Having a job doesn’t equate to talent!

Begging for PTO

If you are not an exempt employee, what is your favorite technique of begging for time off at Fidelity?

This makes very little sense

Why is Fidelity letting go of our top talent without even attempting to keep them? And I'm not referring to layoffs, but those who are quitting to join our competitors and are finding zero resistance from Fidelity. Nobody is trying to keep them by... —  read more 

Fidelity Computer Reimbursement - Class Action

When’s the class action going down with this? It’s clear as day that Fidelity made these mass terminations knowing that revenue declines were on the horizon. I’m sure that Fidelity made assumptions that they can not prove to terminate so many... —  read more

Does anyone know when salaried employees will have their bonus paid out? I’ve heard rumors of both the 6th and the 13th of December.

#METOO FIDELITY?

Let's hear some stories of the firm handling this... Overreactions? Only certain people getting in trouble.

Not buying the job mobility push

For several years Fidelity has been pushing the job mobility thing. Being a white male in my 50s, I was resisting it for a long time because I didn't want to end up the new, inexperienced, guy on a team and be easy pickin's to lay off. But, in the... —  read more

New WI Layoffs

Heard new layoffs in WI now they have gone full agile. 200 plus over the last two weeks or so. Multiple locations.

Be smart, not just old.

(This was a reply to a different post. May work here too.) There will be reductions. So, be smart about it. Not angry. Fidelity is run by a very few, very protected people. Just look around. It’s easier to dump thousands of calls on reps instead of... —  read more 

saved from reimbursement bs

My previous comment got deleted....strange.. Anyways my lawyer got me off with a warning from this Fidelity $hit, no mark on U5 or CRD. Neda literally saved my career. Ain't cheap but you get what you pay for

The only guarantee is there will be reductions

The only guarantee is there will be reductions...(This is Fidelity we are talking about!) Whether it’s wrapped in a silver VBO wrapper, or poorly disguised as a ham handed “re-org / eliminations (by conference call) with ‘new jobs’ for which everyone... —  read more

I replied on my own to FINRA 8210 letter and I was sure it was a thorough and accurate response. Last week I got another 8210 letter. Did anyone else experience this?

FIDELITY CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT ?

Anyone hear about this ? Fidelity calls the charge an “infrastructure fee.” The fee reportedly amounts to 0.15 percent of not only Fidelity customer assets, but also of the mutual-fund company’s industry-wide assets. It was implemented in 2016... —  read more 

Latest on layoffs?

Any news on layoffs? There were mentions of another round in February but then all talk of it died down. I'm hoping that means the rumor was debunked as false, but it would be nice to know for sure. I know we'll be seeing more layoffs in 2019, but... —  read more 

Market in the toilet = layoffs

Worst week since 2008, which was the last time there were deep layoffs at the company. PAS / mutual fund revenue just took a 20% haircut in the last few months. Money markets are the new cash cow, but is it enough to keep the ax from coming down?
