    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...

    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
