I have been working at Fisher Investments

Pros

Compensation was good, especially starting out after college. Learn the ins and out of investment management. Great sales training.

Cons

Basically cold calling people every day, which can lead to frustration and burning out. Would like better opportunities for upward movement withing the company.

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

    Pros

    Good 401k match and plenty of great colleagues who are still friends. Good life balance ok as hours worked are very regimented and controlled. Great business model for gathering assets under management.

    Cons

    Septic culture of rampant nepotism and tenure based management with no outside experience, who are paid to follow directions and ask no questions. Prior/outside experience is considered worthless, as are graduate degrees and industry relevant designations. If you have these you are considered a threat to the Fisher groupthink. Very limited upside potential and very repetitive daily tasks. Tight, suspicious, untrusting control of all things by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not worth writing much here as they never showed any propensity to listen or any empathy for employees. This is one of the reasons for the poisonous work environment.

    I worked at Fisher Investments full-time

    Pros

    Non- authority colleagues are fantastic. Benefits and increased PTO/Sick time for all employees is a major plus.

    Cons

    You are continuously a robot working for a machine- no matter what position you uphold. All employees are held to a fear based driven sense of moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the majority of the "old school" management style but make an effort to modernize it to our current decade. Treat your employees as people not seat numbers.
