I worked at Fidelity International full-time (More than 3 years)
Great colleagues who are dedicated to doing a good job and working really hard.
Local offices, so no commuting!
They have good ethics, and try very hard to do the right thing for their customers.
They have a number of very senior people who are not good people managers, and worse, the company does not seem to prioritise leadership skills in this group, so they have no drive to improve. People are promoted to lead departments because they are good at delivering projects or operational improvements, not at developing and inspiring their people. This can lead to it being a demotivating place to work.
The company also want a lot of dedication and loyalty from their people, without expecting to give much back in the way of flexibility or benefits.
They routinely don't hire enough people, so they rely on their existing staff working extra hours, often unpaid, to fill the gap.
Difficult to progress once you are there, they prefer to hire new people than take a chance on existing staff.
Advice to Management
Focus more on your people rather than on your profits. It is very easy to engage your staff without spending much money, you just need to care enough about them.
