    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time

    Pros

    Lots of global travel, good to work in a globally connected analyst team

    Cons

    very process driven, not always focused on true stock picking
    very management heavy, the layer of management is unneccesarily thick and bureaucratic

    Advice to Management

    reduce red tape, allow analysts more freedom to focus on stock picking and adding value for clients rather than following a formulaic process

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Starting pay and yearly merit reviews based on performance Lots of OT. The company match is 7%. You also get profit sharing. Health and college reimbursements. Company discounts to many companies - just say where you work and most of the time you get a discount.

    Cons

    Heavy volume call center - can’t sip water between calls. Didn’t hire enough people to fill in after many took the voluntary buy out package 6/2017.
    You’re expected to know everything that has changed and is changing and not all teams are unison in the messages that is announced. Branding - it’s huge - it’s bologna when you don’t even get a chance to get to know that person- and they don’t forget it no matter how many years have passed, what hardships you have been thru, and where you are now in work life. Fidelity allowed for managers and interim manager to bully associates. Managers have their clicks. You will get wrote up for using PTO when your truly sick.... depends who your manager is! You will get accused for something you didn’t do- bc your acting manager says you did- won’t pull the call up but purposely stops the audio to say call avoidance calls for immediate termination and I was escorted out. I transferred the caller to another associate and I never disconnected!

    Advice to Management

    Believe the associates when they call hr for being bullied by an acting manager! She won 3 days before my manager came back from maternity leave. It was 10 days before Christmas and 6.5 years of devoted tenure and got targeted when she stepped in and her head got big. I’ve never been in trouble before she stepped in. I was a great associate and I was full of knowledge and helpful to others. Completely flipped my life upside down. Sadly I keep thinking hr will call me back and offer my job back bc they finally realized what she did to me. It would be nice to get an apology from the director too. I know it will never happen but I did nothing wrong. She bullied me for 3 months and you guys believed her tricks she pulled on me. How many others will you let her do this to. Ohh wait - currently she is not a manager - she will always be a worthless team lead that no associate likes bc they have had a negative interaction with.
