I really liked the inclusive environment that Fidelity demonstrated for all co-op students throughout the term. All co-op students were provided a full week training which included a variety of helpful workshops and bonding activities. Roughly once a week, all co-ops would be invited for an overview of a specific team within Fidelity (i.e. marketing overview, finance overview, etc). During my co-op term I helped create and manage my own project, calculate a team's velocity/productivity, and coordinate/lead weekly meetings with the senior management team.
Work was relatively slow at the beginning of my term but gradually began to escalate.
Management at Fidelity was great. Continuous encouragement and constructive feedback was tremendous.
The culture at Fidelity was incomparable to other companies. Everyone is willing to help and provide clarity whenever needed. Fidelity really shows how much they care about their co-op students.
Fidelity will be an amazing experience. Make the most of your co-op experience (Network, develop, etc) as four months goes faster than you think.
