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

    Pros

    Solid Benefits, flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Annual increases are small, and promotions typically only provide a minimal raise (exceptions with certain business units). Pay may be high getting in the door, but the trajectory will quickly plateau.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation tends to benefit low functioning employees who are satisfied doing the bare minimum in exchange for decent benefits and stability. Shake it up--get rid of the dead weight and provide better incentive for top performers to stay around.


  2. "Phone sites good, branches bad"

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, excellent training and if you are working in one of the large sites, there is lots of opportunity for movement. Pay isn't based on commission and Fidelity has a great pipeline for business so the leads come to you.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than at other firms and the company is super conservative. Guidance and recommendations will be based on tools with almost zero actual input from the financial reps themselves. If you want to interact with clients, you'll either be on the phones or in a branch. The branches have very little room for advancement and depending on the manager, can be very frustrating and demoralizing. Average tenure for an Account Executive is less than a year due to attrition.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within in order to increase job satisfaction. Employees work hard to advance and when they don't, they will leave.
