    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    * Good communication between management and employees * Time flies as there is a lot of work * Great department to work with as it improves your investigation skills * Great recognition structure (gift card for error free months and high productivity members in the team)

    Cons

    * Based on the level of responsibility the salary could be better however it seems that Fidelity pays at par to the industry or slightly above. * The work flow varies significantly on a day to day basis but staff numbers are kept under tight control. This could make some days tuff. * Limited opportunities to move up the ladder could take several years. * Systems used to make trade correction should have checks in... place and allow you to back track to avoid errors. But they don’t and that leads to errors.

    Advice to Management

    * Review the compensation structure and pay above par values to retain talent within the company to avoid high turnover which can have a negative impact on the business. * Invest more in technology so that a better and more error free system can be used by your employees
