No opinion of CEO

I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

They offer the most cost-effective financial product solutions. Very focused on customer-service and have some of the best employee benefits a private company could offer.

Cons

Extremely political environment for managers in their call centers. Pay for managers is horrible. When financial crisis hit in late 2008 they quickly lost my confidence as an employee-centric company as they unloaded a ton of people and talent. They also cut employees pay in a massive way.

Advice to Management

Ditch the politics. I have never seen an environment as political as the one that is at Fidelity Investments.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some very good employees but they lack any real understanding of the business. They are too busy trying to manage the poltical atmosphere in order to protect thier jobs.

    Cons

    Too political. Sr. management has no clue as to what needs to be done to make the company successful. Not a proactive culture to solving business issues.
