No work life balance, not a place for mid-late careers
Communications Consultant (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJuly 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!
Pros
401k match is very generous, but should be as they cancelled pension plan
Cons
Long hours, managers unable/unwilling to balance work load (out of touch with client requirements)

Lack of teamwork and training
Operations Specialist (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJuly 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!
Pros
Secure income, nice colleagues
Cons
no one has time to help or train you

Software Engineer in Test (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCJuly 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).

health care is pricey. Hard to move up in the company as people don't leave.

GREAT job for full-time employees
C# Contractor Developer (Former Employee) –  Greenwood Village, COJuly 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.
Pros
Good employee environment
Cons
Contractors are not often converted to employees

Extremely hierarchical and lacking cultural competence
Senior Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Smithfield, RIJuly 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.
Pros
Depending on your role you might be able to work from home 1-2 days per week
Cons
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

A great workplace and environment
CSS Associate (Former Employee) –  Westlake, TXJuly 7, 2018
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.
Pros
free lunches, bonuses, overtime, benefits
Cons
Stressful

It was alright but misleading
Fidelity (Seasonal) (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJuly 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
