Company Culture

Company is very successful, yet the millionaire leader feels she isn't making enough money. In 2017 Fidelity pushed out many jobs held by middle aged men in favor of millennials. Age discrimination at it's finest.

Support from management

Laughable. They're all corporate robots and don't give an inch. I don't think they ever listened to a word I said.

Teamwork

My team worked together well. Expect zero help from your VP who most likely "works from home" so often as to be laughable.

Freedom to work independently

Well when your boss isn't around, what choice do you have?

Internal Communication

Be prepared for a lot of emails that tell you nothing.

Gender Equality

100% Female Friendly. Men need not apply.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay is excellent.

Office / Work Environment

Beige cube city, but office has a gym.

Work-Life Balance

Apparently it worked well for my manager, who might as well have been gone all of the time.

Job Security

You will be let go in a heartbeat.

Inclusive / Diverse

Middle aged white men need not apply.

Suggestions for improvement

  • If they want my ideas for improvement, they can pay me for them.

What I like about the company

Pay is good.

What I dislike about the company

Upper Management is abysmal. VP or above simply do not listen and dodge every issue or concern you have with double-speak.

Company Culture

Excellent company to work for. They have fantastic benefits and care greatly about their employees.

Support from management

My manager was very supportive but the higher up you can there is a issue sometimes with them understanding some of the challenges at the lower levels. It's like this in a lot of companies.

Career Development

I was lucky to always have managers that pushed me.

Overall compensation for your work

Everyone always wants more money but I think they pay well. When you add in benefits it's excellent. I do feel they pay more for a degree rather than someone with experience. This can be frustrating at times.

Work-Life Balance

This can be a challenge sometimes. They do expect a lot but you are paid well for the work you do. Much of my issue was myself not the company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • As I said the benefits are outing. The one thing that I always wanted to see a was on-site day care. I don't have young children but had many report to me over the years that did. A on-site day care would take so much stress off the employees.n/a

What I like about the company

I really can't say enough good things about the company!

What I dislike about the company

The only thing I mentioned already. I feel they pay for degrees rather than experience even if the degree has nothing to do with what their job is.
