"The culture here is very much inclusive of interns. We are made to feel like real members of the team and everyone is happy for us to get involved and develop our skills. This is the same for social activities as well, where we are very much included as part of the team."
Technology, Placement Student, Surrey
"Despite having around 7,000 employees, the company feels small and very personable. Every individual I contacted throughout the year (often people I had never met) was always able to find time for me and help me where they could. Even if it was just for career advice."
Placement Student, London and Surrey
"The culture within the office is fantastic, with all members of staff seeming very friendly and approachable. There is less of an emphasis on social activities, however. Within the Early Careers space it has, at times, felt more orientated towards summer interns than placement students."
Placement Student, Surrey
"There are lots of great events for interns to get involved with, organised by the Early Careers team, and the Canon Street office is in such a great location that it can lead to a good social life outside of work. If you are in the Kingswood office then it can sometimes feel rather isolated."
Intern, Kingswood
"What is brilliant about the culture at Fidelity is that you can genuinely see how the relationships between colleagues remain the same both outside of work hours and in the office as well. While HR does a fantastic job of organising Early Careers socials with other graduates and apprentices, interns are equally included on their own team's events and nights out. I was fortunate enough to attend the annual team offsite for an overnight stay."
Intern, Kingswood
"Everyone in the company is very friendly and always ready to help. Social activities are organised that allow us (interns) to meet experienced people in the company and get familiar with all parts of the business. My team normally goes out for drinks every Friday and sometimes goes out to do some sports activities like climbing and darts."
Placement Student, Cannon Street, London.

"The culture in the office is very relaxed and inclusive, especially in my team. You are encouraged to speak your mind and join in discussions. There aren't many social events due to the location of the office but interns are definitely invited when there are."
Intern, Tonbridge
"Interns are well integrated within the company, with social events organised by the careers team. You're not viewed as an intern in terms of socialising with other employees. You get the chance to meet and socialise with people right from the start and everyone is willing to take the time to talk to you."
Technology, Placement Student, Kingswood
"The culture is one of the company's major assets and people are very nice and willing to help. Socials are organised by the company for the interns (open bar and food provided) and other interns are generally keen to meet after work. My team also invited me to their social events and were generally very friendly."
Intern, London/Kingswood
"There are lots of social activities including BBQs and charity fundraisers. We nearly always have drinks on Fridays and there have been various intern socials."
Intern, Kingswood, Surrey/ London
"The company culture is very good at Fidelity. Everyone I've met that works here is extremely friendly and kind and always happy to help. Social activities are regularly organised and interns are coupled up with individuals on the grad scheme, creating a sort of buddy system."
Intern, London/Kingswood
"Everyone is interested in your life outside of work and cares very much that a work/life balance is maintained. Interns regularly meet up as a group at lunch or after work and we contact each other throughout the day if we need help or support."
Intern, London
