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

Pros

There are a lot of very challenging, rewarding, and lucrative roles within the company. If you find yourself in the right business unit at the right time Fidelity can be an amazing place to work. While base salaries seem low, if you are in a role where you are compensated on performance (commission, cash bonus, stock awards) you can find yourself making a great living with a great work / life balance as compared to the rest of the industry.

Cons

Entry level and back office employees are not paid very much and are not eligible for many of the performance based compensation incentives (stock awards, cash bonuses etc.). This means that if you find yourself in the position of being dependent upon one of these people to do your job, you are frequently greeted with either incompetence or apathy.

Advice to Management

Open up monetary performance incentives to more job roles. Even the back office employees should have some skin in the game.

    Pros

    Good place to start a career, but you can begin to feel like you are stuck in a position with little upward mobility

    Cons

    There is a lot of micro-managing by middle management and constant change.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more control and empower them to make more decisions
