    Pros

    This is a great place to get your career started or continue your career in the staffing industry!
    Offers you the opportunity to work with a great team that prides themselves on offering world class service to their client, Fidelity Investments.

    Cons

    Sometimes the client isn't as cost conscience as we would like them to be.

    Pros

    Veritude is a great place to start out of college. Fair pay (mostly), real world experience, fair bosses, talented staff, Fidelity employees treat you as one of their own. Working for Veritude will leave you as an attractive candidate on a resume if you end up not getting converted to Fidelity at some point and you will have no issue getting employment elsewhere, specifically if you are in IT. Pay is good, benefits are pretty poor. Depending on your location, if you work well you have a shot at being converted full time to Fidelity but again this depends on your higher ups so don't count on it. Job security depends on location and if your team likes you.

    Cons

    The health insurance is not acceptable and misleading. When I accepted the position, I was told the job had health insurance. I was mislead by the recruiter. It is not a true "health plan." It is a "Limited Medical Benefit Plan" from a company that is not even a health care provider. They provide life insurance. Essentially, the" health insurance" offered is terrible and if you need to go to a doctor runs out very quickly. It only pays a small fixed dollar amount. This is a great reason with health care so expensive to make employees still looking elsewhere while employed for Veritude. IF you at least offered us real insurance and not very watered down "health insurance" that one can't rely on then I wouldn't be looking for a full time job elsewhere with REAL insurance. Not even a match or a smudge of a contribution for 401K yet Fidelity employees who do the same job get the Cadillac benefit plan. I can see Veritude employees getting less but really, not even insurance?

    Advice to Management

    While the pay is fair and the management mostly treats you fairly, health care options Veritude Offers are unacceptable . I work very hard and know what I'm doing in my field, but because of the poor health insurance options, I am actively looking elsewhere for a job that will give me real health insurance. The plan offered here is not even a health plan, it's a weak, watered down "limited benefit medical plan" that will not take care of you if you have any medical problems what so ever. If you wish to retain good talent long term who will help your company grow and become more competitive in the 21st century, you must offer better health insurance at bare minimum. It is very unfair the garbage health insurance plan this company offers.

    Pros

    Foot in the door to Fidelity

    Cons

    Here is an review that was not solicited to increase our score.. Who you know club, lacking training for new candidates, management doesn't care about anything but impressing their boss, draconian policies compared to real Fidelity emloyees. The executive team from Fidelity needs to really see the what is going on under the hood and listen to the people doing the job, not what management says they are doing. They care about reports, that is it, not the employees. Some new employees are not given a fair and honest training as they are thrown under the bus by current employees, they put out to pasture. We have lost many great people, others are frustrated, and many are looking outside Veritude. Metrics put on TA are ridiculous, all to sell a tool to Fidelity to make us at veritude look better.
    HR? Avoid. Personal issues, bonus reviews, increases are all out in public. If you need confidentially then don't go to HR. You should hear what is discussed on the floor.
    Broken promises l, changing policies, and these new task metrics all make it a sweatshop.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes for the better now. The vendors beat us over and over again because they adapt and we don't. Add real growthy opportunities, make it a flexible environment for everyone, not just treating the groups bringing in revenue like trash.

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with, who are providing world class service to Fidelity! Our ability to find talent is a critical part of Fidelity’s overall success!

    Cons

    “Modernization” I would not call it a Con, but more of an ongoing effort to improve. Veritude continuously focuses on ways to modernize our process, tool and techniques we use to attract top talent.

    Pros

    Veritude has a seasoned management team with extensive industry knowledge in the staffing vertical and a passion for success at Fidelity Investments. Overall team has a unified vision of creating a culture of team work and support by the ability of groups to work very closely together and understand each others business and how it operates. Veritude provides the tools and environment as does Fidelity to participate in personal and skilled professional development to enhance one's career. A hard work ethic is rewarded well.

    Cons

    Limited - if you like to operate in fast paced environments that is results driven - this is a great place to join.

    Advice to Management

    I referred friends with extensive customer service experiencebut Fidelity/Veritude would not even give them an interview let alone a chance. Several good people could have really helped the company

    Pros

    Part of Fidelity, nice locations, some.good employee on staff

    Cons

    No advancement, outdated with the culture and pay structure, once you come on board you are stuck. Staffing is slow and getting beat by vendors so it's tough to make goals. HR rules the place and spills everyone's details, you know who is the favorites. So many unhappy people.are here and looking to make a move outside of the firm or direct to fidelity. Management doesn't listen, is more concerned with their image and reports than making real changes to better the company. Culture is bad, hr and tech can do whatever they want and TA is stuck in the office all the time. Business has changed but we are stuck with a poor model and dont look at market trends to keep employees happy. Lost a few good employees and others are fed up. Hopefully the new head of HR for fidelity can make some really needed changes he needs to look at this place and see what needs to change. Vendors keep taking my fills and that is all management cares about is making themselves look good and blaming the little grunts.

    Advice to Management

    Build a positive work environment make changes and don't let hr rule the place. Listen to employees instead of thinking they are nothing but useless.

    Pros

    Veritude is Fidelity's internal staffing firm which provides top notch talent to Fidelity. It's a great place to work and also a great way to get your foot in the door at Fidelity. Veritude is passionate about what they do and always work to ensure that the Associates are taken care of. Even if a Contract is scheduled to end, the team goes above and beyond to work to redeploy Associate's into other roles internally. The campus setting is beautiful and culture/environment is one that can't be matched. I highly recommend working for Veritude if given an opportunity.

    Cons

    No cons to share, phenomenal company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    The Leadership team is outstanding and always being innovative and strategic to better align the company with Fidelity's needs.
