I have been working at Fisher Investments

Pros

Great compensation if you can sell. It's competitive just like any other sales jobs. If you're not motivated and outgoing, you shouldn't be in this role or in sales in general, but if sales doesn't scare you, there exists some serious profit potential at FI.

Cons

VERY bureaucratic! They say it's a meritocracy but in reality it's just like any other large firm where tenure outweighs skill, aptitude/intelligence, and production.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rotate employees more and make the rotations based on skill, not politics and how much you like that person. Just because you may not like someone, doesn't mean that another department won't value them (provided they indeed have value to offer).

    Pros

    Fisher offers a team oriented environment ripe for learning as you are surrounded by intelligent, driven, and energetic people. If you show potential and are willing to work hard, career opportunities abound both laterally and vertically into management. It’s simply a great place to cultivate a career.

    Cons

    On the flip side, you have to utilize every minute of every day to accomplish your objectives. Furthermore, you are 100% responsible for taking ownership for your actions and that can be a lot of accountability. Especially, given Fisher Investments is a money management firm and can require tremendous attention to detail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It can often be hard to cultivate the needs of a growing employee base. I would encourage all levels of management to keep an open communication policy with their employees in order to continue fostering intellectual growth.
