Pros

This company provides good advancement if you are willing to work hard. It continues to grow and they take good care of their employees. There are lots of opportunities for promotion within the firm either in your own department or in another department if you are interested in switching your focus. Job promotions are based on meritocracy, and if you show potential, there is great opportunity to be promoted to a management position fairly quickly.

Cons

If you want to just pass time, this is not likely an ideal place for you. You work for your rewards, don’t expect anything to be handed to you. You get out of the experience what you put in which is good for self-starters but not good for people who want to bide their time. 100% accountability and responsibility is mandatory to be successful at Fisher Investments, so if you have an undeserved sense of entitlement this might not be the firm for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to empower the employees to grow emotionally and mentally. Let the creative and talented people use their creativity and talents. Continue cultivating employee’s talents in a team atmosphere as everyone feels connected to their team and committed to pitching in. That is a great culture to keep fostering.

    Pros

    Fisher offers a team oriented environment ripe for learning as you are surrounded by intelligent, driven, and energetic people. If you show potential and are willing to work hard, career opportunities abound both laterally and vertically into management. It’s simply a great place to cultivate a career.

    Cons

    On the flip side, you have to utilize every minute of every day to accomplish your objectives. Furthermore, you are 100% responsible for taking ownership for your actions and that can be a lot of accountability. Especially, given Fisher Investments is a money management firm and can require tremendous attention to detail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It can often be hard to cultivate the needs of a growing employee base. I would encourage all levels of management to keep an open communication policy with their employees in order to continue fostering intellectual growth.

    I have been working at Fisher Investments

    Pros

    A few years ago, I began a new career with Fisher Investments. From the beginning, one drastic and much appreciated change from my previous employers is the energetic and team oriented work environment. It also became clear – and is still true to this day – that the firm encourages employees to pursue opportunities around the firm. Even if it’s a completely different department or career track.

    Cons

    Some of the jobs can be very fast paced and you assume great responsibility for yourself and the work you do. This is perfect for self-motivated individuals but not for people who simply want to show up. The company works off of a meritocracy system with strong competition, which means you need to bring your best every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees become comfortable and connected to their teams. This is a unique culture and should be a continued emphasis of the firm. Continue to communicate openly with employees.
