    I have been working at Veritude full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    Veritude has been a great place to work. The fact that the company is owned by Fidelity Investments, makes working at Veritude a tremendous opportunity for every level of individual. Because Veritude only hires for Fidelity, they're able to approach every potential candidate with a number of opportunities that fit their background. All of Veritude's job openings begin on a consultant-based project assignment, but a lot of these positions are long-term in length and have the opportunity to go full-time. As an employee of Veritude, I've seen them really help individuals further their careers and provide fantastic opportunities. For people looking to start their career at Fidelity Investments, Veritude is here to help you.

    Cons

    Nothing much for Cons. As stated above, Veritude and Fidelity together provide a great opportunity to every individual

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

    Pros

    Veritude , Fidelity Investments internal staffing group, has been a terrific place of employment for me over the last 19 years. Veritude has given me great opportunities, has strong values and is a place of innovation and growth inside Fidelity Investments. There is a strong sense of teamwork here, and it is hard to match the overall "can do" approach to opportunities. Highly recommended.

    Cons

    Fidelity Investments has been a great employer for me overall, but the Veritude group has been exceptional.

    Advice to Management

    Management at Veritude is comprised of people with many years of experience in the Staffing Industry. At Veritude the Management Team has previously done your desk as an employee, and understands it well. The Management Team needs to keep doing what they are doing. This is a successful environment.

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

    Pros

    I started working at Veritude as a consultant and had the opportunity to convert to a FTE role at Fidelity. The opportunity as a consultant provided me the ability to show my value, perform at high level and be rewarded for these services. Veritude works hard to provide a great experience to their associates from day one with recruitment, through the life cycle of being hired along with their HR team and the orientation program they have in place. Veritude consistently stays in touch with their employees and puts their employees first

    Cons

    No cons, The companies Veritude and Fidelity , do so many things correct and truly value their employees

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you do. It works

    I have been working at Veritude full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Continual and constant work, location, parking garage. If you are lucky enjoyable co-workers and manager.

    Café is nice as food is ok.

    Cons

    They will suck you in with the 6mth contract then after 6mths tell you they renew every 3mth. Be whery of this bait and switch method!!!!

    You are no more than a paid slave. Unless you are proactive and want to be converted to a full time employee position and aggressive for yourself it will never happen.

    Do not expect to be treated the same as fte, contractors are not allowed to attend any corp events including health fair or holiday party, etc.

    You are excluded from any corp communications regarding business however you are expected to cover fte associates regularly and work beyond job requirements within a 40hrs and if you have to work beyond 40 you are told not to record hrs as it will reflect bad on org budget. So you are working for free. Also told to cover all India holidays to allow offshore associates on call time off and not get paid.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate contract period and convert contractors after 18 months .also reevaluate how contractors are treated.

    I worked at Veritude full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    none, they don't care about you at all, you are DISPOSABLE

    Cons

    Low pay, will not get your full time hours, will not train you when you ask. Only care about their bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Put more time into the people you already have instead of laying off hundreds of employees, then hiring new people into positions not a month later. Figure out who is on what team and stop scrambling to figure out what's going on, only AFTER people start gossiping. Care more.
