I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time

Pros

I worked in IT. My immediate team was nice, the pay was good, and I didn't work every weekend. My job was ok. To do my job took wayyyy longer than it needed to take.

Cons

I think the culture is competitive to the point that people don't readily share knowledge. They hide it from each other in order to make themselves look better. That kind of behavior doesn't help a company move forward. They are also way too conservative and never want to take responsibility. Instead, they make decisions by consensus so that no one is to blame if something goes wrong.

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

    Pros

    The training you receive at a job says a lot about your employer, and Fidelity invests a lot of time and resources in their new employees. Throughout your training there are constant opportunities to sit down with your on-boarding manager to talk about your progress and career development, including what direction you want to take after your current position. It's almost as if Fidelity wants you to improve and move onto bigger and better opportunities within the company more than you do.

    Cons

    At the start there is a lot of time commitment that you need to make outside of the workplace. Getting securities licensed takes a lot of time at work and a lot of time at home. If that's not something you are used to or don't have available it can be a big adjustment.
