    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

    The pay straight out of college is very competitive for the area. If you are willing to work hard, you get a lot of experience very quickly, and there is a lot of opportunity to try different jobs in different areas of the company. Some of the managers are really great, and I know right now they're putting a lot of effort into revamping training throughout the firm.

    Cons

    They've been going through some growing pains in the last few years. They expanded very quickly, and are still trying to figure out how to catch up with the additional needs of a bigger company. This means a lot of trial and error in terms of both new positions and entirely new departments. While it can be exciting, it can also be unsettling and just plain frustrating when they get it wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between departments, and more cross training to help employees understand how their job fits into the big picture and affects other teams. Most of the problems between departments come down, essentially, to a simple lack of understanding.
