I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Competitive salary, concerned about people, flexible work hours, work at home, challenging and interesting job, given the authority to make decisions, collaborative team.

Cons

Too much red tape to get things done, internal technology is flawed - systems down, conference rooms don't have latest equipment causing most meetings to start 10 minutes late; not the greatest communication of our benefits packages.

Advice to Management

Eliminate the bureaucracy and let us do our jobs.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many firms won't give you a salary while they sponsor you to get your broker's license- Fidelity does and also provides a very thorough study course. Supports employees immensely. Love the people- great environment. You might think call center and think of Office Space, but it's nothing like that. So much fun. Lots of opportunities for promotions and bonuses.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay the highest, but when combined with all the benefits and bonuses, I think it's worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Would love if the 5% pay bump in salary for promotions could be increased.

    Pros

    - Managers that care about your career and personal development
    - Great benefits - dollar per dollar match to 7% of salary in 401k - Having a ROTH 401k was a great attraction for me
    - Currently growing - Opportunities to move into your desired career path - Great for people who get hired on just to get in the door with a less desirable position
    - The company is big on following the kaizen philosophy
    - The company is moving a lot of positions from Boston to Westlake - Great growth opportunity as many of the Boston employees do not want to relocate - Not having a state income tax was probably a driver for the move

    Cons

    - Your desk moved frequently, within 6 months my team/department has relocated within the same building 2 times - I think they do this as it is the only way some people clean their desk
    - Slow moving changes
    - Lags behind industry changes - Needs to move faster with offering of ETF's

    Advice to Management

    - Allow employees to have self directed brokerage account even it it is only 25% of their 401k contributions
    - Offer student loan reimbursement as a benefit
