A sales firm that happens to do finance

Associate (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Fisher Investments full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou will specialize in specific areas. You become friendly with most of the people there and its a very open environment. They have 401K matching and relatively good benefits.

ConsDon't expect that you will learn how to value a company, select investments, become a trader, manage accounts or really do much in finance. Rather you will focus on doing one thing over and over for comp that is simply better elsewhere. However, if you are on the sales side the comp was pretty good but that may have changed. Also don't really expect job satisfaction as the culture isn't easy to deal with.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Was a good company year and years ago. Today it's a sinking ship.
