Pros

Fisher offers competitive pay and a place to develop a long-term career. Employees are encouraged to develop themselves professionally by rotating to different areas of the firm if they choose. Alternately, employees can choose to develop depth by becoming specialists in a certain role. Either development model is open--depends on the employees choice. Management is interested getting employees into the right role for them. It's a great, challenging and competitive atmosphere, no two days are ever the same.

Cons

Employees who aren't interested in money management or a competitive workplace may burn out. But that's no different than other finance or money management firms.

Advice to Management

Every firm has disgruntled former employees, and a small number of current employees who are disgruntled. That's normal, particularly for a competitive, money management firm. It doesn't mean anything. By and large, from my experience, employees enjoy what they are doing, enjoy their colleages, and enjoy the challenge and opportunity at the firm.

    Pros

    Great group of bright, young movivated people. Good compensation and benefits. A chance to learn a lot in a short period of time. Many people end up working in many different departments to see where they are best suited. Potential for advancement in team leader areas.

    Cons

    Parking can be a problem, but that is pretty minor. Sometimes employees may feel micromanaged. Now is somewhat of a tough time at Fisher Investments because we didn't get clients out of stocks in this bear market. However, who did? Everyone is working to hold clients hands' through the hard times and make sure they continue to be clients so they can benefit from the next bull market.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your employees so they will stay on board for the upcoming market turnaround.

    Pros

    Decent rep in SF area, your in SF, lots of good people, young company, was growing before they blew the last market call.

    Cons

    Hard to sleep at night selling 65 year olds into all equity portfolios. One asset manager that is not always right but his strategy relies on perfection.

    Advice to Management

    You need more defined career paths and better selection for managerial rotations. Many managers are inexperienced in there current role do to rotations. Need to change approach to furthering education. You do not learn everything you need/should know from Fisher. Time to stop preaching about last job you will ever need... cough... cough...
