    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Fidelity has vast opportunities in Finance, Technology and many other areas. The ability to stay within a firm and move to a new position that is fresh and exciting is something that always kept my intrigue.

    Cons

    It is a complex organization which lends itself to an intense environment that isn't right for every individual.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in your employees that they will do what's right for their customers. Allow them the freedom to stumble and learn and not be reprimanded for their targeted/focused risks.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many business units have authentic genuine leadership that does the right thing the right way. Find your way to those couple of groups. The rest are overworked and have little incentive to stay.

    Cons

    Non client facing groups are treated very poorly. Overtime is very high because those groups don’t have exposure to customers so their headcount targets are insanely low. Some of that is understandable but here the disparity in the treatment of people in those business units is beyond unfair. Senior leaders run those groups with a “bully” mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smart genuine leaders for all your business units....even the non client facing ones.
