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

Pros

Fidelity offers plenty of opportunities to grow, and rise in the ranks. Their benefits are one of the top reasons to stay at Fidelity. They really value their employees, and try to make sure they are being taken care of. Their pay is good, although not the best out there. They don't require you to work as many hours as other investments firms to make more money.

Cons

Fidelity has certain career paths are that almost set in stone. There isn't a whole lot of deviation from what they've outlined as the path you need to take to move upward. It would be good if management would recognize the efforts in other divisions, and reward those that are doing well with opportunities for advancement.
You almost have to work quite a bit of overtime in order to stand out as a top performer. There is no 40-hour work weeks for the successful there. They do pay OT however, so the pay is nice if you have the time to work the extra hours.

Advice to Management

It would be good to add some hours for volunteer time that would be paid. Fidelity is big on community involvement, but they expect you to do that stuff on the weekends.

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

    Pros

    A privately owned thriving large company that is always trying to improve, not afraid to take risks and grow in new directions. It's essentially a meritocracy so if you are willing to work hard and be flexible you can succeed with it. Industry comparable salary and good benefits, a decent work environment overall.

    Cons

    If you don't like the organizational structure you are working in, just wait 6 months and it will change.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to ideas coming from the ground up (the company is doing better in this regard, still needs to improve)

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

    Pros

    People as well as the opportunities to change roles within the company. Everyone here seems to work hard and their are few shortfalls with the benefits that we receive. It has personally led me to grow as an individual as well as gain valuable experience in the financial services industries. I personally feel lucky that I had the opportunity to work at such a wonderful company and hope to continue my career here for years to come.

    Cons

    Can be stressful with the workload, half the time it seems like your in meetings receiving work than you are actually doing work. Will have to work late hours a lot to make up for the work you could not complete during the day and sometimes you are working 60 hour weeks to keep up with the demand. It is manageable but it can lead to stress, less sleep and worrying. The paycheck does make up for this however as they are a company that does pay pretty well.
