A very useful and in-depth insight that provided good awareness of the different areas of Fidelity. Fidelity as a firm, put a lot of time and effort into us to ensure we got the most out of the experience. The insight was very enjoyable and relaxed and we learnt a lot about the firm and the industry.
The insight programme was extremely informative, there was great exposure to many departments and the opportunity to ask questions to a wide range of people. There was great emphasis on the week being an opportunity for us to find out whether the company and programmes were right for us, just as much as whether we were right for the company.
Thoroughly enjoyed the internship, and learned the most I possibly could in 8 weeks. All the other interns were great people, and we had a lot of laughs throughout. Thrown in the deep end somewhat, but everyone at the firm has no issues with giving you their time and answering any questions that you may have.
I felt entirely welcome the whole week, a lot of effort had gone in to ensuring that as well as learning a lot, we had a fun time too (a city tour, cocktail night and the London Eye were all part of our week). There was plenty of time to get to know others on the Insight Week which was great, and all the sessions at Fidelity were varied and enjoyable.
The Fidelity Investment Insight Week was incredibly rewarding - both useful and genuinely enjoyable. The week effectively combined valuable work experience with light hearted activities to help the group get to know each other. Having discussed other insight weeks with friends at University, Fidelity appeared to be by far the most enjoyable experience. Due to the group being all female, the atmosphere was perhaps less competitive than other insight weeks. Mixing with Fidelity employees from all areas was especially rewarding, as they all spoke so highly of Fidelity as a company. Also, you were treated as a valued member of the insight week. Each day we were introduced to different senior employees of all teams - you felt like Fidelity were genuinely passionate about you gaining the best experience of their company possible.
The insight week was full of enthusiastic and lively speakers, who were greatly interesting and informative. As well as this, there were practical activities such as a tour of the city and a stock picking game, which gave us a proactive way of learning which was highly enjoyable.
The Fidelity internship gave me an excellent insight to the company and my division. I was able to work closely with my colleagues and learn how effectively model and present my findings. There was flexibility to work at your own pace while attending the meetings to learn more about the process.
I really enjoyed by placement at Fidelity. It was such a great environment to learn and work in because everyone in the company was so friendly and were genuinely willing to give their time and to help me. From an early stage, I integrated into the team and was given a lot of responsibility which made my work more varied and enjoyable. I was also lucky enough to work with multiple internal and external stakeholders which meant I interacted with or met various people throughout the company.
It is a great company to work for and gave me a really valuable insight into the industry as a whole. The programme was managed really well with many talks and events for the interns to get to know each other as well as senior members of the company. I was able to get very involved with the work of the company which was very rewarding.
