Account Executive/Financial Consultant, Full Time (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZ – August 3, 2015
Pros: Pay, benefits
Cons: work life balance, no autonomy, job security
The pay with this company has been decent other than that it is the typical large organization. Other than your direct manager be prepared to be looked at as just a number, and even at that you are lucky if your direct manager is as good as the one I currently have. Be prepared to hear the constant nagging from management above the local level, the typical "what have you done for me lately". It is not uncommon to put in 10-12 hour workdays and even though it is not said you will be made to feel guilty for using your vacation. Upper management talks a big game when it comes to work life balance but their actions say otherwise. I happened to be lucky enough to work with a great manager and great team but if you have a rough month with sales you never hear the end of it. When you are having a great month upper management is picking apart what you could have done different. As a professional and someone who is the steward of clients financial well-being you should have the freedom to position solutions without influence from upper management. If you want to work in the branches just remember that is a typical sales job full of highs and lows. Depending on your manager you may have autonomy and you may not. It would seem that upper management never wants you to feel secure in your role even though they claim that they want you around for many years in order to retain more clients.

SENIOR EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Jersey City, NJ – May 28, 2015
Pros: Everything was great.
Cons: Reorganization a year after I relocated to be closer to them.
I would come in every morning and prepare for the day. Check in with my boss. Ask if he needed anything. Proceed to my area to check emails and help people as the request came in. I would prepare everyone's expense report and arrange travel for them. I would manage calender's and order supplies as needed. I attended meetings for updates. I was apart of committees to prepare for quarterly meetings.
Implementations - Sr. Conversion Analyst (Current Employee), Covington, KY – May 18, 2015
Cons: demanding/stressful hard to balance having time for personal life
Compensation is great at Fidelity. But, it is a very stressful and time demanding place to work. Very hard to balance work time, family an home life. Requires some hours that interfere with children evening activities and any personal evening and weekend commitments.
Relationship Manager (Current Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FL – May 15, 2015
Fidelity is all about change, they are constantly evolving to stay ahead of the competitors. Sometimes it good change, other times bad. The constant change often leads to having to stay focused on multiple areas all at once.

Financial Advisor Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), Durham, NC – May 14, 2015
I answered all incoming calls from Fidelity customers about all of their health and insurance benefits and also about their 401K benefits. I learned that the there are several types of customer approaches and you have to listen to the customer to understand which approach to take in order to satisfy each client's needs. I enjoyed working with the management team, and all the staff. Everyone in the entire building seemed as a big family from different walks of life. The hardest part from this position was dealing with the each customer over the phone and not having that face to face approach. However, I enjoyed working with this company and meeting each customer half way to make sure they understood all of their benefits no matter what they called about
