    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great overall company. Benefits are best in the industry. Company is well managed with integrity and long focused business plan (due to the company still being privately owned by the Johnsons). Work/Life Balance, 10% profit share at year end and 7% 401k match is top notch. Salaries paid are decent, in line with competition.

    Cons

    Management is constantly micromanaging and breathing down your neck. Every single dial and metric is closely scrutinized. Because fees and price compression have taken a deep hold on the retail brokerage industry, management has been raising monthly goals for years. It can feel like a hamster wheel with no end in sight
