    "Headed In The Right Direction"

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1. Above Average Pay Mostly. Great Benefits! Great Retirement. Match 100% of your contributions up to 7% after a year and 5-year vesting program. Plus a 10% profit sharing contribution each January! Tuition Reimbursement and more. 2. Numerous different business units and sub-groups, many different career paths, multiple locations. Working remote up to 100% a possibility for many positions (off-phone), depending on business group. 3. Mostly good opportunities to improve your skills and knowledge. 4. Massive population to network.

    Cons

    1. Bureaucracy still reigns. Common Sense doesn't always prevail. The simplest things are made complicated... Every time a new senior leader arrives, there is a re-org or re-alignment... They say associates have a voice and they do survey associates, but if you speak up otherwise, do so at your own risk... 2. The company is making great strides towards improving career mobility but many legacy barriers remain in place, including attitudes of hiring managers and their superiors. 3. Very conservative company when it comes to risk...decisions are made by "committee" after exhaustive discussions, even over the most smallest and trivial things. Many times your work gets trapped by becoming all about the process and not the outcome. 4. Top Heavy. Appears to be a large population in the lower pay grades, but very few in the middle (managers, sr. managers), and an enormous Director, VP, and above segment. The top segment is all about taking care of each other when not competing or fighting one another. 5. Unless you sexually harass someone or get caught stealing something, no one gets fired unless it's an overall reduction in force. Lazy or inept associates are coddled or passed along.

    Pros

    Great benefits. 7% match on 401k and 10% profit sharing. They pay you a differential for working late and will pay you good for OT. Work from home 50% of your time if you’d like. Lots of opportunity, work hard and you will grow.

    Cons

    Management can be stressful at times but it’s only to push you to succeed and progress to other roles. Mentally exhausting.

    I worked at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and starting point for a career.

    Cons

    Office politics, managers shifting in and out, minimum raises or recognition for hard work. If you're coming from Leap make sure you know what role you're walking into, movement out if you don't like your position or is not what you expected can almost never happen- unless taken to HR. If you come in during organizational changes, you WILL slip through the cracks. Speak up for yourself.
