    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Respectful, Inclusive Workplace! Fidelity encourages anyone to bring up to someone you trust about something someone did or said that made you uncomfortable and Fidelity has no tolerance for inappropriate and disrespectful behavior! -Since COVID 19 hit 99% of this company works from home! (This position allowed working from home 2 days out of the week before COVID happened.) -Work from home but not alone! Excellent technology giving you all the tools you need to be successful and feel connected with you coworkers and managers. -Flex time! With this position getting one planned paid hour off a week. ( i.e Getting off at 4 instead of 5 on Friday and getting paid that hour. What company does that? - VERY STABLE! When companies during COVID-19 are laying off people this company is hiring. Most businesses get busy in the summer while this company gets busy in the winter. -Free Essential Health Insurance - Job Advancement! The Career Center is dedicated in giving you resources for job advancement where the people associated are there to help you obtain a job you want within Fidelity. - Plenty of other Pros!

    Cons

    Call center work is repetitive. (You have to really fish for cons to find them with a great company like this)

    Pros

    Flexibility in timings. Not much stress in work. Depends on team though

    Cons

    They will just say innovation. But all are just for showcase. Management just works for achieving goals and actually not thinking about real use product. And they hire graduates from NIT,IIT and give same provide same salary as an experienced person though the former has very less work and less efficient in work.
