    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (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.

    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 (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Facilities and pay. Growth opportunities and some flexible work from home opportunity.

    Cons

    The teams are oftentimes run by very young adults, many first time people managers. Lots of favoritism, inappropriate fraternizing and questionable unprofessional behavior. Most Senior Management is more professional. Very good experiences with older management.

    Advice to Management

    Do 360 reviews that are anonymous. Have senior leadership closely review them.
