I have been working at Fidelity TalentSource as a contractor (Less than a year)
You get a foot in the door at fidelity. The pay is pretty good at least for my group. I was able to negotiate a higher pay rate when i started. Everyone is professional and very friendly that i have experienced. Ive actually lucked out because i was only brought on for a 3 month contract but one of the long term contractors left so ive slid into his spot. Ive already had my contract renewed for another 3 months.
If they arent going to renew your contract they give you 30 days notice whether they are going to extend, let the contract run out, or bring you on full time.
Everyone in my department was brought on with veritude and is now full time so there is a good track record with that in my area. I also have real training which alot of places dont do anymore.
Being contract mostly its the benefits but that is expected . The healthcare is a joke. I couldnt even get a flu shot paid for and that was with the paid mass plan. You also have no time off but if you contract for 6 months which is 2000 hours you get an extra week of pay which is kind of like a week off. These are negatives but again if you have contracted in the past this should be expected.
Advice to Management
There is too much variance with departments in regards to temp to perm. Ive heard of people contracting for a few years and that can be stressful. If you are working for a year then you should be brought on full time, no exceptions. This is due to veritude being owned by fidelity. If you are going to have people contract for more than a year than you need better benefits.

I applied online. I interviewed at Fidelity TalentSource (Merrimack, NH) in November 2019.
I applied at Fidelity Investments talent acquisition manager suggestion after I didn't pass their test during the hiring process. A recruiter called me the next day, spoke with me for 20 minutes and said she'd call me in 24 to 48 hours to set up the phone interview. She never called and never responded to my messages. Very disappointing experience.
