fast paced and lots to learn
Stock Broker (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHFebruary 21, 2018
Fidelity is a highly structured company. You spend a lot of time on the phone dealing with customers. All of you work time is monitored and you have to meet certain quotas. Weekend work is required unless you have a lot of seniority.
Pros
taught me a lot about investing, good for someone who likes sales
Cons
weekend work is required

Investment Sales and Solutions Representative (Current Employee) –  Merrimack, NHFebruary 19, 2018
hard to move up and you could feel like you get stuck if you aren't able to move up quickly. Also, the job can be a grind that is not fulfilling. Also required to work overtime and it can burn you out extremely fast.

Fund Accounting Analyst III (Current Employee) –  Merrimack, NHFebruary 17, 2018
Average job that sucks your soul, pays at about a B+ level, with A+ benefits. Great place to work for the right person, but completely draining if you're not the perfect fit.

Senior Technical Writer (Former Employee) –  Merrimack, NHFebruary 16, 2018
Brilliant people who work in fear of retribution against them. That's an excellent description. I experience people "tatting" on others who were doing no wrong (really? What was this, 3rd grade?), and managers who walked the aisle-ways conducting bed checks. Too petty for me, but the money was good.
Pros
compensation
Cons
workplace intimidation.

Compliance Intern (Former Employee) –  Westlake, TXFebruary 13, 2018
A typical day working at Fidelity involved arriving from the 7:30 to 8:30 time window. Depending on the day one would have one to two meetings that were short and relevant to one's work. After meeting one would work on individual assignment until end of workday.

Great Company - Pay isn't up to market standards
Senior Conversion Analyst (Current Employee) –  Covington, KYFebruary 13, 2018
This is a great company to work for unless you're looking for a nice salary. They have wonderful benefits and lots of opportunity, but they don't pay their employees to fit their abilities/competencies.

Institutional Publishing Manager (Current Employee) –  Smithfield, RIFebruary 12, 2018
It is an amazing company to work for, I think I just got into the wrong group of management. Not enough empowering of associates and micromanaging. I do not want to leave, just want a better fit for me.

Senior Assistant to Management (Former Employee) –  Smithfield, RIFebruary 12, 2018
I would work here again if I could, but I can't since It took the buyout. Since there are many companies within the overall Company, you have more opportunities to move into other positions in the Company.
