    Pros

    Ken Fisher is a financial genius and the structure in which the company is run is suitable to meet the client's needs. They value all degrees from different fields of study.

    Cons

    Hired as an "Investment Associate," so I didn't even know what department I would be working in until day 1. In the Client Services department they say in recruitment and training you'll have a certain workload, but once you get into the job it is actually double. People who excel in certain departments are usually transferred so they can learn another part of the business, but this usually leads to managers who never did the job of the employees they manage and don't know what they're talking about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management model you have in place simply does not work. You have hired people with degrees in business and even MBAs in finance and yet you have them working client services instead of trading or investment counseling.

    Pros

    Friendly people
    Great management
    Not very competitive

    Cons

    Tell in offer letter it will be 45k based on 10 hour work week but end up paying you 41k if you work the 10 hours a day.
