Fisher First Class

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fisher Investments full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHaving been in the industry for about 20 years both on the brokerage side and institutional side and I consider Fisher the big leagues of firms to work for. I have been with the firm now for some time and happily plan to stay until I am ready to retire. This is a first class organization with the opportunity to interact with any level of the company (CEO on down)and the pay and benefits are significantly better than other opportunities. Sure, we work hard and the expectations are high, but what else would be expected in a multi-billion dollar money management firm? We are one of the few firms that actually care about each customer and spend a great deal of time and resources on this. I am always surprised when I see someone leave the firm seeking “greener” pastures because I know what is out there in the finance industry – good luck swimming in that 60-80 hour per week shark tank. Unfortunately, I see a lot of just out of college people that complain about the work but have no other relevant work experience. They are in for a rude awakening.

ConsIt would be nice to have some type of child care or flex time for those with kids; especially younger pre-schoolers.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is important for any firm to continuously recognize that talent can come from any level of the firm. Keep hiring talent that we want to keep at the firm for the next 20+ years.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
