Does Fidelity Investments offer dental insurance?

Pros

Good health and dental benefits

Cons

Promotion requirements are very bias to each candidate. I worked on a higher team for a 12 months without being properly compensated as I did not meet the requirements. When applying for the positions after 9 months of already working for the team, I was denied as I did not have enough “experience” as I did not meet the 2 year at Fidelity requirement. This was not the case for a male team member of mine that got the promotion after a few months from starting at Fidelity. We came from the same education background and work experience... the only difference was he was male and I was female. Very dodgy management. The head of HR did not show up to my exit interview- I waited 30 minutes for her and no notice or apology was sent.

Advice to Management

Follow the rules you have set. When a precedence has already been set, follow it in order to avoid being discriminatory.

Does Fidelity Investments offer parental leave?

Pros

Great benefits and amazing healthcare. 401k has a large portfolio, great matching and profit sharing if you are there for years. PTO and VTO, FMLA Maternity leave 6-7 months, Paternity leave about a month I think. Lots of OT for second shift.

Cons

Discriminates against pregnant women and then penalizes you and shames you for having to pee frequently. Gives too much VTO and doesn’t anticipate proper staffing to help cover 2nd shift at night. Pressures employees to do the impossible and demands perfection yet pays crap, and doesn’t even listen to their employees. PTO can only be planned. They get angry if you have to take sick days. They don’t actually give credit to outstanding employees like they should. I was supposed to get a VOC award but the manager who took it never submitted it even after multiple requests. They refuse to change your schedule. The company says they’re family friendly but they really aren’t. They force you to sign a sort of gag order which means you’re not allowed to tell incoming employees or potential employees how bad it is while you work there up to a year after you leave. They expect you to do all of these ridiculous things during a call, jump through hoops in a quick and timely manner however also need to be able to connect with callers while being verbally abused. The work environment is a little toxic. Feels like high school. If you’re not in someone’s click then you’re alone. If you’re pregnant they do give you a generous maternity leave however they are prejudice against you if you’re pregnant or become so. I had to constantly get up and go to the bathroom and had severe vertigo, because of that I wasn’t taking calls which caused my stats to go down. I was constantly pulled aside and “coached”, a polite way of reprimanding, and told that I, a pregnant woman, needed to hold it till my breaks. When I called HR about it I was told other pregnant women were held to the same standards, yet my own sister in law was almost fired because of the same issues. Every pregnant woman I’ve known who worked this position quit because of the discrimination. Doing a lawsuit against the company would be pointless because they can just say I wasn’t adhering to my required stats and NH is an at will state. Word to the wise, don’t plan on starting a family while working on the floor. They will use every excuse under the sun as to why you can’t transfer departments or grow in the company and why you can’t get a different shift. I was 1:30-9:30pm. After I got pregnant I needed to change my schedule because I couldn’t drive at night. But again I was denied. I left the company because my mental health tanked so low from verbally abusive callers and an employer who didn’t care about what was going on and from being isolated because it’s like high school, and I was refused a shift change that I desperately needed.

Advice to Management

Fix the culture on the floor this isn’t high school, give your employees a better wage for dealing with being verbally abused and stop discriminating against pregnant women. You’re lucky I haven’t filed a lawsuit for discrimination. If you’re not careful someone else will. Allow those who need a shift change to get it. Stop forcing employees to lie about how great it is.

If you’re pregnant they do give you a generous maternity leave however they are prejudice against you if you’re pregnant or become so.
