High Level High Visibilty Sales Position
Active Trader Consultant (Former Employee), Merrimack, NHMarch 11, 2014
Fidelity is a good place to work in some regards but the culture is different from other large companies. My direct supervisory management was excellent, upper level management far from excellent.
Great opportunity to make good money but little opportunity for advancement based on the job position.
Excellent sales skills were an absolute requirement – more... for this job. – less

Great benefits and alot of great people too, very professional
SENIOR SYSTEMS SERVER ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee), Boston, MAMarch 6, 2014
Pros: amenities and benefits were awesome. 401k kicks butt
Cons: work life balance - i was always thrashing about and hard to have a life sometimes
Challenging and yet rewarding fast paced environment with new technology being rolled out consistently. Had many opportunities to work with great teams on the new technology and introduced a lot of it into the environment.
I learned how to perform with grace under pressure (cause it didn't come naturally to me..haha) but my management team and my team – more... mates were always there for me. They all will be missed but I am keeping in touch for sure.
Hardest part of the job was probably dealing with all of the on call pager stuff combined with project work , the two do not play nice together sometimes.
You have to be a tough, dedicated soldier to handle the grind but in the end your 401k and your benefits make it all worth while, as long as you can keep your wife or girlfriend cause they won't see much of you.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to have friends at work and able to meet with them and talk about challenges and help each other..
High Demand, High Reward, is Fidelity in a nutshell. – less

Great jobs, but political minefields are everywhere
Director (Former Employee), Boston, MAMarch 4, 2014
Pros: many opportunities to grow, switch career tracks, add to knowledge
Cons: too much emphasis on manging one's brand and not enough on character and job performance.
Fidelity would benefit from using meritocracy as a standard in all things.

Okay Company
Human Resources Associate (Former Employee), Durham, NCMarch 2, 2014
This was a short term contract position therefore I can't speak much on the culture of this organization. From what I could tell the EEs were happy it seemed like an okay place to work for. I worked in the HR outsourcing industry for eight years and did not wish to do this type of work again which is why I did not pursue a permanent position with this – more... company. – less

Account Executive (Former Employee), FloridaMarch 2, 2014
Pros: company
Cons: leadership or lack of
12 hours a day expected. There way, word for word, or mgt makes you feel incompetent. You meet your goals before year end and they give you "stretch goals". Make you stat late because you havent met your new goals yet. Co-workers are all very stressed and are updating resumes. Hardest part of job was stress put on by mgt. most enjoyable part was leaving.

Planning and Guidance Consultant (Former Employee), Westlake, TXFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: work benefits, fair compensation
Cons: phone center environment in most cases
Working at a call center has it's challenges. Every second of your workday is tracked and monitored. Scheduled breaks and lunches can be constraining.

Fidelity offers fantastic work benefits. Great health insurance options, the best 401k that I have every seen, and more than enough vacation time.
