Former Employee - Finance in Woodside, CA
Former Employee - Finance in Woodside, CA

I worked at Fisher Investments full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Absolutely nothing. Waste of time.

Cons

Everything. The Woodside location is a joke. If you manage to make it to work without dying or crashing then you have to look for to 10 hours on mundane work that is micromanaged. Trained monkeys are able to do what the Finance people do. Terrible supervisors and managers or EVP or GVP...whatever they are called in the Finance group. You gain no relative experience that you can take away from working here because this is a terribly run company. I guess because I use my brain and don't work as a robot I saw through this joke of a company within weeks. Apparently there are many who enjoy drinking the kool-aid and sucking off the teets of Fisher.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, WA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, WA

    I worked at Fisher Investments as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pretty intelligent folks, nice co-workers, excellent benefits package, nice building in Camas, the help desk is pretty friendly, compensation is very competitive, Portland is right around the corner

    Cons

    Cult-ish 'values', unique management style, open layout, cannot even make a doctor's appointment without the entire floor knowing about it, blocked cell phone calls (you heard me), closed internet connection, hardly any online resources are normally available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making a big deal out of irrelevant issues, concentrate on keeping your valuable employees happy without resorting to managing by fear

    Pros

    Strongly promote from within.

    Cons

    Skills gained don't transfer to other industries as well as one would like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allowing a more flexible schedule within a window frame might improve morale.
