    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fidelity is a company that truly cares about their employees. They offer very competitive salaries and other benefits. You'll find many different specialty areas under their one financial industry brand, so there is something for almost anyone.

    Cons

    As with any Lare worldwide company, there are pockets of poor management, but they do a decent job of reorganizing from time to time to address those types of issues.

    Advice to Management

    Be conscious that all employees deserve the same level of respect, and favouritism can negatively effect the dynamic of an entire team.

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

    Pros

    Trustworthy company, professional atmosphere, good benefits (401K match, profit sharing, bonuses and more), good people. In Covington KY location - on site medical office, full cafeteria (breakfast, grill, deli, salad bar, entrees and Starbucks coffee), on site gym, no dress code, beautiful campus

    Cons

    Can be hard to get hired, temp if you have to, but don't give up if it's what you want. Best way to get in the door without temping is to be willing to work a phone shift. If you can get in the door, you can have a fulfilling career here.

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

    Pros

    -tiered pay structure for upper level sales roles
    -atmosphere and culture

    Cons

    -Sales and guidance dominated- if you want to explore/focus on other areas of the financial services/asset management industry such as research, portfolio management, etc. there isn't such an avenue to take through Fidelity directly.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the representatives speaking with the clients, top-down will only get you so far.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fidelity hires from financial and non-financial backgrounds, so the workplace is pretty diverse in that regard. I think that adds to the outstanding culture they have going on there. Benefits are amazing: 7% 401(k) match and up to 10% profit sharing after a few years. Covington campus is open, inviting, and has many relaxation amenities (walking trails, ping-pong in break rooms, relaxation rooms). Casual dress code. CEO is beloved. Quick promotions and ability to relocate pretty much anywhere in the country.

    Cons

    Call center...expect some really disheartening encounters.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Hire and support the best people, most ethical company I have ever worked for, great benefits, really want their associates to succeed.

    Cons

    Perhaps a little too conservative but I believe that is driven by their commitment to ethical behavior. Can't even discuss NCAA brackets at work for fear of disciplinary action
