Its manageable to work with FIdelity but the process & ownership delegation had gone way down blocks. Coordination between departments stands nil. Any mail you send, goes to zillion ppl's inbox and is FYI's /FYA'd before someone at senior level puts their authoritative nose into it!!

A certain amount of stubbornness in ones intention to persist and gain enough to ground to thrive is needed when encountering old school attitudes to women on the part of branch managers. Women do succeed and thrive here and they are advancing. However there are definitely still fewer of us in better paying roles which have more opportunity for advancement. This does seem to be improving.

    The employer is working on changing the culture but it takes time at the branch management level where branch managers have in some cases been fast to claim flexibility for themselves but slow to allow others to do the same - when more senior managers have been trying to explain policies on conference calls more junior managers at the branch level have talked over them in a rush to explain how these policies aren't being explained accurately.

    Maybe. Fidelity is working hard to ensure diversity in the workplace at senior levels - understandably it is a process to implement this in a system where a lot of lower level managers are men who grew up in a chauvinistic culture. Women have left the job who have been badgered by their boss for leaving work on time to pick up children from daycare. As change is being implemented, it’s important to be willing to hang in there and hold ground to help make that happen.

Its a tough environment that should think more about work life balance at all generational levels.

    No formal work from home policy. It all depends on who you work for and how they feel about flexibility and trusting your employee to get the work done.

Good benefits for women with families. As far as a single woman like myself, the most appeal to me is the student loan repayment and assistance.

You need to make sure you have a strong manager who supports is team. During the interview process see if you can speak with potential peers to ask about the balance of power is with main departments you interface with - collaborative, combative | peers or slave? The benefits are great and they have emergency child care, will help with college debt and there is an ability to move among divisions once in.

    Maybe. Fidelity is a big firm with competing divisions - comes down to the manager and the relationship among departments. The closer the position is to the trading and portfolio management function, the higher the chance of it being run like an old boys network. Rare to be #metoo behavior (HR will fix that) but bullies and or man spread is possible. While Fidelity does offer paternity leave for 2 weeks, the men tend not to use this benefit.
