Pros

The Financial Representative position is a fantastic entry level position at Fidelity. It exposes you to customer's fears and educates you on how to fix them. Expects you to get your licensing exams in a timely fashion with tremendous support. Overall, this experience laid the foundation for my career in financial services, would recommend it to anyone graduating.

Cons

Repetitive. Almost too lax of a culture, professional standard sways

Advice to Management

Reward talent. Start a mentor system

    "Love this place in 1999. It is a completely different company to work for in 2011."

    Pros

    a) Benefits - Medical, Vacation and 401k Match

    Cons

    I am not sure what happen between 1999 and 2011, but this place is completely different. They treat their US employees like cattle that they can move to any location in the US to save a dollar and they think we will all follow like little lambs. How much money does the Johnson family need? Boston is where they made this company what it is today, and now they are leaving. They say it is not due to costs - but is clearly is the reason.

    There are minimal promotion opportunities for the hard-working employee. Only those who play politics get anywhere at Fidelity. It forced the people who really get the work done to look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Stop moving employees around the country. Look at your talent and take care of them. So many talented people have left this firm to go elsewhere because they were not recognized.
