Cons

sometimes it is difficult to navigate across business units

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The Pay was good compared to the S. Ohio / N. Kentucky area as a whole. Benefits were good as well.

    Cons

    As has been stated in various reviews on this site, if you are too intelligent, attractive, or bring sound business experience with you to the role, expect to be shunned eventually if not immediately. In the S. Ohio/N. Kentucky region there are not many opportunities, even for college graduates so its easy to scare the majority into conforming into whatever management requires at the time. Where else can they go? This was true even before the world blew up.

    They will hire minorities but they expect them to be docile, weak and just smart enough to do what is asked of them. No matter how smart you are, if you are a black male you have little chance of making any real progress. Of course there are the "tokens" to make things look good on the surface. Once a manager even sent out an email to his team that had a Martin Luther King speech in it that said the Negro was still not free. Imagine that in this day and age. This kind of behavior is condoned in Covington Kentucky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity training should be mandatory. These people need a lot of help in this area. Never seen a group of people in such a large company with such strong racial biases. How does a national company like Fidelity allow this
