    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, happy people, good work life balance, great pay, fantastic job training,

    Cons

    Lack of leadership in management, no career progression, very little training after you are “on the job” after finishing their training program. Not many internal job opportunities. Most managers are just reps with more experience so not a lot of true management experience.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more career prospects, increase the amount of training available for employees, need stronger leadership.

  3. "Great place to work and amazing benefits"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Systems Analyst in Boston, MA
      Approves of CEO

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

      Pros

      The benefits are great and there is a lot of career mobility.

      Cons

      Many people have been there for 30+ years and are stuck in their ways. Management wants to innovate and change, but it is harder for employees to actually get on board.

      Pros

      Great employees! Great benefits! Great 401k plans!

      Cons

      There are limited remote positions. New leadership makes changes without consideration for impact on employees or customers.

      Advice to Management

      Keep employees happy and your clients will stay happy.

        Positive Outlook
        Approves of CEO

        I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        Benefits, people, company really cares, work environment, outings, breaks and lunches whenever, treat you like an adult. Sign on bonus if licensed and when you get licensed. Flextime during training.

        Cons

        Getting licensed is brutal. It is like taking 10 college classes in 2 months. No work life balance. Schedules are mostly nights and weekends, but pay more for shifts sceduled in off hours. Pay should be higher for what we know and do. They demand licensing bonus back of $2500 if you leave or quit within a year. Some managers act like they care, but don't. Not much room to advance in call centers.

        Advice to Management

        Make licensing training longer so it is not so mentally draining and stressful. Covering entire books in a couple of days and expecting us to master it then move on is not feasible for some who do not have finance degrees and who have families. Work and training schedule is too demanding at times.
