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

Pros

They have spent billions on the brand, and it worked, they spent billions on the tools, and they rock, the products are cheep and won't hurt anyone unless you lie to them in the sales process.

Cons

!Its a big company and if you are not aware of how you are perceived it could possibly hurt your chances to move up. This is not anything different from any other large company. To the people complaining about how they were passed over or done wrong, so sorry for you but getting ahead in life is about more than just how you think you did at your job, your bosses have feelings to and if you don't make them feel like they made a good decision (At any company) you will not get ahead.

In terms of the people in call centers and computer programming roles, well it is probably tough to stick out from the thousands of other people, but it is still a great company and they don't really expect too much of you from a performance standpoint so why complain about it. Just do your job and try to improve.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. The company is one of the best places for people to store their life savings and along the way a few employees souls get crushed. Move on and keep doing a good job! There is a reason so many people work here their entire lives.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, Flexible Hours, Competitive Pay, Volunteered Time Off, Competitive Bonus System

    Cons

    mo·not·o·nous IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT, Poor Bonus System, "Middle School Reward System", Poor Technology, Lazy Co-workers. Brown Nosed Stuck Up Arrogant individuals thinking they are better than you because they are "managers of a call center." The hiring process does not make you aware that this is ENTIRELY a PHONE JOB! BE AWARE OF WHAT YOUR GETTING YOURSELF INTO!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people on the front line, not managers you hire from the outside that have never performed the job! Treat people like they are adults, not in middle school! Example...Retaining thousands of dollars for the company on a daily basis and being rewarded with a "bag of chips, or candy bar" and a thank you from your manager.
