    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Please read cons and change

    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 have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits including profit sharing and bonuses are great. The breadth of this company provides a great opportunity to try out different career paths or boost your current one.

    Cons

    In my current role, I am working overtime more often than I'd like with recognition that seems to only go so far until it sizzles out. That may be tied to the size of the company itself, where promotions work in a "trickle down" manner.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. I like the direction Abby is taking this company. I think sticking to our current principles will turn out to be a big success.

    Pros

    Great company to work for if you want a stable income and slowly grow your income over time

    Cons

    if you're in sales your commissions are capped and they have one of the weirdest bonus structures ever.

    Advice to Management

    Change commission structure so reps have more incentive to sell

    Current Employee - Customer Relationship Advocate in Westlake, TX

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great and honest company that cares about its employees and it’s clients. High pay and numerous bonus opportunities through out the year. Extensive benefits package. Fidelity wants to help you succeed and grow in your career!

    Cons

    The Customer Relationship Advocate position itself is the most draining role at Fidelity Investments. It has the most turnover, not because of Fidelity, but because you are a customer service agent via call center that services over 10 types of accounts, and you’re a stock broker. You deal with about 50-70 clients a day and 90% of them do not understand their accounts and/or the stock market. Because it is a call center,...

    Advice to Management

    Fidelity does a great job hiring people people, because you can’t train to be a people person. But they motivate primarily with money. Although money is a nice reward (via bonuses), using extrensic values to satisfy intrinsic value employees does not work long term.
