They want to make a difference in an industry that needs different, because they know that better matters.

At Fisher Investments we pride ourselves on building teams of people with unique perspectives, diverse backgrounds, and an appetite for innovation. You don’t have to have a business or finance degree or experience in the investment industry to work here. We’re interested in candidates who want to be a change-maker, work for a purpose-driven business, help us give people a better financial option, and learn, grow, and develop a career.

Entry Level Opportunities

We're always on the hunt for self-starters making their professional debut. Maybe you're just leaving college and looking for your first job. Or maybe you're striving to get a foot in the door at a company that can offer you a fulfilling work environment. Regardless, you're welcome here. You'll be surrounded by a tight-knit community, including many who have relocated to join the firm.

Grow Your Career

We encourage our employees to grow their skills and chart their own career paths based on their strengths and interests. All employees have had the opportunity to work in many different departments, and we like to promote from within - in fact, 87% of current managers have been promoted from within. With resources such as internal talent advising and career coaching, employees are empowered to build lifelong careers.

Ongoing Development

The firm offers ongoing training and development courses that cater specifically to our employees and their career paths. In fact, our training program was recently recognized by Training Magazine as a Training Top 125 Organization

A Collaborative Environment

Fisher Investments believes our success is in our ability to work together. We provide mentorship to all new employees in order to guide them through the onboarding process. We also believe in an open, team-oriented environment—there are no offices or cubicles, employees are grouped into teams, and the management structure is relatively flat. All of this promotes an interactive, collaborative setting where people are motivated to work at their full potential and gain a wide variety of experience by learning from others.

Our Hiring Philosophy

At Fisher Investments we pride ourselves on building teams of people with unique perspectives, diverse backgrounds, and an appetite for innovation. We look for candidates who embody our culture and hire based on skills and competencies.

Our Interview Process

Our process can differ from group to group, but you will likely experience some variation of one or more phone interviews and an on-site interview. At the end of the process, if we determine that you'd be a collective fit, we'll call you to discuss our offer before sending you a job offer letter. This is an exciting invitation to join us and start growing your Fisher career!

    Pros

    Too many times you see top-tier financial firms look to hire individuals that come from a certain type of family pedigree, and strictly those that have gone to Ivy League schools. As a first generation American, my parents didn't understand the American system to help guide me towards my future. Fisher Investments took me in with open arms after I graduated school, and has given me countless opportunities and support; some of the pros I’d like to highlight:

    • Company Culture – diversity is heavily promoted, regardless of your ethnicity, educational background, gender, sexual orientation, etc. you’re provided opportunities to be successful and move into a role you desire
    • Management Support – management provides support to its employees both inside and outside of Fisher Investments
    • Women Empowerment – 3 of the business units at Fisher Investments are led by women (at the very top of the business units)
    • Grooming from within – the firm promotes from within
    • Employees – the firm genuinely cares about its employees and their well-being which extends beyond the walls of Fisher Investments
    • Clients – the firm puts the client first, I’ve worked at banks/insurance companies prior coming to Fisher and they put numbers before their clients, it was a refreshing change that makes me very proud to this day
    • Benefits – 50% match on your 401K and medical/dental insurance that covered by the firm in its entirety
    • CEO – highly approve of the CEO, his first order was to meet with the majority of the firm to understand pain points and what we can be doing better as a company, which has resulted in various teams working to implement change employees want to see

    Cons

    • Technology – the tech used in the firm is outdated and slow, which can make certain assignments frustrating at times. I’m glad to see there is a plan that is currently in the works to transform this aspect of the company.
    • Hours – One would expect hours to be long, but the flexibility provided at other companies should be considered here. Not that flexible
    • Work from home – working from home isn’t really allowed, which would be a great benefit

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fisher Investments.

    Interview

    Phone Interview then an onsite for a superday, mostly low stress. The people were fairly friendly - the culture seemed a bit cult-ish with people talking about Ken Fisher like a god
