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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great work-life balance. Certain managers really care about your career path. Great place to grow. Friendly fun environment.

    Cons

    Raises and pay are luck of the draw based on BU/manager personality. Promotions are near impossible to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Merit based promotions and clear objective goals.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Progressive company trying to reinvent itself for the new age of financial services. Great benefits and comp packages

    Cons

    Some administrative areas of the firms are still in the old culture and haven’t been transformed. Additional senior executive need to be mobilized. Still a lot of passive aggressiveness and clicks, limited transparency and openness. Too focused on who likes you. Other BUs that are revenue focused are in a much better place.

    Advice to Management

    Focused more on culture and true mobility within the mid to senior leadership role with tools and program that truly get at the challenges in leveraging the talents across the firm. Else risk loosing more great people.

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

    Pros

    - great benefits - flexible work schedule (depending on your team, you could have the opportunity to work from home) - lots of training opportunities - a culture that encourages career growth and movement - no dress code, definitely a relaxed company that's focused on what matters: the customers and the services

    Cons

    - some benefits take up to a year to kick in - base pay could be more competitive - leadership expects folks at the team level to be agile, but they don't drive agility amongst themselves - there's little communication among upper management to each other on what their teams are working on to prevent duplication of efforts... you could probably find 3 or 4 tools across the BUs that do the same exact thing

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you're taking steps to be agile, too. People cannot be "agile" and have strict deadlines at the same time. All that leads to is cutting corners and bad quality software. Setting goals are completely fine, but be flexible and make sure not EVERYTHING is a high priority... weigh initiatives against each other, then decide what pieces are high priority versus medium versus low. Your dev teams will thank you...

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

    Pros

    We don't need to cold call customer they just walk in to see us because of our name recognition. The pay and benefits are great too.

    Cons

    It's definitely a boys club. As a women right out of school at my first job I have been sexually harassed weekly here, and no one in branch sees a problem with it. They all just think that that's how these specific men act. I reported it to HR and the solution was to move me to another branch (our satellite which is much worse) or to move me out of state.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more women and minorities within branches, and promote more to management. Regional directors and middle managers are all men.
