    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, paid training and they pay for your licensing.

    Cons

    The company promotes reps into management and most of the reps should not be in management. The managers aren't required to have a college degree and are more of trading specialist rather than managers. If you get stuck with a bad manager your career development is shattered.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting the best traders into management and start looking at the ability to lead and manage a team as the people to promote.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are lots of learning in the form of training and cross-training available. Is an industry leader so it looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    Lots of changes since 9/11, this includes ongoing layoffs and job relocations. Lots of cliques and special treatment for some. Hard to move up and advance for others.

    Advice to Management

    Think more about the employees as human beings and not just numbers. Forcing great employees to resign because they cannot relocate.
