Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Resources Have no issues with online capabilities and reference resources; however, I had attended a bonds seminar in the Shrewsbury, NJ office over a month ago and thought I would have heard back about my wanting a meeting to discuss the bonds in my portfolio.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rollover (after) Even though my old 401K was with Fidelity I still found the rollover very easy to accomplish. Everything went very smoothly and in the time frame indicated. It is after the rollover I am having some difficulty. The resources available are not as easy to navigate. There are plenty of options but they don't flow well and I feel I have to dig deep to find what I want. I also have part of the rollover that didn't match any of the IRA funds just sitting in cash. I will have to call to figure out what assistance I can get to invest that portion. September 6, 2016

Rated 2 out of 5 by Reliable There was a long wait time and the investment specialist I spoke with left me on hold after we've discussed that I'm investing in a Fidelity product. Another specialist picked up the phone without knowing what was discussed previously with the other person, so he has to read the notes. That was unprofessional and time wasted!!!! August 24, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Simple 401K Rollover I called a representative prior to rolling over my 401K into an IRA with Fidelity and as always got friendly professional service. The rollover itself was simply a matter of filling out the on-line forms and submitting them. After the rollover account was opened I asked about their managed accounts and did get a little bit of sales pressure to use them but opted to go it alone for the time being. Maybe in the future I'll try a more interactively managed account or even the robo-account if and when it becomes available? August 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by very easy to use I started using the Fidelity website and Active Trader Pro to manage my investment including my IRA(s). Very easy to use and understand. Very reliable. Recommend it for sure. August 9, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by ALWAYS EXCELLENT I have been a Fidelity customer since the mid 1980's. Without exception every time I have asked for help I have been assisted by knowledgeable, courteous people. I have done roll over accounts seamlessly and without any trouble. August 5, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rollover IRA Experience Overall I had a positive experience. As someone who is relatively new to investing the choices are a bit overwhelming. I downgraded the experience because I didn't reduce the choices by as much as hoped using the filters. Nonetheless it was as good or better than what I'd expect from another provider. August 1, 2016
