BA here with about 2 years of experience. Feeling very lost about what direction my career should go. If you were me, what tips would you give? My goal is to work in product dev/technology. What certs should I get? Any advice welcome.
Wow, someone who didn't like Haley chirped in this article https://www.wsj.com/articles/fidelity-once-stodgy-and-adrift-bets-on-the-reddit-crowd-11643125668
Some have made enviable careers here, I know that, but I’m not sure if it’s still possible to grow a long successful career here? I have been here for five years and despite all my efforts I have not been able to make any career progress. I'm... — read more
What do you hear about RTO?
how many women report to the Fidelity owner? Do they have voice?
A lot of folks on here seemingly like to criticize the company at times on various things (even though you'll never agree 100% with everything a company does no matter where you work unless you work for yourself). Truth be told I started in this... — read more
Seems illegal, you know, an employer wanting my protected health information. Should everyone be required to report their other vaccines for measles, mumps, polio? This is bull and a lawsuit should commence!
Been toiling for 15 years and have received 3 base pay raises of measly amounts (total about 5k). Total compensation is ok due to shares and bonus, but ffs why are so many associates supposed to absorb base pay cuts you? The corp mantra is "we pay... — read more
The voluntary return to the office is a farce!!! We are relying on the honor system for employees to report vaccination status, well guess what, not everyone is vaccinated and are walking around the office without masks. Either have all employees... — read more
How do associates feel about voluntary RTO over the coming weeks, given that the Omicron variant starting to circulate? Are you planning to come into the office before year-end?
Are people stressed at Fidelity? How is leadership?
I’m getting tired of the competitive atmosphere such as the one at Fido. I have worked before in very competitive environments, but here it has been raised to a higher level. It’s not at all inspiring environment in which coworkers are pitted against... — read more
I am satisfied with pay but I'm wondering if, for this amount of work and unrealistic expectations, I could do a lot better mentally and compensation wise somewhere else? The stress is huge and it's starting to affect my health.
Are all the old billionaires colluding to get their workforces back to the office to support their real estate empire and the local city tax authorities? What the actual f---k? Or is it just their ego?
Yesterday’s Fidelity central headline about Abby seeing payoff from going back on site made me think we were getting a bonus like Vanguard and Schwab but apparently it meant Abby would see a payoff not us.
So many of our best people are working for our competitors now. They were happy to snatch up every single one of them. I guess some companies know what a knowledgeable and experienced employee can mean to the company and its bottom line. Fidelity... — read more
My uncle worked at Vanguard most of his life. He always had only the best to say about the company, even after he retired. Then this week he found out they were cutting his retiree medical account - a move that would have cost him a lot of money. Not... — read more
Another round of VBO people are leaving tomorrow. I wish them all good luck, hope they have a long retirement and are able to spend more time with family and friends. Please post and let us know how life is on the other side. Final round will... — read more
Wonder if the 'new progressive fido' will actually act in any sort of fashion; actions do speak louder than words. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/texas-abortion-law-salesforce-employees/
Mr. Johnson always appreciated his employees and we felt we were part of a company that cared about us. Fidelity also cared about our families by having book fairs for our children, circus tickets, Boston pops tickets, summer family outings etc. ... — read more
I've made Fidelity the priority over my family so many times I'm ashamed to admit it. What did I get in return? An "attaboy" and more work. I was hoping my hard work would be rewarded in a way that'll help me provide better for my family, but I was... — read more
Time to dust off your prose and put together your greatest hits from the past performance year. You can re-live those fond memories, like: stalling progress, stifling creativity, afternoon wfh naps, diversity training, agile enablement, diversity... — read more
Inquiring minds are wondering when Fido will release the Kraken on the unvaxxed. Fidelity love cutting cost, so what better time to cut the folks that don't like to be told what to do. Perfect opportunity to enhance a young, woke, servile work force... — read more
I managed to find a new job in less than a month of searching. I don’t know why I’ve been hesitant to try before. I thought it would be a lot harder, so I didn't even try. Honestly, I’m still a little scared of a fresh start, but that’s negligible... — read more
I hear people saying that the constant threat of layoffs is a new thing. It's not. I've been here for a little over ten years and in all that time I don't EVER remember a time when job security was not an issue. Yes, we had better benefits in the... — read more
So many people seem to be worried about their future here yet so few are actually preparing for the worst. The more you prepare, the less the future looks uncertain and the fewer things you have to worry about. Change what you can and learn to live... — read more
Yet another instance of Fidelity threatening this site with a lawsuit and strong arming them to delete posts. Truth hurts, but it will set you free.
Here's the risk: those who didn't take the VBO are already 'on a list'. They are next to go if the economy takes a downturn and Fido has to enact layoffs. The downside is the layoff package won't be as generous as a VBO package. They ‘dripped’ out... — read more
Based on LinkedIn feed, all white, all male, with a few exceptions.
After the colleagues who worked flawlessly left, the rest of us had a lot more work to do. I could hardly wait for them to make a replacement and I never even thought that they would hire people in their place who are any less capable than their... — read more
Enjoy the summer and your family and friends. That's what really matters.
Fidelity has experienced "record" growth in the past few year. Record growth of hiring & promoting inexperienced/under-qualified people into positions to check D&I boxes. Record growth of unprofitable accounts that will lose money for the firm... — read more
In fact, I don’t know if there was ever a place that gave someone a job fulfillment? I don’t understand people who expect fulfillment here today and are disappointed when they don’t get it. And yet, once upon a time this was a place that gave a lot... — read more
It's hard for me to watch what's been happening with Fidelity in the past several years. This company used to care for its employees and now they just want to use us the best they can and then discard us like yesterday's trash. There was a... — read more
I heard this time 40% eligible people have taken VBO. Curious to know what wat the VBO package? I have VP who was getting promotion to SVP is taking buyout. Anyone knows why this time number of VBO is higher than compared to last time?
Some say they once enjoyed working for this company. I have been here for 3 years and during that time I cannot say that I have ever been overly satisfied with the working conditions here and the atmosphere in general. It is very clear that Fidelity... — read more
One of Fidelity's stated keystone values is jobs and promotions are based on merit. This tenet could not be farther from the truth. They are now all caught up with Critical Race Theory and being Woke. Jobs are being given to folks not based on merit... — read more
