    I worked at Fidelity Investments (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company with lots of opportunity for advancement and career changes with god benefits, and good pay. I worked at the company for over 10 years and learned a lot about retail and B2B investments. Have a few FINRA licenses (24,65, 63, 7, 31, and Insurance) and was working towards my CFP that was supported and sponsored. There are also lots of internal and OTJ trainings. Plenty of great people and some pretty awesome financial industry leaders. It's a privately owned company so if they want to pursue something they don't have to get the stock holder's buy in and they allow the employees to provide input on a lot of the process and employee engagement improvements that are currently in place. Overall it's a very dynamic culture constantly changing.

    Cons

    Super lager company so you could feel like just another worker and that your voice doesn't count. At times the hiring process when moving between roles can be a bit monotonous (in that it's a hurry up to wait months situation). Overall it's a very dynamic culture and constantly changing so if change is not what you like this probably isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, continue to involve the employee and try and be more transparent with future plans as well as potential institutional clients

    Pros

    The benefits are unsurpassed. From student loan aid, 401k matching and amazing health insurance; it's very hard to find another employer who comes close
