I have been working at Fidelity Investments

Pros

Absolutely great people and good culture with good profit sharing.

Cons

They do not pay competitively and are on the low end. Raises are nothing to write home about. One needs to leave here and come back to get a significant bump in pay.

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, excellent training and if you are working in one of the large sites, there is lots of opportunity for movement. Pay isn't based on commission and Fidelity has a great pipeline for business so the leads come to you.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than at other firms and the company is super conservative. Guidance and recommendations will be based on tools with almost zero actual input from the financial reps themselves. If you want to interact with clients, you'll either be on the phones or in a branch. The branches have very little room for advancement and depending on the manager, can be very frustrating and demoralizing. Average tenure for an Account Executive is less than a year due to attrition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within in order to increase job satisfaction. Employees work hard to advance and when they don't, they will leave.
