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

    Pros

    I will say that the Series 7 training that they provide is excellent. Ok for a year, if it's your first job out of college.

    Cons

    Upper management does a great cheer-leading bit but the real world is quite different. Every move you make is recorded and monitored, if you make a rookie mistake they make you feel terrible, very little praise without a "but". Lot's of nitpicking criticism. You have no time to socialize because every minute is accounted for. The work itself is ok but quite a grind when you average 50 calls a day with only 2 15 min. breaks. Grueling for little pay.

    Advice to Management

    You work people to death, for sub-par wages. Then you criticize and berate employees for every little thing. The only reason you have good retention is that the economy is terrible for jobs. When this changes you will see a mass exodus.

    Be careful for cut throat competition
