    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.

    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.

    Great employees! Great benefits! Great 401k plans!

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits and relatively steady job as long as you work.

    Cons

    It gets very old very quickly. Managers are only concerned with getting the work finished and not about properly developing or giving opportunities to grow.

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

    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.

    Former Employee - Vice President in Boston, MA
    Approves of CEO

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and stable income.

    Cons

    It’s an assembly line of 400 client households rotating through, while doing your own prospecting and a lot of account maintenance babysitting. The time available for client relationships/retention and sales is minimal and unsustainable.

    Advice to Management

    400 households per advisor is a poor sales and retention business model.
