    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and training. Lot's of support. The company has many more resources compared to rivals. If you don't have an answer, someone does.

    Cons

    Low transparency with career opportunities outside your field. The company offers many different career opportunities, but it is hard to see what they are outside your specific business unit.

    Advice to Management

    Better clarity on long term career paths

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

    Pros

    Private company. Salary and variable compensation. Good benefits. Largest retirement company in the US. Full suite of investment options. Discount broker with full service capabilities.

    Cons

    Depends on what department you work in. Expectations of goals that can be unattainable most times. High volume but expectations of personalized service don't always go hand in hand.

    Advice to Management

    Take in to account your employees strengths and look at building on to them so they can contribute in different ways, not everyone is of the same mold.

    Pros

    Great people and great company that cares about it's employees

    Cons

    Low compensation if you start without industry certifications

    Advice to Management

    On the retail side, there should be more promotion within. What's the point of hiring an entry level person, investing money in them, and then limiting their advancements because they started out their career

    Pros

    Good Mission, company cares about customers and employees. They are not a public company so they can make decisions without regard for pleasing shareholders. Solid benefits.

    Cons

    Disconnect between corp, market and branch. In my case, the company, the market wanted a focus on one thing and the branch sought to focus on something else. 'Don't worry what they want you to do..let me worry about that..just do what we ask you to do" ..Branch Manager's style was thru threats and intimidation. They seemed like they wanted to hire young, inexperienced recent graduates and groom them in the Fidelity way rather than bring in people with outside experience.
