvement is needed.
