Thread regarding Fidelity Investments layoffs

How much is Fidelity actually appealing to younger candidates?

While I applaud Fidelity for trying to become a more progressive company which is appealing to younger candidates for employment, I have to agree it is a lot of change in a short period of time.
Since I am on the boat, I hope the captain keeps us afloat and we don’t take too many torpedos from competitors.

I apologize to someone for copying post @1xus+1afyL2AH who made me think about the extent to which this company is interesting to younger generations. I would not agree that this is a company progressive enough for their needs.

There is no way these D&I promotions are going to end well.

There have been three in my immediate area, and they are both clueless. It's beyond comprehension how unqualified they are. I'm not going out of my way to help them any longer.

The younger generation expects fast, fast, fast promotions without putting in the continuous hard work to really earn it. I've even seen a lot of D&I promotions to VP level this past year, these people have not put in the time, ownership and really hard work that the rest of us have put in over the years. If they don't get promoted quickly within 2-3 years they will leave. There is no loyalty. Yes, we are all replaceable but letting all the truly loyal tenured people leave will not move the company ahead. It will become an organization of managing all the turn of constant internal movement.

The only reason VBO even exists is because of many loyal employees, with 2-3 decades helping to build the Green Machine. The newer generation is more likely to stick around only 2-3 YEARS if they are not promoted quickly enough.

Calling them worthless is pretty harsh, but it might be appropriate....the ones I've seen in the branches care more about the social channels on their phone than they do about customers.

The new D&I fresh out babies hired into the company are just about worthless. It doesn't help that they call a lot of them "unicorns."

I don't think any of them know what a full day's work is.

Agree, Fidelity is not progressive enough for the newer generation. Unless they stick with the work from home flex opportunities, faster promotions, higher pay, and maybe a paid day off to volunteer then it may be appealing. I dunno.
