Fidelity Investments

Risk Management Intern

May - August 2019 • Merrimack, NH

What I liked

Aside from my individual and team responsibilities and projects, there was lots of interesting programming for all interns, my favorite being the money management workshop. There were so many opportunities to learn about areas of the company other than your own, which was great. It was clear to me that my team and the company as a whole really cared about my experience. They trusted me with important projects, while ensuring I wasn't overwhelmed and had all the tools I needed to be successful. Overall, this summer internship was a great experience that I would definitely recommend.

What I wish was different

I honestly can't think of anything that I would change. The pay was great, I was allowed to be flexible with my schedule as long as I hit 40 hours each week, and I was allowed to work from home. There is not much more I could have asked for. I will say that I would have liked more communication during the application process; I applied and submitted my video interview at the beginning of October and did not hear anything further until the start of February.

Advice

Take advantage of all of the opportunities that you have for the duration of your internship. I know my company had a lot of online training that interns had access to for the summer, as well as free access to the gym at the office, a perk that full-time associates do not even have. Network with others in the company and learn as much as you can while you're there!

Financial Representative Inter

May - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I enjoyed being able to interact directly with retail clients in order to service them with personal and account needs.

What I wish was different

I would have loved to have been able to sit in on more financial planning meetings.

Advice

Always stay upbeat and open-minded! Finances are a very personal aspect of one's life, and can be really overwhelming to clients who rely on institutions such as Fidelity to guide them in the correct direction in finding financial security and a good plan for the future.

Marketing Intern

June - August 2019 • Boston, NY

What I liked

The corporate culture is fantastic; a collaborative environment that acts as a hub for new trends and information in the financial industry and marketing sphere. With days dedicated to learning and immersing myself in the day to day of my managers while also contributing to ongoing projects and my own self-guided project, I was able to connect with many individuals and layers to the company.

What I wish was different

I wish this was something that could be connected to RWU. However, this position is usually found within your own personal network

Advice

Absorb all the information you can and be open to new experiences.

Credit Risk Analyst

June - August 2019 • Jersey City, NJ

What I liked

Great group that I worked in, and learned a ton. We had a week in Boston for training with a chance to shadow different groups and people, along with the opportunity to sit in on meetings. Throughout the summer, I got to see all the functions that exist within Fidelity and hear from everybody in senior management.

What I wish was different

I wish that maybe the commute was less difficult, but really no other wishes about the internship itself. Great experience.

Advice

One piece of advice is to reach out to everyone that you can so you can make the most out of it and learn the most from functions of the business other than the one I worked in every day. I was treated like any other employee after training which was a great simulation of real work.

Software Engineer Intern

May - August 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the work culture! I found the agile environment to be very stimulating and there was never a dull moment. The learning curve was ongoing and manageable which I appreciated since I received a lot of support and encouragement from my team members throughout the summer.

What I wish was different

I did not feel as prepared as I could have been coming into the internship. My manager had me dynamically pick up an entire new programming language in a short amount of time. There were plenty of internal resources at the company to leverage however and help me through the learning curve.

Advice

If you ever feel overwhelmed with an assignment and project you have been tasked with, leverage your resources! Speak up and talk to your team members and figure out what you are stuck with or what seems overwhelming! Timelines are usually flexible and project deliverables can be readjusted to your abilities and interests.

Leap Intern

June - August 2019 • Smithfield, RI

What I liked

Management and team members were very accessible and friendly. I was encouraged to seek help, network, and ask professional advice. There was also plenty of internship events for charity, money management, technical presentations, and networking. For my project(s), I was given the freedom to pursue something I was interested, and was challenged, but supported during my time here.

What I wish was different

I had a great experience and would not change anything!

Advice

The internship is what you make of it. It is possible to glide through the summer without too much to show, and no one will babysit you to make sure you are doing your work. But if you really want to get as much experience as possible here, you will be encouraged and supported in doing so. Ask for help and for work!

Wealth Management Intern

June - August 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I really liked the culture at Fidelity. It is a very positive environment and everyone who works there is always willing to help. I was able to connect with a multitude of people across Fidelity and they were able to answer my questions about their work, the company itself and they gave me very helpful career advice.

What I wish was different

Advice

I would say take advantage of every opportunity you are given and listen to the feedback provided. I would also say make sure to make connections to learn more about the company and to receive career advice because everyone at the company is eager to meet with you.

My team was incredibly supportive and would be open to helping me at any point.

Commute was a bit shorter, but this wasn't something I couldn't control

Be ready to learn quickly, but don't be afraid to ask questions on the way!

Software Engieering Intern

June - August 2019 • Merrimack, NH

What I liked

It was really cool to have been able to see how Agile business practices are carried out in a real world environment. I gained exposure to what it would be like to work for a very large company. I got to see a lot of other departments and participate in intern events - the internship program there is very important to them.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had more of a choice in which department I was placed in, or at least that I could have known before my first day.

Advice

I would certainly suggest taking advantage of this opportunity if it presents itself to you - Fidelity is an incredible company.

Software Engineer Intern

May - August 2019 • Salt Lake City, UT

What I liked

I liked how I go to work on real projects and didn't have to do any busy work. I felt like I was just another software developer on the team, and I was able to take on anything any of the other developers could.

What I wish was different

I wish I hadn't been scared to ask questions at the beginning, so that I could have gained a better understanding quicker and gotten more done throughout the summer. I could've asked a question for a few minutes instead of searched through code for hours to answer that same question.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions, especially at the beginning.

Capital Markets Credit Risk Intern

June - August 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I was given a lot of responsibility and the opportunity to learn a ton. They definitely utilized me to my maximum potential and push me to do my best work. The environment was very welcoming and I felt like a valuable member of the team.

What I wish was different

I wish my group had more interns in it. I was the only one in my immediate area and sometimes felt isolated from other intern groups.

Advice

Take on every piece of work they throw at you to learn as much as possible. I talked about extra projects I took on at all my interviews and used it as an example of my work ethic. Don't take any day for granted, reach out to higher ups and have coffee. Just get face-time with anyone you can.
