Thread regarding Fidelity Investments layoffs

Investing a lot of effort

I really care about keeping the job here and do a lot of overtime, giving it my best. However, I get discouraged when they tell me it’s not worth it. I still refuse to believe it. It is impossible that putting in effort is not worth it.

Get what you can get out of it (CFP etc), but don’t plan on being there for the long haul. Believe me, it is so not worth the stress. Plus once you hit “a certain age,” (aka the age they use in the infamous vbo equation), you’re on the radar and will be out of there. VBO is nice n all, but… better than you drive your own destiny, vs letting them do it.

Don’t become dependent on OT, this is how they trap you. You will end up working 50-60 hours a week and then you won’t be able to take the initial pay cut to go to a salaried position. Seen a lot of people get seriously burnt out working a ton of OT. Not to mention it’s bad for your mental health and having a real life outside of work. It’s all about balance.

Don’t listen to people on here who are mainly disgruntled employees. Get your company paid for CFP and keep getting better and you will do great.

Put every penny you can of that OT in the 401k and it will turn out just fine. Max it out if you can.

Welcome to Fidelity, where the lowest common denominator sets the pace for the entire organization. It's consensus driven, so you can't get sh-t done, or if you do get sh-t done, you'll be forced out because you don't fit the "culture". Fu-k you, and fu-k me! Fu-k everyone!
