    "Great benefits, too much office politics, no concern for employee's mental health"

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Work environment is casual. If you like investing and financial industry, you might be happy.

    Cons

    Though the possiblity of starting in customer service and growing into other roles is highly used as a selling point in the beginning, it is nearly impossible to actually do it due to the office politics. Layoffs or forced resignations have become the norm- they are always trying to do more work with less heads. Finally, if you have any kind of personal crisis, it's fine for a day or two. but if it affects your mental health and ends up causing long-term issues...good luck! You'll likely be PIP'd out of there in no time. As for the work/life balance they are currently advertising, the flexibility is a joke if you have a family. Yes, it's flexible for the young, childless demographic, but if you need true flexibility, steer clear!

    Former Employee - IT Product Development in Boston, MA

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1. Above Average Pay Mostly. Great Benefits! Great Retirement. Match 100% of your contributions up to 7% after a year and 5-year vesting program. Plus a 10% profit sharing contribution each January! Tuition Reimbursement and more. 2. Numerous different business units and sub-groups, many different career paths, multiple locations. Working remote up to 100% a possibility for many positions (off-phone), depending on business group. 3. Mostly good opportunities to improve your skills and knowledge. 4. Massive population to network.

    Cons

    1. Bureaucracy still reigns. Common Sense doesn't always prevail. The simplest things are made complicated... Every time a new senior leader arrives, there is a re-org or re-alignment... They say associates have a voice and they do survey associates, but if you speak up otherwise, do so at your own risk... 2. The company is making great strides towards improving career mobility but many legacy barriers remain in place, including attitudes of hiring managers and their superiors. 3. Very conservative company when it comes to risk...decisions are made by "committee" after exhaustive discussions, even over the most smallest and trivial things. Many times your work gets trapped by becoming all about the process and not the outcome. 4. Top Heavy. Appears to be a large population in the lower pay grades, but very few in the middle (managers, sr. managers), and an enormous Director, VP, and above segment. The top segment is all about taking care of each other when not competing or fighting one another. 5. Unless you sexually harass someone or get caught stealing something, no one gets fired unless it's an overall reduction in force. Lazy or inept associates are coddled or passed along.
