We’re thrilled to share that Fidelity has been named a LinkedIn Top Company for 2023, a recognition that helps people identify the best places to grow their careers. At Fidelity, we’re committed to providing educational opportunities to our customers, our communities—and as evidenced by this data-backed award—our associates.
We strive to provide a culture of learning and development where our associates can have a wide range of experiences and career paths without leaving the organization. The 68,000[i] people at this 77-year-old company have jobs and backgrounds as diverse as our customers. There are associates who started in asset management and are now writers, and executives with a background in legal who now lead efforts to educate students in our communities.
This is all by design. Internal career mobility helps bring some of the best of Fidelity—the breadth of our experiences—to our customers and stakeholders. In 2022, 36% of associates moved into a new role at the company. To foster this mobility, we’ve invested in pathways to help our associates explore what’s next and continue to learn and grow. This includes new onboarding programs with built in time to explore career pathways outside of an associate’s “day job” as well as rotational programs that allow people to explore different areas of the business. We offer function-specific development programs, like Fidelity LEAP for early-career technologists and FidYOU for associates exploring a career in operations. Our benefits also enable access to higher education, from our student loan assistance offering to our recently launched fully-funded undergraduate degree benefit.
- “I feel as if having time off [of my customer service role on the] phones during the CRA Career Development Experience has allowed me to take time to explore my interests and the resources Fidelity has; to take those interest and turn them into what’s needed to achieve my career goals." - Preston, High Net Worth Associate
- I feel so fortunate to work at a company that provides this program [Student Loan Assistance] to its associates who struggle with student loan debt. I personally feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and a huge relief, knowing that Fidelity is there, and they are chipping away at my student loan debt. -Kristen, Marketing Manager
- "Fidelity is a great company to work for since they invest so heavily into personal development and technology while also providing a great workplace culture. It was honestly a very easy decision for me to pick the LEAP Program to start my career." - Kenil, Cloud Engineer

LinkedIn’s methodology uses LinkedIn data to rank companies based on eight pillars that have been shown to lead to career progression: ability to advance; skills growth; company stability; external opportunity; company affinity; gender diversity; educational background and employee presence in the country. Ability to advance tracks employee promotions within a company and when they move to a new company, based on standardized job titles. Skills growth looks at how employees across the company are gaining skills while employed at the company, using standardized LinkedIn skills. Company stability tracks attrition over the past year, as well as the percentage of employees that stay at the company at least three years. External opportunity looks at Recruiter outreach across employees at the company, signaling demand for workers coming from these companies. Company affinity, which seeks to measure how supportive a company’s culture is, looks at connection volume on LinkedIn among employees, controlled for company size. Gender diversity measures gender parity within a company and its subsidiaries. Educational background examines the variety of educational attainment among employees, from no degree up to Ph.D. levels, reflecting a commitment to recruiting a wide range of professionals. Finally, employee presence in the country looks at the company’s number of employees in the country relative to other companies, as a means of capturing companies that provide a diverse work environment and more opportunities for career advancement and networking.
To be eligible, companies must have had at least 500 employees as of Dec. 31, 2022 in the country and attrition can be no higher than 10% over the methodology time period, based on LinkedIn data. Similarly, companies with layoffs that amount to more than 10% of their workforce, based on public announcements between Jan. 1, 2022 and the list launch, are also ineligible. Only parent companies rank on the list; majority-owned subsidiaries and data about those subsidiaries are incorporated into the parent company score. The methodology time frame is Jan. 1, 2022 through Dec. 31, 2022. This analysis represents the world seen through the lens of LinkedIn data, drawn from the anonymized and aggregated profile information of LinkedIn's members around the world.
LinkedIn excludes all staffing and recruiting firms, educational institutions and government agencies. It also excludes LinkedIn, its parent company Microsoft and Microsoft subsidiaries.
