    Pros

    Benefits... 7% 401k match, 10% profit sharing, good health insurance along with $1000 in HSA money each year given to you, fitness reimbursement.

    Cons

    Call center environment. Constantly on phone and can be mentally and emotionally exhausting. Hard to move to position that is not on phones.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    In my role, the work / life balance seems to be good. Nobody bothers you. Very flexible. Corporate seems to be doing a great job.

    Cons

    Training seems to be inconsistant. Nobody seems to be on the same page. The people are not friendly and can be jerks at times, arrogant and cold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the weakest link is the unfriendliness of my coworkers. I am shocked at the coldness of the people I have to spend most of my time with. It is a big dissapointment to me and it shouldn't be like this. I think a great way to improve this would be to implement some team building exercises. You don't have to spend too much time on this. Just something to better connect you with your coworkers. It is hard to dive for a ball in the stands for teamates that don't respect you.

    Pros

    Great sales environment. Focus on clients needs first and the process of talking to clients in order to hit goals. Also best products in the industry so makes selling pretty easy.

    Cons

    Long hours on the phone. Need to be focussed and have good stamina but it is still a fun grind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Great talent at most of the management positions which has a trickle down effect on employees.

    Pros

    Great company that really focuses on developing employees and providing them with a good work/life balance. This is a great place to start your career and get experience working for a large private company.

    Cons

    The biggest con that I have about the company is the low compensation. The benefits are amazing but in order to be even remotely competitive you have to consider the big picture of 401k and medical insurance which is nice but it will not pay the bills.
