Senior Transit Processor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 16, 2018
We prosed and adjusted banking accounts, corrected clients checks that posted incorrectly. Balances general ledgers. Scanned in checks for posting to customers accounts. Started from the ground up on a new product called Imaging. Assisted manger on many varies projects.
No work life balance, not a place for mid-late careers
Communications Consultant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – July 15, 2018
Expect to work tons of hours with little reward (If you’re salaried). The more you work, the more they expect. It’s up to you to set boundaries and say no to extra projects when at capacity. If you don’t, you will burn out quick. The management team (under Abby’s leadership) is placing too high a value on Millennials. Older workers are being devalued and cast or pushed out. If you are older than 39, find another employer!
401k match is very generous, but should be as they cancelled pension plan
Long hours, managers unable/unwilling to balance work load (out of touch with client requirements)
Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – July 14, 2018
My job was mainly a data entry job. I t was monotonous, but required a lot of attention to detail and knowledge of a platform we did not get trained on. They made us track every moment of the day-even bathroom breaks!
If you can get in to the financial side and get licensed, it would be amazing!
Software Engineer in Test (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – July 11, 2018
Worked for Fidelity for roughly 3 years. Started there out of college so they helped me build a solid foundation. They are all about enabling their employees so they are there for you, in terms of growth. Lots of opportunity for advancement. Outstanding benefits (401k match, profit sharing, stock bonus, regular bonus, etc).
Senior Executive Secretary (Former Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – July 11, 2018
Fidelity is a great company to work for. They are privately owned, and spend a lot of money on the best technology which makes work life easier and gives employees the opportunity to get things done independently. The corporation does look out for it's employees and has a lot of integrity.
Strives to protect it's employees, beautiful NJ office, great corporate culture.
health care is pricey. Hard to move up in the company as people don't leave.
C# Contractor Developer (Former Employee) – Greenwood Village, CO – July 10, 2018
Fidelity Investments has excellent job growth potential, ability to learn new skills, great benefits, and an excellent environment - for full-time employees. As a contractor, you can expect to participate in many of these benefits. Unfortunately, the chance of transferring from contractor to full-time employee was surprisingly low.
Investment Advisor Representative (Current Employee) – Covington, KY – July 9, 2018
Had a fun environment but limited advancement past 2 years of employment. The job was a great starter position for the financial services industry, however not necessarily a company where advancement is easy.
Extremely hierarchical and lacking cultural competence
Senior Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Smithfield, RI – July 9, 2018
Extremely political. It's all about who you know. Management sets people against each other. Extremely difficult to get support from people with more experience. Too many meetings, approximately 5 -7 half hour meetings per day. Always looking for who to blame when something goes wrong. Senior management is mostly composed of middle age white men with the exception of a few women, one latino and one african-american senior executive.
Depending on your role you might be able to work from home 1-2 days per week
Lots of politics, lots of gossip, when there is an issue the focus is on who to blame, salaries are not competitive except for senior management salaries, there is absolutely no cultural diversity
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Cary, NC – July 8, 2018
Fidelity is very mindful of their employees and customers. As with any institution dealing with financial safety, security is a top priority. A draw back within the firm can sometimes be the various levels of management, however they do all work to try and achieve the goals set out by the firm.
I learned so much about investment options, and how to save for your own retirement at Fidelity. They offer an excellent training program, and they also provide us with the necessary tools to exceed in our position. The hardest part of the job was that it could be stressful at times, however; this is manageable by going to the gym.The workplace culture was great, and friendships can last a lifetime.
Implementation Analyst Intern (Current Employee) – Smithfield, RI – July 7, 2018
Favorite company and wish to return. I Was in Smithfield and had such an amazing experience. Everyone is helpful and knowledgable. YOu can tell the company is driven on employee satisfaction and client satisfaction.
great cafe, coworkers are great, remote work opportunity, great benfits and contribution matching
Fidelity (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 7, 2018
I enjoyed working for this company because of the people that I worked with. The job itself was a very misleading and I didn't agree with how they handled their business. The company had us call shareholders and indirectly convince them to vote in favor of the new contract
