Financial Advisor Services (Current Employee) – Smithfield, RI – April 20, 2016
I have worked for Fidelity for almost 10 yrs and my overall experience with management is great. Fidelity provides a tremendous amount of resources for skill development and education. Most units/companies at Fidelity have top notch training. Some do not have any training at all...it is on the job. Most of managers listened to suggestions with value and acted on them quickly. Change does happen. Overall a good company.
Privately owned, innovative, opportunities to develop. great reputation
Your manager can control your destiny in the company. Not the hiighest paying, the culture between different Fidelity companies or units can be very different
Fidelity has been really good to me and everyone else on my team. It's a great atmosphere and so far all my managers have been amazing. They have incredible benefits, and if you work hard, you'll see a lot of growth and movement. Some people do burn out being on the phones a lot, but there are chances to do different things. I've been there 6 months and already got 2 promotions. They really care about your ideas and success. If you ever have a problem with something, just talk to a manager and they will really do what they can to fix it.
Outstanding benefits, good pay, fun place to work, they listen to your suggestions
Tiring work sometimes, hours not flexible sometimes, training doesn't cover everything you may need to learn
Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 19, 2016
A start up division at Fidelity Investments to begin to distribute mutual funds through the broker/dealer industry. Came with its challenges mostly due the timing - Just before the 500 point correction in 1987.
great place to work, needed to get away from boston
Financial Analyst III (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 17, 2016
great place to work, great location/office in downtown. needed to get a job closer to home to be with family and kids. not a true finance shop, only dealt with chargeback and little to do with cash and balance sheets.
One of the best companies in Financial/ Banking space to work with

This company has a great working culture; you get varied opportunities to work on multiple areas and lead from the front on the tasks that you take If you want to strengthen your business and technical acumen, this is the place to be Challenging because i had the chance to work on full stack, but enjoyable at the same time
Fidelity does a great job creating planned 401k's and has a large team base to help with any and all financial needs. Customer service is always available to help clients with questions in and out of the office
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Covington, KY – April 11, 2016
I would like to sum it up by saying the training was on hands, the co-workers were very helpful .I ran different machinery depending on the work that had to be done first for the day. The challenging part was making sure the proper postage and pallet tag was right for each job .The mgmt. were very on hands with any issues we would have or questions. We had a Fun Comm. that would come up with different activites each mth.
Fidelity has great benefits with a 7% matching 401k and 10% salary profit sharing. Their base salary is a bit low but they try to make up for it through a fixed bonus structure. Associates at 15%, Seniors 20%, Managers getting 25%, Directors 30% and VP and above at 35+%. They also give out private stock that matures yearly at an internal NAV around $100/share. Fidelity works hard to create a pleasant working environment. Main drawback with Fidelity is that their isn't much room for growth after a certain point No one ever retires from Fidelity prior to 40 years of service it seems...so it makes it hard to have open opportunities and mobility once you get to a Director level.
The company does a great job at focusing on the details. They have a very well outlined routine. Sitting at a desk and ripping phone calls is the name of the game. Very long days, with not much excitement.
Full Trader (Current Employee) – West Lake, TX – March 29, 2016
Fidelity is the best company that I have ever worked for. The culture is amazing, supportive, and caring. The company cares about your career goals and job advancement the moment they interview you. I've learned about leadership and emotional intelligence. My manager is very attentive but gives me autonomy and allows me to be me. The hardest part of the job is learning the finance industry. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning the finance industry.
