    I worked at Fisher Investments

    Pros

    Interns are extremely well received by most employees at Fisher. It isn't your typical bottom of the food chain atmosphere, you learn a lot and meet a ton of people. The program itself is designed very well to give a different day-to-day while also adding value to the intern experience. There is a feel of a "cultish" culture; however, people do seem genuine in how much they enjoy working there. Great stepping stone...

    Cons

    The company culture is slightly alarming to an outsider, some say it's a "drink the kool-aid" mentality. The pay for hourly intern is awesome, but we essentially get paid as much as an associate (which is bad for the associates). The tasks are menial that interns essentially are able to work at as an associate for some tasks. There is a lot of room for growth, it seems like they're wasting bodies by giving them tasks...

    Advice to Management

    Hire from the outside. Even former-CEO Ken Fisher said himself in a 1-on-1 with the intern group, that the company needs to hire more from the outside. Let's make the change in CEO a positive one and creates a culture that would vibe best with most so that Fisher can retain their talent instead of being used as a "great stepping stone" and having their best leave for companies that will pay them what they deserve.
