Great company, great culture, will work you to death
Financial Service's Manager (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLJuly 6, 2015
Pros: Flexibility
Cons: Politics within building are a nightmare, Senior leaders don't leave, only get promoted if you're in sales
Overall Fidelity is an amazing company to work for. This site is awful. The politics within the building are a nightmare. From the rep level all the way to Senior management. Even if you start as a rep and end up in management if you don't go to sales your pretty much stuck in a consistent position will your employees are churned out from under you like a production line. The work load doesn't match the pay.

Retirement Brokerage Services Full Trader (Former Employee), Merrimack, NHJune 30, 2015
Pros: Great benefits, fair pay.
Cons: Phone center, little freedom.
If you are alright working in a phone center this is a great place to learn. I was able to get my series 7 and 63 licenses. Also the Merrimack location has an awesome cafe.

Financial Representative - Service & Trading (Former Employee), Merrimack, NHJune 30, 2015
Pros: Growth, learning, and excellent benefits package.
Fidelity Investments has truly been my favorite company to work for.
I was able to use skills I already had, but it also allowed a tremendous amount of growth, and learning for anyone employed there. I must say that the environment & culture between employees, and management was enriching. There was an excellent work/life balance, and at least for me the best part of my day was coming in not waiting to leave.

A challenging environment
Systems Services & Support Analyst (Current Employee), Merrimack, NHJune 19, 2015
Pros: Excellent Benefits
Cons: Unprofessional work environment. Not easy to move within the company.
The environment with Fidelity has been the same challenging. The work day is likely to be extremely busy, which I like. However, the environment can be a hostile environment. It has not been an professional experience to say the least. There is a lot of disrespectful people from senior management right down to the coworkers. I think that is the hardest part of my job is dealing with the professionalism in the work place.
I also feel that it is difficult to move within the company at Fidelity. Most positions in Technology are down in NC or TX and I have not had an interest to move.
Fidelity has been very generous with the compensation and have great benefits. I made use of the tuition reimbursement that the company offers and went back to school to earn a BS in Software Engineering, which I just finished back in February of this year. I have decided to move on from the company and look for a position that I can become more technical and grow with a company.
At Fidelity, there is always change. There is always, new software with learn and procedures. That is what I enjoy most about the company.

Project Manager (Former Employee), Cary, NCJune 16, 2015
Pros: Location, environment
Cons: Management, job security
This was not a cultural fit for me. I liked my immediate manager, but his manager changed every few months, which made it very difficult on our team, as direction changed with each new manager. If you like a fast pace without knowing what to expect tomorrow, it might be a fit for you.

Great work environment and culture
Staffing Consultant (Current Employee), Durham, NCJune 4, 2015
Pros: Free 5th lunch after you buy 4 "Fit Meals" @ around $3.00/each
Cons: Fast-paced environment. Move fast and learn quickly, or you're out.
There's an expectation at Fidelity that you'll put in the time needed to get the job done, and the sense of urgency is huge. It means you have to set your boundaries as stick with them as often as possible. Outside of this, I have nothing but great things to say about working here. You'll find office politics and different management styles everywhere, so I won't focus on that here. They've put a lot of effort into making sure the workplace is aesthetically pleasing, and after working in what feels like a cave at other places, it's great to have plenty of natural light, local art, water features and greenery almost everywhere you look. People are generally friendly. When walking through the halls, everyone is not going to smile and wave, but when you get into small groups or your work area, it's easy to get to know others.

Fidelity Financial Consultant Program (Former Employee), Aventura, FLJune 2, 2015
Pros: Management
Cons: office
A typical workday would consist of managing all the things that kept the branch running. We would communicate with upper management to get all tasks completed. Assisted customers who walked in with all their brokerage accounts.
