Great experience working at Fidelity
Senior Trading Help Desk Specialist (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLDecember 15, 2014
Fidelity treats people fairly and strives always to be the best in everything they do. They are constantly growing and learning and encourage self-actualization in their employees. The corporate culture is rich and wonderful, and I would recommend anyone entering the industry to go to Fidelity. They set the standard for excellence in brokerage.

Enjoy working with all management and staff - a very friendly environment.
Admin.Assistant/ Project Coord./ Event Planner (Current Employee), Nashua, NHDecember 12, 2014
Every day is something new!
I learned that employees do need a lot of different things on a daily basis. They also need to know that whatever it is, is important.
The management here is the greatest. Very helpful and very pleasant.
My co-workers treat me with respect. I have a great repore with all of them.
The most enjoyable part of this job, is everything – more... I do and who I do it for. There is not one thing I like better than the other. I have many "hats" here, and I can honestly say, I like them all! – less

Typical Call Center Environment
Financial Representative (Former Employee), Covington, KYDecember 8, 2014
A typical day as a service representative involves being on the phone continually. During peak season, all off-phone activities are usually cancelled -- such as team meetings, coaching, trainings, ect.

Hardest part of the job is that while on the phone, you have no idea what the next call could bring. Some calls are relatively easy and wrap up quickly. – more... Other calls are time-consuming as it requires contacting multiple departments just to figure out where to direct a customer.

Also, the "open" work space is extremely distracting, especially in a call center environment. You are typically seated at a desk that is one side of a five-desk wall unit, meaning you are frequently in the midst of others also talking on the phone. Even worse, when others get up to take a break and bump you while you are on a call. For that reason, the environment may be a hindrance for anyone who relishes personal space and privacy. It does not exist at Fidelity.

Most enjoyable part of the job is learning about the market and really feeling as if you helped a customer by navigating a tricky trade or understanding why something has happened in his/her account. – less

Industry Leader with Strong Culture and Proven Results
Vice President, HR Shared Services (Current Employee), Merrimack, NHDecember 8, 2014
Pros: singular focus on quality and excellence
Fidelity Investments is a tremendous place to work - filled with smart, articulate and driven people who take pride in high-quality work and a focus on the end customer in all things.

The work environment rewards diligence, preparation and collaboration as well as a willingness to present more than one approach to a solution.

The margin for error – more... is slim, and that creates, sometimes, a very competitive environment.

Fidelity is an excellent employer - forward-thinking, tech-savvy and dominates a very competitive landscape. – less

It's a job
Financial Representative (Former Employee), Merrimack, NHDecember 1, 2014
Working at Fidelity was a job for me, not a career. There is a lot of talk upon being hired that there is plenty of opportunity for advancement, but it's entirely in a call center. Moving up is very difficult after the first bump, and most desirable destinations are being competed for by every other person from the call center. In addition, it's very – more... difficult to move up if you lack sales skills (or desire). Even though the position isn't primarily sales based, there are goals that you must exceed if you expect to advance your career there. If you have worked in a call center before, and don't mind the high regulations of what you do with your time, then it may be the job for you. Competition is huge at Fidelity- within your team and against other teams. You absolutely must be competitive to enjoy this job. – less

A good place to start a career in finance
Non Qualified Plan Services Lead (Current Employee), Westlake, TXNovember 20, 2014
Discussing benefits plans with customers and assisting customers in developing retirement plans. Maintaining on phone time stats for call center reps.

Management style can vary across teams.

There is opportunity for advancement. It is easy to get a role where you can obtain industry licenses, but it can be tough to break out of the call center role.
