Human Resources Intern

May - August 2019 • Roanoke, TX

What I liked

The company culture and the beauty of the campus is second to none. There is a stereotype that interns are treated badly and are expected to make coffee runs and run other errands - this was not that internship. I was given meaningful work and had endless opportunities to network and seek advice from senior leaders. I always had work to do and learned so much.

What I wish was different

I would not change anything about my internship. I learned so much and got along well with my team. I was offered a full time position at the end of my internship.

Advice

A good attitude and taking initiative is very important! It's okay not to know everything, but asking questions and a willingness to learn and do work goes a long way.

Pension Administration Intern

June - August 2019 • Roanoke, TX

What I liked

I loved the group that I worked with! It felt as if I was just an average employee helping out with many clients. Being able to do a multitude of work with a flexible schedule made work great! Plus, there were a couple events that we got to bond as a group which were great. In addition to that, working at Fidelity allowed me to learn about all the other kinds of work I could potentially do there (if I were to stay on).

What I wish was different

I had wished there might be another intern to share in the experience with me, but I built relationships with my coworkers easily!

Advice

It’s a great starting to place for an internship, with a great team, a great company, and a great facility!

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.

Marketing and Communications Intern

May - August 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

Interning at Fidelity was a great chance to learn about financial services from one of the top companies in the industry. The work culture is amazing and there's a strong push to become a more modern thinking company, despite its history as a traditional, family run business. They also place a huge emphasis on female executives which is awesome. Working as an intern was also fun and social, because you are placed in an intern group where you attend a lot of group meetings and career workshops together.

What I wish was different

Being such a large company, it was overwhelming at times to understand where your group fits in the organizational scheme. Even after 12 weeks I still don't 100% understand exactly how each segment of the company works.

Advice

Keep an open mind. I was really surprised by how young and innovative Fidelity felt.

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.

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.

What I liked

I really liked my manager and team. They were always super helpful making sure I had the support I needed!

What I wish was different

I wish I had more work with other interns or just generally more actual work interaction with team members instead of when I needed help.

Advice

Make sure you ask questions and advocate for yourself wherever you end up working! Also, be sure to be making connections with as many people as you can!

Quality Assurance Engineering Intern

May - August 2016 • Covington, KY

What I liked

I was treated as a normal employee. My project was giving guidelines to follow and I was given the opportunity to design/implement as I wanted.

What I wish was different

Nothing! It turned into a job offer and I plan to continue working for Fidelity.

Advice

Don’t slack off. Work hard and try to keep ahead of your manager and your work load will be super light. Also, ask as many questions as possible, you are there to learn.

Audit Analyst Intern

June - August 2019 • Roanoke, TX

What I liked

I loved how as an intern I was treated as a full time employee, taking on tasks that made it possible for me to learn as much as possible. I was selected to participate in a Risk Management Training during the first few days of my internship which gave me a good foundation to build on throughout the internship.

What I wish was different

Some days there was more direction than others, and I wish on the days I did not have as much work they would have given me something to work on.

Advice

It was really great to intern for such a big company and no matter what department you are in, Fidelity does an amazing job making sure you know about other parts of the company as well. They really believe in individuals personal development in all areas, and I was lucky to be a part of that.

Software Engineer Intern

June - August 2019 • Boston, MA

What I liked

Really liked Boston, really liked the other employees in terms of people who I could converse with and look up to. And even get drinks with after work, etc. And the other interns were also really cool. I also liked office, it was pretty modern, very centrally located in the city, and nice amenities like free snacks. I liked the overall product I was working on.

What I wish was different

I wish there was more programming for the interns to get to know each other. There weren't really avenues in which I could get to know people working on other floors, for example. Some of the programs they did have for us I thought were kind of boring.. could have been a bit more exciting. I also wish I had more work to do. I guess the experience was supposed to be fun and educational, which it was, but I wish a bit more was expected of me and they gave me more work to do. I also wish the integration of the interns was better in the beginning of the summer. For example, ensuring we understand the product and the codebase. The documentation of the codebase wasn't great.

Advice

Ask questions.

May - October 2019 • Salt Lake City, UT

What I liked

What I wish was different

It wasn’t the most entertaining job in the world, but it was definitely worth it.

Advice

Be willing to work hard and put in the effort to learn hard things.
